These Boobs Are Made For Walking

We’ve spent months training and preparing, covering miles and miles. We’ve grown from a pair of old friends planning to walk together, to a team of 12 amazing women. We’ve raised over $40,000. And it’s finally time to walk.

The Chest Nuts and I will be walking 60 miles this coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, along with somewhere around 2000 other people. We will be walking to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure and, more importantly, to do what we can so that hopefully YOU will never have to go through what I went through last year. We are walking for ourselves, for our mothers, our daughters, our sisters, our grandmothers, our aunts, our nieces, our fathers, our brothers, our sons, our husbands, and our friends. We are walking for everyone who is battling this disease right now and in honor of those who have lost their battles. Every step we take and every dollar we raise represents another step toward the eradication of and a cure for breast cancer.

I am so lucky to be strong and healthy and alive and able to take part in this event. Thank you so much for your support in my journey to get here.

Update: I have been invited to be one of two survivors who will speak at the camp show on Saturday night. There will only be between 1500 and 2500 people there...I'm not nervous or anything. (!)

Here is a link to the supporter page at the 3Day website. At the top of the page is a feed from the live webcam at camp which will be active between 2:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. (CST). (Video only, no audio.)
