Linda's Walk for Hope 2012


223 percent of goal achieved.

Breast cancer has affected my family on a very personal level. There is a history of breast cancer on both sides of my family. My Aunt Linda died of breast cancer at the age of 46. Much, much too young! And her daughter, my cousin Kathleen, is a breast cancer survivor!!!! My paternal great grandmother died of breast cancer. My Great Aunt Wendy is a survivor!!!! Last year at the time of the walk, my Aunt Gail was battling cancer. This year I am thrilled to say "She is a survivor!". I personally had breast surgery at the tender age of 12! It was an extremely scary time for me. I know this threat is real!

I am determined to be a part of the solution by funding research to find a cure!

Won't you please help me? Come walk with me or make a donation in honor of Linda or someone you know who has been affected by breast cancer. Let's make breast cancer a thing of the past!

2012 Walk Dedication

This year's walk is dedicated in memory of my friend Kelsey's mother, Arden Burgess, who couragiously lost her battle with breast cancer.


I lost my mother to breast cancer back in 2004. I was only 16 at the time, so I had yet to really understand the devastation of what was happening. I think every woman that has breast cancer is a fighter, but my mom was a special case. Not only was she one of the hardest fighting women I have ever met, but she also kept the best spirits in her fight with cancer. My mom Arden never let anything stop her from doing what she wished. During her chemotherapy and the periods that she was in remission, she would be biking, running, or simply going to the gym. On top of being active and an incredible fighter, my mother was the most selfless person I have ever met. I was a freshman in high school when she was first diagnosed with breast cancer, so I just assumed that my mom would be completely fine. She held everything together her first time through chemo. It wasn't until she passed away and I read her journal that I learned how tough chemo was on her, as well as her mastectomy. No matter what she was going through, my brother and I always came first. My mother went into remission twice before her final battle with cancer. I never thought that my tough, active, caring, loving mother could ever be sick, let alone die. It wasn't until September 19, 2004, when I had to say goodbye to my mom (she died the next day) that I realized I was being naive in thinking my mom was invincible. I don't want anyone to have to go through what I did. I'm terrified that I one day will have children, and they'll have to see me sick. I never want my children to have to say goodbye to me, like I had to do with my mom. Funding research for breast cancer is important to me on many levels. Not only will it help millions of women and men, but it gives people like Ashley and I hope for when we grow up. This is something so near and dear to my heart, and any amount of money helps this cause.

I've were built with a fellow fisherman tell me how the bubblegum color in the the Powerbait and Gulp trout worms are incredible bait for steelhead (that's merely a rainbow trout that 'runs' towards the ocean or any other large body of water for any time period). " Well, I have spent the past twenty plus years fishing for and catching "rainbows" and in the period have learned a thing or two about trout bait. If you are looking for the best bait to work with when fishing for trout, the solution lies among the three baits listed above.

A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do believe that you need to write more about this issue, it may not be a taboo subject but typically people don't discuss such subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

I rarely leave a response, however i did some searching and wound up here CT Affiliate Susan G. Komen for the Cure. And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Could it be just me or does it look like some of these responses appear like left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other places, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Could you list of all of your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
