Request for donations

I hope no one is offended by this post but I'd blogged recently about registering for the Beast Cancer 3 day to raise awareness and money for breast cancer research.

In that post I did not say why this was an important event for me. I lost my Aunt last spring to breast cancer and 2 of my sisters have struggled with this disease. I'm ready to help fund research to eliminate breast cancer before any more of my family is affected.

I'll be walking in memory of my Aunt Lillian and would appreciate the support of anyone who has had to face this struggle in their own family.

Since training for the 3 day - 60 mile walk is going to be such a big part of my life over the next few months I will be blogging about my progress and posting the link for donations. This link is also posted in my sidebar.

To make a contribution please follow this link:
Atlanta 3 Day Breast Cancer Walk - Mary Johnson

For questions or comments feel free to email me directly.

I'm well ahead of the suggested training schedule for the 3 day event so I'm feeling good about my miles logged.

Miles walked last week = 33
Miles walked this week = 34

I am happy to support you Mary. I lost my mom to cancer and my aunt is currently doing her second battle with it. I will be in touch.

That is wonderful what you are doing. So many people have been touched some way or another by cancer. My prayers are with you.

I'm not offended, Mary but the dentist has got to quit taking my extra incidental expense money. When do you need to have this turned in--perhaps with a couple months leeway I could participate?
It is for a good cause. Many, many families have been touched by cancer of one sort or another.
