Day 160

Before I get out for my walk this almost-dark and rainy evening, I want to give you a heads-up about the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, coming to my town this June. The Relay for Life is a 12-hour relay walk from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., which is meant to symbolize the cancer patient’s long journey from darkness into dawn.

I’m a team captain this year, something I’ve never done before in my life! On my relay team are four breast cancer survivors and one devoted caregiver. There are Relay for Life walks all across the country — if you’re a walker, and even if you’re not, you can get involved: organize a team, sponsor a friend, or hey, I have an idea!! SPONSOR THE MYBIGWALK team.

  • More information will be coming shortly.

Meanwhile, send me your photos so I can post them next week! And Storey, have a great great time in Hawaii. You lucky babe.
