DAILY PROMPT

024

As I sat there starring at the monitor…I heard a blur of voices around me…a rush of blood come to my head, dizziness, fear, my hands started to uncontrollably tremble.  I felt a numbing sensation of disbelief over come me…

Was that what I think is is? Wait, what am I looking at again? NO, it couldn’t be…NO not me!  This is a mistake, right?!?  WHAT A CURVEBALL!!!

Google Search calls it

Devastated I try to bring myself back to reality…  I am alone in a room with 2 doctors and a technician.  At 40 years old I was told I had cancer…stage IIIB breast cancer. Immediately my thoughts go back to my Grandmothers battle, a long battle lost over 20 years earlier, but I was determined it wasn’t going to happen to me…

 


I have decided to participate in this years “AVON 39” Walk to End Breast Cancer.

This will be my third walk I have participated in over the past 6 years.  It won’t be easy, but that’s why it’s worth it. From now until AVON 39 weekend, I’ll train to strengthen my body to walk over 39 miles in two days. I’ll also be raising funds to crush breast cancer. This is where you come in.

So many sisters and mothers and friends have been lost. We see a world without breast cancer for our daughters and nieces. AVON 39 is a force of change that can’t be stopped. By supporting me with a donation, you’re part of it.
