I am really excited the Susan G Komen walk is in two more days. It seems like only yesterday that it was spring 2003 and my sister Patty was fighting for life !!! In two days we will all join together to raise awareness of breast cancer. Pambra's has a team of women who signed up. Together we have a pistachio green shirt for Team Pambra's "Peeps for a cure". I gave my shirt away to someone already. So I will wear the Komen white and pink shirt. The team Pambra's shirt has four names on it from our family alone. We love you Patty, Aunt Nora, Great Aunt Mary, Cousin Linda (the only survivor of the group). If I can't do anything else for our lost love ones.. I can at least raise funds to help other women get help.

Our Local Susan G Komen-Ozark affiliate serves 8 counties in the state of Arkansas, over 16,000 people joined the walk last year and an even higher number is expected for this year. Knowing that $750.000 was raised and given out to 13 health agency's is exciting. To be a part of something bigger and to help provide education, funding for treatments and actual surgeries, if needed, is such an honor for Pambra's.

With 16,000 cards in hand we will start our day off at 6 am. Many hours of work went into this day. Thank You to the ladies at the Susan G Komen-Ozark office for their hard work. Also a big Thank You to all our team who joined us in the fight!!!
