walk this way
So we are all set. All systems are go. Nichol and her family and friends, along with my family we'll be participating in the Breast Cancer walk in Sacramento(may 13). I am posting here so that if anyone that reads here(my lil blog), felt compelled to donate, they would know exaclty where to go. I really have a mixed bag of emotions with this walk. While I am so happy to be part of such a big movement to work on raising money for breast cancer research. I can't help but feel conflicted about the "why."
In the past, when I thought of participating in a walk for a cure, I never thought it would be for one of my best friends. Like I told her, I would walk the world, if it means that I can fix this cancer. I guess we all would. She continues to amaze me everyday, with her love for life, and her absolute inner beauty. I look at her and think- I just don't know if I could be as strong as her.
So I walk by her side and support her through this journey. I hope that I can say the right words each day and on days when she doesn't feel so optismistic, I can bring her back to that place.
Meanwhile each day live life and do all those things we put off because we are so busy letting life pass us by.
In my mind, in what seems like a dream like state , I think of the day when we celebrate that she is cancer free. Her family and mine celebrating with balloons, and cakes stacked high with fluffy whip cream, whatever she wanted because it would be "her day" and nothing could change the happiness that we all feel on this special day.
This day will come.
Here is the information about my home page for the race. Nichol's information is on there as well.
