Komen 3 Day Walk For Breast Cancer Awareness

I'm finally doing it!! Thanks HUBBY!!

For years now I have wanted to participate in the Komen 3 Day Walk for Breast Cancer but for one reason or another it has never been possible for me to do so. This year it took on even more significance and I wanted to do it even more than ever before. I got information on it a couple of months ago when my best friend was in the hospital for her breast cancer surgery. However, I never got around to asking my hubby about doing it UNTIL tonight. I finally decided it was time to ask and sign up if I was going to do it.

You've heard the bible verse that says, "Ask and you shall receive", right? Well I did and I received permission to do this!! YAY!! I explained that this would be a 3 day - 60 mile walk and it was in November so I still have plenty of time to prepare. HE SAID YES!! I get to finally do one of my "bucket list" things!! I will be walking November 4-6 here in the Dallas area to raise $2300 for Breast Cancer awareness! That amount of money is mind boggling to me...but I know that it is possible to raise. I have several months to raise the money and I know that I can do it with the help of my friends and family!! So PLEASE help me raise this money to support Breast Cancer.

Breast cancer is a disease that is VERY close to me. At Christmas my best friend was diagnosed with breast cancer...she went through chemo, and surgery this year. She is doing VERY well and we Thank God daily for her coming through this. One of my grandmother's had breast cancer and died as a result of NOT getting the care she needed, so I know that this disease is a KILLER! I also know that with prompt care and attention women can live through this and can be SURVIVORS! I want to do my part..Will you do your part, too? Please help by donating here if you can support me in my 3 Day Walk, k??
