Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Posted by Liz McCoy Friday, October 10, 2008

Well you may or may not know that the month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You may also know someone who has been affected by this disease. Maybe you know a survivor or someone who has died from this disease.

My sister in law lisa is doing one of the most supportive endeavors (in my opinion) for the fight against this disease. She is Walking for a Cure in the Atlanta Breast Cancer 3 Day. This is a 3 day walk totaling 60 miles. She has made this commitment to walk to honor wonderful women in her life and her family’s lives.

“I will be walking this year for some amazing women including my husband's grandmother, Billie, also my stepmother's cousin and aunt, Jose and Betty. All of these women have inspired me to join in the fight against breast cancer. They will remain in my heart as I train. I have met and heard of many other women and families who battle breast cancer and many who have lost the fight and these stories have also inspired me to walk for a cure. My stepsister has also been an inspiration to me as she has walked for the last 3 years now and will be walking again this year. I will be walking for our futures and for my daughter's future as well.” ~ Lisa McCoy

The walk is taking place on October 24, 2008 she is excited to fulfill her commitment to those who have donated and to those she is honoring with her walk. She still needs to raise a bit more money to reach her goal of $2,200. I would love it if you could give a little bit to support her and to really support this tremendous cause. She has a few weeks left to raise $600, I know it is hard to find the money to give when the economy is down. But we give what we can, every little bit counts.

Remember the principle of giving equals receiving and know that as you give you will receive back greater than you ever thought you could.
