I'm Proud of my Mom

***** Update- good news. My mom is part of a team and they were able to help her out with the remaining money she needed to raise so it looks like she will be able to walk!!! I will keep you posted!

My mom is walking in the Twin Cities 3-day Walk for the Cure. She has been planning this for a long time. I am proud of my mom, she has been hard at work training to walk 60 miles in 3 days. It's coming up soon. My mom is walking in memory of her sister who died of breast cancer and for my dad's sister- who was diagnosed the day my mom signed up to walk. My aunt is fighting the cancer right now. I have a favor to ask of you. I would hate to see my mom do all this hard work and not be able to walk. Right now she doesn't think she will be able to. They set a pretty high goal, and if you don't reach it, you can't walk. She has had a garage sale and done some other fund raisers. She is getting there. The 3 day is August 21. If you could find it in your heart to donate even a small amount to this important cause I would appreciate it. You can click here to see my mom's page and donate. Thanks so much!

Good for her! I do a bike ride every year with some friends/family members for the Brain Tumor Society (my brother died of a BT ten years ago). I send a letter to 100+ friends/family/coworkers. Make the letter/email personal and tell people why you are participating. People are very generous and we make our goal every year. If you'd like to see one of my letters email me at Good luck to your mom!

That's so amazing that her team helped her out. It would have been so disappointing not to be able to walk after all of the training she has already done. What a blessing!
