And the winner is...

Last year I trained for 6 months, raised $4,500 thanks to fabulous friends and family, and walked 60 miles in the Breast Cancer 3-Day in October. I can't top that this year, though I'm in year two of growing my hair to donate it to women through Pantene Beautiful Lengths, and have an appointment next week to have all my lady parts and one annoying mole on my shoulder checked for cancer. But... In reading your post, I realize I have stopped doing the one thing that my dear friend, Yvonne (who is battling stage 4 breast cancer), said meant the most ... Since the walk, I haven't been stopping by to just listen and to pray with her like I had been. Praying out loud is hard for me and so I stopped. So thanks for your post, I'm stopping by today on my way home from work.

Deb, you are so totally telling cancer to suck it!! Congratulations--you will soon be the proud owner of some Mary Kay SPF 30 sunscreen (and maybe even an extra goody or two).

  1. Deb,
    Your entry really touched me. It's funny how we sometimes lose touch with people who mean so much to us and need us the most. I'm glad you shared this story. I don't have anyone who is currently suffering from cancer in my life, but I realize from reading your comment that there are people I need to reconnect with before I lose the chance.

    I look forward to reading your blog. Have fun applying your sunscreen!


Be nice or I'll punch you in the taco.
