2006 Susan G. Komen Race For the Cure

In 2002 my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had a lumpectomy and had a round of radiology treatments. She's been declared cancer free but there is always that worry that it may come back or may move to another part of her body.

This year will be my third year doing the walk. The last two years my mother-in-law has joined me for the event. I haven't said anything to her this year because I think the post office ate my t-shirt and race number. I've called the local Susan G. Komen office to check on it. :)

I can't describe how overwhelming it is to take part in an event such as this. You see the thousands of women, men, children (and dogs!) doing the race with you and you look at the pink signs on their backs. They are all walking for people who have survived or passed away from breast cancer. It is just too much.

If you wish to learn more about breast cancer and how you can help, you can do a few things:
Stop by the Susan G. Komen web site.
Click to provide women with Free Mammograms.
Sponsor someone who is walking in the Race For the Cure.
