Every year we walk. We walk 26.2 miles to help raise awareness and funds for cancer research. Every year we walk, we will laugh, will get weepy and then we laugh again! Every year we walk and we have to add names to the reasons why we walk. We never want to add friends and family to the list but every year we do.
It has been a long few months for my Dad and those who love him. Chemo is behind him. Radiation is next. Then a craziy surgery called the whipple! "We are confident that you will not die of pancreatic cancer” were the words we heard from his team at the first meeting. Just a few years ago people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer did not hear those words no matter at what stage they were diagnosed. So we walk. We walk to raise awareness and funds for cancer research.
