This was without doubt the pinkest weekend of my life. It was the peak of the pink month, at least for me. First it was the Komen MA Race for the Cure, and then the Nashua Harley Davidson Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Fashion Show and Live Auction benefit. It was an incredible show of support at both events. Every time I attend an event with the breast cancer community I am amazed at the positive, inviting, friendly vibe. And it was the same at the Harley event, too, where we felt as welcome as if we were one of the family, even though Vanessa, Kevin and I had never been there before. Thank you to Robin Dixon, who organized the incredible fundraiser – we can’t wait to go again next year, and plan to bring more family and friends! The walk was great, too. I was joined by my good friend Alicia, who conveniently lives just down the road from the park where the walk was held, and Linda, who just finished radiation – so it was a celebration of her completing treatment! While I hate being constantly reminded that I have breast cancer, I am very thankful for the heightened awareness and support, which is leading to more research and eventually, hopefully, a cure for all types.
