Note: Just noticed (thanks, Janet!) that I put those I was walking for on the "In Memory" side - indicating they had died. This is not the case for either - they're both survivors and admirable (breathing, heart-beating) women. My participation in the walk, and this post, is In Honor of Mom Morgan and Aunt Carol.
Today was the annual AK Run for Women - an event held to support survivors of and victims to breast cancer alike, as well as a fund raiser for research for the cure. Each year I participate, I marvel at the many, many lives touched by breast cancer, and the many, many people who love and support those that have suffered. I watched a father and small child in front of us, walking in memory of a loved one. Could be a mother, a sister, a wife, an aunt... A sea of pink ball caps indicated those directly affected - you couldn't look in any direction, except to find someone who has battled (or is battling) breast cancer.
