Just past 50% and humbled 100%!
May 12, 2018
Wow, time sure flies by... It's been 17 years since we last celebrated Mother's Day with Mom. Hard to believe, especially since I miss her as much today as I did when we lost her to breast cancer back in 2001. So this year, once again, I walk in memory of Mom. Taken much sooner than any of us ever expected, but loved and missed as much today as ever.
It's also hard to believe it's been almost 11 years since the life-changing day when I received my own diagnosis of breast cancer. Something that I wish no one ever had to experience, and something that I deeply wanted my mother's support to get through. But with the support of my wonderful husband and supportive friends and family, I got through it, in spite of having to do it without my mom by my side. So this year, once again, I also walk in celebration of my own survival.
Thank you for supporting me and Susan G. Komen® Minnesota as I walk again this year. I am deeply grateful for your generosity!
