The Walking and Constantly

First off, I apologize for the delay in getting this message out - it's been a very busy week.

More importantly, thank you all so very much for the tremendous support you gave me in doing The Breast Cancer 3-day walk! I can't tell you how much it meant especially to me, but to millions of others as well. Here's hoping that all of our efforts have moved us one step closer to finding a cure, better yet a preventative, for breast cancer.

The 60 mile walk was, in a word, amazing. I've never had an experience like it in my life. To see as something tangible the love and dedication that so many people put toward the cause was humbling. It was, as promised, a sea of pink. I've never much liked the color pink, but I've got to tell you, I have a whole new respect for it!

For me the walk itself was grueling, both physically and emotionally. I don't know when I've ever felt so completely exhausted in body and soul at the same time, yet so utterly satisfied. We walked, we cried, we laughed, we encouraged each other in every way, we sang, we held hands, we shared, we hugged - we were all friends who simply hadn't met before. The long and short of it is this - I accomplished what I set out to do and there is no way I could have done it without all of your help, financially, spiritually and emotionally. The encouragement I received along the way from all of you was impressive and only added to my determination.

There is much more I can say and so many stories I could share. But for the sake of brevity, I will merely say again a very heartfelt thank you. Together we have made a difference.

Let's do it again next year, shall we?
