Walking the walk...

My friend Laura is participating in this year's 3 Day Breast Cancer Walk taking place in Seattle September 12-14. She and her fellow walking teammates will be walking 60 miles over the course of the 3 days in honor of her grandmother, Nellie Faye, who passed away from Breast Cancer 40 years ago - and she'll be walking with her mother who was diagnosed just last September with Breast Cancer.

I met Laura last year when I did the Pennies for Peace Drive. She was the first person to contact me and offered her full support. Without Laura's help during the drive, it would not have been the success that it was- thank you Laura!

All of us probably have been affected in some way by knowing someone diagnosed with Breast Cancer...a mother, sister, aunt, coworker, or maybe even yourself. I admire Laura for what she is doing and am very happy to hear that her mother is doing very well. This is a horrible thing to have happen to anyone, and I fully support every effort to find a cure. If you'd like to join me in supporting Laura in her 60 mile walk, please click here, or on the link to your right and you will go directly to her fund raising page.

Thank you!
