It has been a little over 5 years since my sister Arlene lost her 25 year battle with breast cancer. Anyone who came in contact with my sister was better off as she was warm, engaging, cute, adorable, full of life, and one of the most caring people I have ever known. And, she was a fighter! No matter the situation, she fought the good fight and survived her metastatic breast cancer for years and pleasantly surprised many of her doctors and friends and family.
So, I am a little late to this party, but that does not mean that we will not surpass our goal of $5,000 for this year. I am very aware that you get requests from so many different and well-deserving causes, so I truly understand if you are unable to contribute. However, if you can provide a little support in your own way, Arlene always told me that the Komen organization was instrumental in paying for many of her treatments that may not have been covered by insurance. So, on that note, do what you can and most importantly, take care of your friends and family and give someone a hug today and everyday and we all need one!
All my love,
