Despite the rain, today’s Breast Cancer Action (BCA) walk was a huge success.
My mom walked ahead with Bev, and I think Alice and I were the last two to finish the 5k. Alice and I may have our limitations, but we were determined go all the way. And we did it! Together! A group of friends cheered us across the finish line.
It meant a lot that my mom was here to participate today. Below is a picture of her dancing during the warm-up (which won't surprise anyone who knows her!).
I don’t have the final count, but I know I had over $2,500 in pledges. Thank you to everyone who sponsored me. The money is going to a very worthy cause: Breast Cancer Action.
As mentioned before, I did the walk today in memory of friends Mary O'Rourke and Meridy Foster.
One of the challenges of having advanced cancer is that there aren't enough good-news stories. While it may be necessary to go to the 'dark side' at times, I want to create a blog that is about living in the moment and finding joy in the small things.
