October Thoughts

b2ap3_thumbnail_2015-10-13-12.01.57_resized.jpgOctober is the month that my thoughts are drawn to expecting cooler weather and expecting seasonal change. Because I live in a very warm climate, cooler weather means getting outside and walking more.  Then my memories go back to 2008 and the year my close cousin told me she had just discovered she had breast cancer. That was the year I got the sudden impulse to sign up for the three day Breast Cancer walk in a nearby city.  I remember thinking that there was no way I could ever raise the $2,200 to actually qualify for the walk.  I remember the shock and surprise when people began to donate and help.  I remember the new friends I met as I trained for months prior to the walk.  And I remember the field full of tents where we camped, the blisters, the crowds along the way, the final ceremony in the rain.

All of this was nothing compared to the memories my cousin had of her struggle through diagnosis, treatment and recovery.  Do you have someone that the subject of breast cancer brings to your mind? Perhaps it is you?  October is awareness month and I have become aware of the television commercials about the fight against cancer.  So many people are affected by this disease that it is almost a universal fight, drawing people to lend their support to research, and to the encouragement of our survivors.  

Apple Awards is a supporter of breast cancer research, having developed the pink crystal apple award.  A percentage of proceeds from sales of the pink apple are donated to the cause.  Do you know a donor, a fund raiser, a survivor who deserves to be rewarded for their efforts?  Check the website for this beautiful piece of crystal as a lasting memorial for those October memories....  I haven't done a walk like this since.
