Hi everyone.

 

I've posted on here before that FI's cousin, Alice, has been diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 31. She has recently undergone a double masectomy and reconstructive surgery, and is now on some pretty intense doses of chemo.

 

On June 7th, FI, FMIL, and I will be heading down to Washington DC to participate in the Susan G Komen National Race for the Cure. I will be on Alice's sister's team, My Vision, named after the foundation Alice has created for other young women with breast cancer. Here's her website: Home

 

I know that money is tight for many people right now, but I am hoping that a few people will be interested in sponsoring me for the walk. I would be so happy if just one person on BDW made a donation.

 

Here is my donation page: https://www.kintera.org/faf/donorReg...upId=220013332

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this. And please keep Alice in your thougths and prayers during this difficult time for her.

Would you mind if I add Alice's name to my list of people I walk in honor of. I participate in the Breast Cancer 3 Day every year, and this year Im walking in two cities.

 

I design a tshirt every year to wear on the walk of all the people I walk in honor of. I would love to put Alice's name on there.

All of my thoughts are with Alice & your/her family. Hope my little bit helps you reach your fundraising goal

You guys have been so wonderful! I'm overwhelmed! I can't believe I have $90 supporting my walk! Thank you thank you thank you!

 

Sgt. Pepperette, of course you can walk in honor of Alice. She'd be thrilled! If you get any pictures of the t-shirt or of you wearing it, I'd love to see it.

 

Also, if anyone knows a young woman who could benefit from Alice's foundation, please let her know about the organization. I think she's doing such a wonderful thing and I want as many women to get the help and support they need as possible.

 

Thanks again!
