Why I Walk....

I walk for all my friends who haven't figured out yet that they should be walking with me.

The ones who will find a lump. The ones who will lose a Mom to breast cancer. The ones who have the breast cancer gene, but don't even know how to find out about it. The ones who don't remember to do their self exams. The ones who aren't even "old enough" to have their first mammograms -- and don't know that cancer is already lurking in their bodies.

I walk for my friends. The ones who don't have cancer and never will. But that doesn't mean their lives won't be touched by this terrible disease.

I walk for my friends. The ones who aren't ready to join in the walk yet, but who open their checkbooks and make donations to support this cause that needs their support so badly.
