Praying for a Miracle & Walking for a Cure

Every year it seems we are bombarded by more & more offers to support this organization, or donate to that cause. And I have to admit, sometimes I just get numb to them all, even those of which are for things I do care about.

But then it seems we are thrown a curve ball, seemingly out of nowhere, and suddenly your whole outlook changes.

This week my dear sister, Heather, was diagnosed with breast cancer. And although the statistics, at one time, were 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed, it doesn't really hit home until someone you love, is given that life-changing diagnosis.

So it is with this news, that my family is asking for your support. My daughter, Kyra and I will be walking the 1-mile course in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, on Sunday, September 21, 2008, in honor of my sister, and Kyra's aunt. If you'd like to help sponsor us, click on the link below to go to the donation page.

Imagine the Impact... Donate to the 2008 Komen Portland Race for the Cure!

We also understand in these times of tight pocketbooks, and rising costs that it might be too much of a stretch for some of you to support us financially.

So for you, you have a much bigger task :-) PRAY, PRAY, PRAY! Heather sees the surgeon this coming Monday to discuss the plan of action, and we are just praying for clarity, and calmness.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me, and again, above all, we are coveting your prayers.

God Bless, k~
