Another Reason to Walk for the Cure

On August 19th – 21st, I will be walking with thousands of other women and men in effort to raise money for the Susan G Komen Foundation and their search for a cure for breast cancer. You can read about my original reasons for walking here.

Unfortunately, I have now come across another reason to walk. As you may know, this past weekend, Jason Strate (blog|@StrateSQL) and I got married. We had about 140 friends and family celebrating with us. What we didn’t know, was that one of our guests was hiding a secret. She didn’t want us to worry about her during our Big Day. On Monday, Jason got a call from his Mom… his grandma has recently been diagnosed with colon and breast cancer. Because of her diabetes, we are unsure what her treatment options will be. Next week, Jason and I will be heading up to her house in Northern MN to spend a little time with her. Unfortunately, the day after our arrival, she will be heading down to Mayo Clinic to find out what options she has.

Rosie will be joining the list of those I am walking in honor of… the list seems to be growing way too fast. 😦
