Breast Cancer Walk

Dear Friends and Family,
As you probably already know I have decided to participate in Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. This is such an important cause to me because this year, an estimated 40,000 women will die from the disease. Breast cancer takes another life every 14 minutes. Another woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every 3 minutes. An estimated three million women are living with breast cancer. One million of them don't yet know it. As part of the event, I pledged to raise money. People can make donations on my behalf, so that I can reach my fundraising goal. With the donations raised, the Avon Foundation will provide support and resources for women affected by this terrible disease. This will help so many people in our own community and throughout the country. Any amount you can give is great; I just appreciate your support. It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause - you can make a donation online by simply clicking on the link at the bottom of this message. Whatever you can give will help! I truly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.Thank you for supporting me always, but especially in this challenge; you really do make a difference.

Big scare

Well, quite a few of you know about my recent scary experience. I was going down the stairs to our basement and my foot slipped and I tumbled down the stairs and CRASHED into the cement wall. I almost blacked out. Chris took me to the ER - 4.5 hrs, an X-ray and CT scan later they determined that I just had a concussion and cervical neck strain. Thank God! Since I work on a Trauma ICU my mind was immediately thinking the worst....subdural hematoma, etc. So glad it wasn't. I'm still a bit sore, but was able to work yesterday and today.
