Yes, I’m going to walk. Or at least ride the little survivor trolley down to the finish line.
No, I don’t know what to expect. This is my first time! But I hear that it’s an incredible experience (similar to Relay for Life and the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer) and I’m eager to experience it.
Yes, I would be thrilled if you’d walk for me in the race near you. Let me know and I’ll put your name and picture up on a special page that I’m working on to recognize all the work that you’re doing to help me get the word out about inflammatory breast cancer, the silent killer!
Yes, it would be awesome to meet up at the Baltimore (Hunt Valley, MD) race on October 14. I’ll be the one in the pink shirt. (Kidding. Every survivor will be wearing a pink shirt, and there will be thousands of us! I’ll be wearing a light pink Team WhyMommy t-shirt, of course!) I’ll also be happy to meet you someplace that we both can find — it’s so sweet of you to ask!
Yes, we can walk together (here’s an easy link to register for the walk in MD if you don’t have a team already). I’m not asking for anything special or even for you to sponsor me in the walk. I’m not a fundraiser, and I know how hard it is for many of us to make ends meet. What I want is for people to hear about inflammatory breast cancer. That’s why I’m doing this. That’s why I’m blogging publicly about my private response to inflammatory breast cancer. Right down to the hot flashes.
Walk with WhyMommy.
Write with WhyMommy.
I’m so glad that you’re on my team.
This is my brother. I believe that he is the very first Walker for WhyMommy. He ran in last weekend’s Race for the Cure in Portland, Oregon, with 46,000 of his closest friends. He put my blogname on his back and ran this race. I am so proud of him.
