The Race for the Cure

I wrote before about how Susan G. Komen for the Cure has been an amazing financial help. Immediately upon my diagnosis last October, this foundation offered me a grant that covered all of my medical costs. They have also provided us with an additional grant to help offset other expenses due to my cancer. We will always be grateful for Komen's generosity and work on my behalf.

Gilead and I have become part of the advertising campaign to raise funds for breast cancer research, diagnosis and treatment through Denver's Race for the Cure that will be held on Sunday, October 4, 2009. Although I will not be running, I have registered and am asking all of you to consider donating funds to the Denver Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Click on the link to my race page (http://www.komendenver.org/site/TR/Race/General?px=1639263&pg=personal&fr_id=1090) if you're interested in giving. Donations are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated by folks like me.



This is one of the pictures taken for Komen's fundraising.

Just saw a link to your blog on Facebook via Amy Hamilton, recognized your name, and read. Don't know if you recognize me from Ambassador; however, I was Renee Kelso back then. Was touched by your blog. What a beautiful woman inside AND out! Know that we will be praying for you and I will be having our church pray for you as well. I know God will continue to give you and your family the strength you need every moment - Psalms 18:30-33
