avon breast cancer walk
- As many of you know, I have been talking about the avon breast cancer
walk for the last couple of weeks. This group was key to my own
recovery through my difficult bout with cancer, knitted uteri and all!
I have decided to give back to the community at large through
participating in the avon breast cancer walk 2 day walk June 6 and 7.
While my cancer was not breast cancer, I still feel breast cancer
strikes primarily at women, like my own cancer did.
This walk is a way for me to confirm my own wellness, as well as
remember the other women in my life who are cancer survivors, my
mother and my aunts.
This walk supports underinsured women here in Chicago, in addition to
other aspects of breast cancer research and charities.
Please help support me in my own personal fight so other women won't
have to struggle with the same financial burden I did. Any sum, even
Here's a link to donate: http://info.avonfoundation.org/site/TR/Walk2009/Chicago?
You can also donate or buy yarn from my own personal stash, which I am
selling off to support this. Yes, that's how serious I am! Check out
