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:

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!
