Think Pink: Almost Spring!

Think Pink: Almost Spring!

Almost Spring!

March 9, 2010
After months of cold, dreary, wet weather, we had a gorgeous, sunny day today! 73 degrees, too! I know, I know, there is rain in the forecast, but I'm counting my blessings one day at a time (literally!)
I'm looking forward to Spring Break next week. My plans? Well, at least one craft/scrapbooking/jewelry making day with friends, some time with my favorite girls: Mom, Chari, Melanie and Natty, and a few days in Fredericksburg with Mark and Ryan.
Wishing each of you bright, sunshiny days!

p.s. Pray for a cure for cancer!

Melanie is a "Walk Star"!

I haven't blogged in a while, as you can see!

Melanie's 3 Day, 60 mile walk in November was a total success! I'm so proud of my precious daughter for all the hard work and sacrifice that she put into this endeavor- what an amazing way to honor me and other Breast Cancer Survivors!

Thanks to all of you who supported her with donations, prayers, encouragement, and cards!

San Francisco Trip

A few months ago, I was invited to speak to the employees of Genomic Health in Redwood City, CA, near San Francisco. This is a great company that performs tests on breast cancer patients to help oncologists and patients make informed treatment decisions. Each year, they select a "patient ambassador" and this year it was me! I invited the most special girls in my life to share this experience with me- my daughter Melanie, my mom, Marcela, my sister, Chari, and my niece Natalie. We spent 2 days in Redwood City, and 2 in San Francisco.
Here's a link to the company website. They were kind enough to include my story in their patient profile section.

Here is a link to some pictures of our San Francisco trip:

60 miles - 3 days - 1 Cause

Melanie is training
for the Dallas 3 Day Walk
in November. She works out
with a personal trainer 3-4 days/week, along with walking/running with either Mark or her 3 Day teammate, Taylor. They have done several 10-mile walks, and one 16 mile walk! That one took 5 hours. I'm so proud of her!! I've been working with a trainer as well, but I won't ready for the 3 Day this year. Maybe in 2010! We've also started the fundraising for this event. She hand painted wine and martini glasses and I decorated glass bottles (pictured above) Fun stuff!

Race for the Cure

I was so excited that all four of us walked in the Ft. Worth Race for the Cure in April. My sister Chari, and my niece, Natalie joined us, as well as my cousin Rick and his son Eric from Austin.
