Mom's 39 mile foot!

The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer!

My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in October of 2008. Two surgeries and six weeks of radiation later, she was cancer free and has been ever since. Because of this, she decided to do the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. It is a 2 day 39 mile walk that raises money for breast cancer awareness. (This money does not specifically go to research. A lot of it is used to get mammograms and treatment for people that would otherwise be unable to get it) Anyway, my mom did the walk all on her own, and we are so proud of her! She raised over $2500 that will be put to use in the Houston area. She wants to do the walk again so please let her know if you would be interested in donating! She walked all over the Houston area during the two days and met a lot of really interesting people. Maybe I will get to do this walk next year with her.

Save the TaTas!
