Why I Walk-AVON Walk for Breast Cancer 2009

I just completed my page on the AVON Walk for Breast Cancer website! You're probably thinking FINALLY! The walk is in October and I am just started my fundraising. The paragraph below is what I put on the site and the link is in my sidebar (AVON Walk for Breast Cancer 2009) if anyone would like to donate to my walk.

Most of you know that I am a breast cancer survivor. I was 34 years old when I received my diagnosis in February of 2006. I am walking for many reasons. The main one being that I would like to see a cure for breast cancer in my life time. I walk because I don't want my daughter to live in fear that breast cancer will do the same thing to her as it did to me. I walk for the women who can't walk. It took me 3 years to be able to wake up in the morning and not have the word 'cancer' cross my mind. I did not let cancer define me but it did change me, and the way I view every day life. I like to say, I may have had cancer, but cancer never had me. With your donations breast cancer can be a thing of the past. Please help me eradicate this terrible disease and give hope to those fighting it now. Thank you so much!
