As many of you know my friend's little girl Hannah is fighting Leukemia right now. I have had my own personal struggles with cancer in recent years and lost my husband to pancreatic cancer in 2013. Like us all I've watched countless friends and relatives in the fight including my childhood pal and courageous advocate Martina Doran. I'm walking to show solidarity with survivors and those in the fight and to fund important research - I'm taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
