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.

A NOTE FROM KELSEY:

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.

Linda's Walk for Hope 2011

A big thank you to all my family and friends who made last year's walk a huge success. The goal was $500 and we raised OVER $1,000!!! Your support of this cause was overwhelming!

The Super GT has also been seen at The Strip in Las Venturas. And while the MR2 can be a bit difficult with stock tires - grip can break suddenly if you push the car to hard - simply putting upgraded to sport tires makes the car hang on to bends as if velcroed to the track. Everyone who has ever owned a car will understand what a huge relief that would be in terms of car maintenance.
