Hi everyone. I wanted to share this with all of my alumni.
My mom was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. They are confident that she will make a complete recovery, but only time will tell. She found a lump last November. She had a lumpectomy with many small surgeries to try to have "clear margins". Right before Christmas, the surgeon had to perform a mastecomy to be sure she removed it all. My mom has just finished her last chemo session yesterday. Throughout the last 7 months my mom has remained optimistic and joyful. She has lost almost all of her hair, but she has her life.
She has inspired me to share her joy through such a tough time. In her honor, I've decided to join other women and men throughout the US in participating in the 3DAY breast caner walk. I will be walking 60 miles in 3 days. The money raised will go to breast cancer research. Every 14 minutes a woman dies from breast cancer.
If you can donate any amount, I would be very appreciative.
To donate: www.the3day.org. Click on donate. I'm walking in Tampa Bay. Renee Patten. This will take you to my webpage.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Hi Dave,
I go to the breast cancer site daily to click on the FREE MAMMOGRAMS button. And I've spent a few dollars buying stuff there.
