Last year my walk was all about family - my daughters and I walked together in the hope that I would be both the first and the final woman in our family to be diagnosed with breast cancer.
This year I'm walking for my friends. So many of my friends are going through the mammogram-call-back scare. So many are having follow-up mammograms, follow-up ultrasounds and biopsies. Even if you get all the way to having a biopsy and find out its not cancer the terror and sleepless nights that come during those early days of testing and waiting and testing and waiting are so traumatic. So this walk is dedicated to my friends - those who have gone through treatment this year and those who are going through treatment right now and those who are getting those dreaded mammogram call-backs.
Let's beat this thing together.
