Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

My Making Strides Page

Once again, my office is participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Washington, D.C. I’m a little concerned about the logistics since there are also dueling rallies supposedly scheduled for that day, but hopefully it won’t be too crazy.

My mom had breast cancer. I remember getting the call shortly after starting graduate school 700 miles away and feeling helpless. She recovered, thank goodness, but it was a pretty rough time for the whole family. Two Christmases in a row were quiet because she was recovering from surgery. Her mother and sister had also survived breast cancer, so it wasn’t a total shock, but that doesn’t make it any better. Still, every time I hear of someone dying from this disease, I call up my mom just to say hello.

I unfortunately cannot attend the walk this year, but I’m still helping fund-raise. If you would like to donate, please click here.

On the morning of Halloween this year, I will be participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Washington, DC. I am walking in honor of my mother, my grandmother, and my aunt, all of whom survived breast cancer. I’ve never done one of these charity walks before, but I think it’ll be good.

If you would like to make a donation or learn more, please visit my participant page.
