Race for the Cure

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 10:04 am

Tonight Nick and I are driving down to Gatesville to see Nick’s brother and sister-in-law, Bubba and Marci. Tomorrow, we will rise, bright and early, to participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K.

Marci is a Survivor, as is my grandmother. My step-great-grandmother also had breast cancer. Breast cancer affects over 200,000 women each year. Significant advances in breast cancer research and treatment have increased surviorship each year.

I’ve done the Komen several times before here in Dallas. It’s a powerful, powerful event. Just imagine being surrounded by almost 40,000 other women, all there for the same purpose. To beat breast cancer. Girls, take care of your girls!
