As most of you know, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and recently completed a year+ of treatment. Throughout the process, I was overwhelmed and blessed with amazing support from family and friends near and far. I am also extremely fortunate to have a good healthcare plan (well, pretty good), and to live in a city where great doctors and quality care are readily available.
This September, I am walking in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Santa Barbara as a survivor. I walk for those who are not as fortunate, for those who can't afford proper medical care, for those who are seeking a cure for this disease.
I will walk a marathon and a half (that's nearly 40 miles!) over two days and I plan to spend the next several months training and fundraising. I'm one of thousands of people all over the country who will be doing this to raise funds for the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade and support their mission to advance access to care and find a cure.
I'm honored to help others get the same chance at survival that I had. And I'm looking forward to a special Avon Walk weekend of celebrating my own survivorship among a community of people who are just as passionate about this cause as I am.
