cancer you can suck it

every year in june i join with family and friends to do the "shore walk" to raise funds for cancer research at fred hutchinson cancer center.

this year my friend beth and i are going to co-captain the team -- and of course, we had to come up with a good name.

so our team name is "cancer you can suck it".

awesome name, right? right. we decided that name over ciders the night that the generous stranger picked up our dinner tab.

the event has options for runners and walkers - beth and i are going to walk the 5k. i am so glad that beth can do the walk again this year as last year she was not able to because she was busy kicking cancer's ass.

so if you would like to join us for this event, sign up. if you would like to donate to our team, you can do that as well.

information to register is available on the website: http://shorerun.com/ - make sure that you sign up as part of the team.

information to donate is on our team fundraising page: https://secure.getmeregistered.com/homepage.php?id=9094

i think about that post last night and how tired i am of so many things related to cancer.

but even when i am tired - and angry - i don't quit. i never quit.

neither does beth.

so we will walk this year, raise funds for research that will help cancer patients, and be thankful that we are both here to do it again this year.

i will never get tired of walking until there is a cure.

thanks for your help in getting us one step closer to that goal that i believe will someday be reached.

i hope with everything i have that i am here to see it.

i hope that you are too.
