This past Sunday was the yearly American Cancer Breast Cancer walk on Long Island. The walk takes place out in Jones Beach.
Every year I walk the walk with Bobbieann, my friend, and neighbor. We both started walking every October for Breast Cancer the year after I was treated for the disease.
We left our homes at 7: 30 a.m., picked up Martha and Debbie,and drove south to Jones Beach. Martha and Debbie are friends, and neighbors, they are now part of our yearly Breast Cancer Walk. The crowd of people walking the walk is always impressive.
All the people who walk, men, women, children, dogs, young adults either know someone or lost someone to Breast Cancer. It could have been a mom, sister, aunt, cousin or friend of a friend. Cancer effects us all.
We all come together to give solidarity, and give support, to survivors. Survivors like me.
This is Martha, and her plastic surgeon, Dr Israeli, whom she loves dearly. See Martha is another survivor. It is important that when you are diagnosed with this disease you find a doctor who you can connect with. And Martha found it with Dr. Israeli. Check out Martha and Debbie. Walking with determination. With a YES we can attitude.
