Making Strides

        If you are just stopping in, this is the twenty fourth post in my 31 Day Series:  I Wear Pink.  I was diagnosed with breast cancer on February 18, 2009.   This series is about my journey with breast cancer.  You can find the previous posts here.

Day 24:  Making Strides

     The journey to end breast cancer begins with a single step.  On Sunday, Patty and I joined more than 7,500 walkers with Making Strides for Breast Cancer at Woodbury Commons, NY sponsored by the American Cancer Society.
          I get tears in my eyes whenever I walk at one of these events.  It is an emotional and inspiring experience.  Pink is everywhere.
     Men, women, children, and pets, everyone walking united in purpose.  
Everyone caring about making the future a brighter place.
The newly diagnosed and the survivors.  Both beautiful.
 Walking in honor of friends and family.
Hoping to see a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays.
Is it just me, or do our glasses match?

Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:28-31
