Why? Just a few days ago I went for a haircut and was reminded about why I'm walking in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. My hairdresser, Angela, has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She is without health insurance and as if living with the knowledge that she has cancer isn't enough, she's living with the loss of her mother and one sister who lost the fight against breast cancer. Tulsa Project Woman gave her some complimentary testing and now she's receiving treatment with the help of governmental aid. But it's organizations like Avon and this walk that continue to support women who cannot pay. For that, I am grateful.
If you have any interest in supporting this cause and my fundraising efforts, you can visit www.avonwalk.org/goto/candicewalksforacure. And thank you to Jen for inviting me, to Kelly for inviting her and for Amanda and Jill who were brave enough to join in on the fun!
