You know I'm a two-time survivor. Well, tomorrow begins the Avon 2-Day Walk. I'm so looking forward to it. My dear friend Heather is doing it with me; it's her first time, and I have told her repeatedly to bring tissues.
I did the Walk in San Francisco back in 2000, the year I was first diagnosed with breast cancer. It wasn't that difficult, but I was 13 years younger than I am now. I also didn't have Parkinson's Disease. This is going to be a challenge -- almost 20 miles a day -- but I can do it. What a warm up for Everest! I've packed enough pain medicine for a horse, tons of moleskin and blister remedies, and a gallon of sunscreen.
SO many women. Here are a few I know, and for whom I'm walking.
More photos to follow. They should be great -- we're in Washington, D.C.
and the Walk begins and ends at the Washington Monument. Stay tuned!
