I bet you can guess what we did on Saturday. Every year St. Louis holds the annual Komen Race for the Cure in June and my family and I always participate in it. We started this tradition in 2005 and have done it ever since. Long before Maw Maw was ever diagnosed with breast cancer we were dedicated to this cause and now even more so. As the years have gone on, the race has become the largest Komen race in the country!!! Go St. Louis. There are absolutely no words to describe how beyond amazing the experience is. Young, old, men, women, survivors, and supporters...the streets are packed. Most every person is in a great mood and while you're in a hustle and bustle with 65, 000 other people it still just feels welcoming and right. It's a great chance to see the positive in mankind that day and you can't help but get
We started out extra early this year so Maw Maw and Aunt Norma could participate in the survivor processional. This meant we had to be on the metro at 6:30 a.m.!
Once we got there, Maw Maw and Aunt Norma walked in the processional for the first time with the hundreds of other survivors. Talk about emotional! What a sight to see.
To those we've lost, may your memory live on.
