Split-Second Story / One Step Toward a Cure


For the past 3 years I have participated in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day walk for breast cancer. The two women in this photo are my teammates. Between now and the second weekend in November we will walk hundreds of miles and take thousands upon thousands of steps. The many miles and many steps will prepare us to walk 60 miles in 3 days. During those walks we will discuss everything from religion, politics, our families, past walks, future walks, pets, food, and personal things that can only be shared when you are in the process of developing yet another callous on your right foot.

This photo represents a step, a split-second in the fight for a cure.

    All the best with training and the walk, Tree. I know you can do it. This journey sounds like it will take you many places, so have fun and enjoy the sights. Just remember, wear a good pair of runners or walking shoes πŸ™‚

    My daughter and husband both had cancer in the last five years. You, and people like you, helped put and keep the disease in the past tense. Both are totally cancer-free. Thank you. β™‘

      I am so glad they are both cancer free! The woman walking on the right is our team captain she is a 9 year survivor. Sadly I walk in memory of my favorite aunt.
