I had a very long and boring weekend, thanks to the removal of my appendix! I have been very sore but I am sooooo tired of being stuck in the house. Yesterday was our local Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. I was planning on participating and was sad when I realized that my surgery would keep me from walking 3 miles. Well I decided that many of the women participating in the race have been through much worse pain than having there appendix removed so I decided to go. I was so happy I did! There is nothing I love more than seeing miles and miles of PINK! We thought we were close to the front of the line until we turned the corner and saw this...
This brought me to tears! There were men and women of ALL ages walking to support their loved ones. I walked a little over 2 miles and then I knew it was time for me stop. Next year I would love to run the 5K, if not I will definitely be walking!
I walked to show support for...
My grandmother- she is a survivor at 86 years old
My Nana's sister, Barbara- she is a survivor
My friend Katelyn's mom, Sue- she just found out this summer that she had breast cancer. She is now having chemo treatments. She is on treatment 2 of 4 and is determined as ever to kick cancer's butt! We know that next year she will join us at the race as a SURVIVOR!
