Stepping out in courage

Thursday, March 15, 2012

A couple days ago, I stepped in to the vacant roll of leader for Southeastern CT SparkPeople team, and I also began forming a team by the same name for our local Relay for life (zip 06360) and am looking for local people to join me. I walked two years ago before all my surgeries - cervical spine fusion, knee arthroscopy and lumbar spine fusion (injury related, not due to cancer) - and plan to walk 1-2 miles at least on the first day of the event.

The web link is
The name of the team is Southeastern CT SparkPeople

This is being brave for those who have been brave in the face of battle.
For both my grandmothers, one who faced and fought multitudes of cancers for 8 years; for my father-in-law who succumbed to colon cancer; for my friend Mavis who died after her battle with breast cancer shortly after I lost my step-mother from breast cancer; for my husband who has fought several bouts with skin cancer.

I was determined to do this, and I am.
If you are local and want to join me, send me a message.

    So sorry you have lost so many people to cancer :( My Mom is a uterine cancer survivor, it was caught very early fortunately, thanks to aggressive and close screening by her Doctors.
    I think its wonderful you are doing this.
