Ms. Suzanne M Williamson
At the info session for my first walk the speaker said that "one out of 4 women would be diagnosed". At that time I walked because my grandmother and my great aunt had been diagnosed and the thought of it being in my family without a cure scared me.
In the years since I've done my first walk I found out how true the statistic one in four really is. Thankfully, my friends that have been diagnosed are survivors.
This year when one of my closest friends was diagnosed I to committed to my 5th walk. I'm not going to find a cure or develop technology to rid the world of it BUT I can walk and raise money to support those who will.
I'm walking as a TRIBUTE to my good friend Anita... and once she is cancer free we will be celebrating with shots of Patron.... because not only is she a fighter.. she's a survivor..
Thank you for your support!
