Cancer Made Me Do It

I had lunch with my good friend, Sharon, last week. She is also a breast cancer survivor and one of the few people who 'gets' everything I'm feeling.

We talked about how, if given the chance, neither one of us would give our cancer diagnosis back.
We are better people because of it.
We are strong, able, and we want to raise money and awareness so that someone else won't have to fight the battle that we did.
We want to see a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime.

We have decided that, not only are we going to do the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5k walk on Mother's Day, we are also going to commit to raising at least $2300 each before August 2013, so we are able to participate in the 60-mile, 3-day Susan G. Komen walk.
Beating cancer has made us feel like we can accomplish anything. 

I can walk the 60 miles, but I need your help with the fundraising.
No amount is too small;  All donations are tax-deductible and it's an amazing cause.

Please considering donating to our team, Walkers for Knockers. Nice name, huh? :)  There's a link in my sidebar. It only takes a minute and will bring us closer to our goal.
Seventy-five percent of the net proceeds raised by the Susan G. Komen 3-Day™ help fund national research and large public health outreach programs. The remaining 25 percent helps fund local community and Affiliate support and outreach programs.

**We are always welcoming new team members; if you're interested in walking with us,  contact me!**
