I have walked in the Little Rock, Arkansas Susan G. Komen Walk for the cure. http://www.the3day.org/site/PageServer?PageServer?pagename=homepage That was over whelming and emotionally for me! To look over the crowd of people as far as you can see. Many pass you with no hair, some so frail they can barely walk, but so many hundreds and hundreds there to walk for the cure because of that loved one they lost to cancer. I am a cancer survivor! I was diagnosed (13 years ago and still no sign of it coming back), with a malignant melanoma on the top center of my head. It was 2 cm in depth and the size of a silver dollar. After two biopsy’s, a surgery to do a brain sweep, skin graft off my thigh to use on my scalp, and over 100 stitches, I was finally told they got it all! Just hearing those words that you have cancer, no matter what the size, its devastating to hear. Your thoughts are about your family, your life, what now? You don’t know where that roads going to go and what’s at the end! I remember when I went back to the doctor to get the metal cap off they had sewed over my graft to protect my scull. When he said you won’t have to take the chemo, it looks like they had got it all! Wow, that feeling was that same feeling that overcame me when I walked that Susan B cancer walk. Looking above the crowd, knowing that those endless waves of people walking all around me were there for all the same reason. Cancer!
That's me on the far left
Walking for a small twenty dollar fee may not be doing much for a cause, be it cancer, leukemia, whatever the cause, but it gives me the feeling that I am just a speck of that cure that will one day be discovered. I am walking! I can walk! There are so many that can’t!
