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.

El incentivo de un empleado para falsificar la huella para un reloj de fichar no es muy grande, singularmente cuando un engaño podría ser sencillamente detectado por la administración de personal y tener consecuencias laborales graves, aparte de implicaciones en cuanto a la legalidad.

I think that what you wrote was actually very logical. However, consider this, suppose you were to write a killer post title? I ain't suggesting your content isn't good, but what if you added something that grabbed people's attention? I mean CT Affiliate Susan G. Komen for the Cure is kinda plain. You could glance at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create article headlines to grab viewers interested. You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about everything've written. In my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.

Road cars, along with vintage race cars, make the field not seem so limited. The new technology takes the control of high beam out of the hand of the driver. Hobby-grade models are generally more expensive to get into with prices ranging from as low as $100 to well over $500, depending on the model.

Take into consideration games just before you consider the technique. Before you go out and spend hundreds of dollars on a gaming program, feel about what kind of games are available on every single technique. When lots of games have a version for every technique, there are nevertheless some games that are exclusive to an person technique. Decide on wisely.

Consequently, the makers have set up specialist programs in addition to repair facilities. The car market down under displays cars that not only differ in their feature but also the price range. Therefore, it will be a wise decision to invest in the new technology rather than relying upon the old technologies.
