   Everyone I know gets affected some way or another because I have Cancer. The “How are yous” change, worry is constant and everyone close to me has Googled Cancer. It's like when you have food stuck in your teeth. Everyone notices it, it's all they can think about when they are talking to you, but nobody wants to mention it, it just lingers there like the elephant in the room.

   I am still the same me only my obstacles in life have gotten slightly larger. If anything I have become a better me. I have learned how to have faith in myself and others. I have found my FAITH, Period. I hug my kids tighter at night. I exhaust the words I love you to my husband. I am more greatfull then ever for the people I have in my life. My friendships with old friends have grown stronger and I am a lot more open to new ones.

   The fact that your reading this means that your a part of my life in some way. I want you to know, I want everyone to know how much I appreciate the thoughts, the fears, the wells wishes. I want having Cancer to mean something positive to the people I know. I want it challenge us all. I want it to set a tone for our lives that no one should go at this alone. That it shouldn't be a personal journey but more of a community journey. A journey we all share in.

   Cancer wants to test my body. It wants to test my limits. Its dying for me to break. I WONT!! I am going to push my body and set new limits! Starting by training. Everyday I want to push my limits and just when I think I have reached my limit. I am going to keep moving. I am going to move 60K and show Cancer that I set my limits. I decide what will break me. I can do it. Because I have had support from people who care about me. People like you taking the time out of your busy lives to read this.

    As strong as I like to think us woman are. Cancer is still winning. It will continue to break woman and it will continue to test our limits. Until we find a cure and break it back. Every dollar, every cent helps. Please help me in finding Cancer's limit. I plan to walk with thousands others who are determind to find Cancer's limit. Any amount is appreciated and could be the amount that puts Cancer in its place. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
