Susan G. Koman Walk

Yesterday was the Susan G. Koman walk and the girls and I were able to go walking with over 6000 other walker/runners (not counting all the kids, people on the sidelines, and vendors)!!! It was almost overwhelming, brought a couple tears to my eyes on and off throughout the afternoon. Jon and I have a friend Amy Piazza who is breast cancer survivor and has a team CODE PINK who we walked with! I also have a friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 25 and is a mother of 2 beautiful girls and is currently in the hospital fighting for her life. So this walk was extra special this year to be able to help show our support to them and all the other woman fighting this beast! It was a beautiful day!!!
