She would have been 76 today.
She should have still been here to celebrate, but cancer took her 12 years ago.
So in her memory, I will be walking in Relay Life - the annual fund raiser for the American Cancer Society.
Please come and join me if you're in the area. I'll be there the entire time - camped out in the Redwood City Team camp. I'll probably be walking off and on during the day - but I definitely will be walking during one or more of the late night shifts.
The Luminaria Ceremony is at dusk - hundreds of luminarias will be lit and will continue to glow all night long. Every year, as I read all the messages on the luminarias - happy & sad - I remember all the people I've lost to cancer - and those who are still fighting it.
