Today I visited a friend in the hospital...

Today I visited a friend in the hospital.  She's a married 32
year old mother of 2 young boys...and she has breast cancer.  You
would not expect her to get cancer.  She's really healthy,
exercises, runs marathons.  She's AMAZING!  I don't know what I
expected when I went to visit...but it certainly wasn't the positive,
upbeat, smiling woman I saw.  She looked AMAZING.  Not like
she'd just had a double mastectomy on Wednesday.  As I am sitting
here typing this, the feelings that come to mind are...don't take a
single thing for granted.  Make sure you live each day to the
fullest.  Enjoy EVERYTHING.  Cherish EVERYTHING.  I also
find myself reinvigorated for the Breast Cancer 3 Day 90 mile walk that I
signed up for a few months ago.  The walk isn't until November so I
haven't started training.  I haven't started my donation
drive.  Until today, I hadn't found my motivation.  Well, here
it is.  I'm walking for LW, my friend.  I'm walking for a
cure.  I'm walking for those who can't.  This is my second
time walking this event.  The first time, I was motivated for the
physical aspect of it...the walking.  When I got there, I was
overwhelmed by all of the breast cancer survivors...all of the family
walking for lost loved ones.  Now, it's me who has someone to walk
for.  So if you would like to make a donation or even join our team
click on the link on the side of the blog.  You won't regret it!
