I Have Had Many Friends with Breast Cancer - Deborah H. Lawson
I`ve had many friends with breast cancer and my Step-Mom is a survivor as well. I started racing (walking) with my best friend before she got cancer. We managed to get a group of about 30 women each year and it was a day to share. We started our day with the race, lunch, and afternoon walks along the river walk to remember our family and friends that have left us. Mostly though, we celebrated the survivors! Many more women would have suffered death from breast cancer if it were not for the Komen dedication to preventing and curing the disease. So, all you Scimitar Shrine Ladies that use to walk with Nancy and myself, get out there this year and remember………..all the good times!
