Happy 81st Birthday Mom!!!
I can't believe that Relay is just a month away. Where does the time go? I've been on a project from h*ll at work for the past 9 months and it's Relay again.
The on going theme for Relay has been "More Birthdays". This makes the 17th birthday that I haven't been able to celebrate with Mom. Thankfully, I intend to celebrate K's birthday with her for a very long time. Thank goodness that K had that mammogram in 2010.
So in Mom's memory and in honor of K, I will be walking in Relay For Life - the annual fund raiser for the American Cancer Society.
Team Redwood City and Teen Advisory will be selling snow cones. We'll all be walking at some point over the 24 hours of the relay. Please come and join us! (I'll be there the entire 24 hours, joined by my sisters and kidlets) The Luminaria Ceremony is at dusk - hundreds of luminarias will be lit and will continue to glow all night long. Every year, 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.
American Cancer Society – Relay for Life
