Tripp thinking.....





I found her, well, she found me!

I have been trying to find an old friend for decades, her name is Morag MacDougall. Out of the clear blue I get a friend request on facebook from a Morag MacDougall and after accepting her and doing a chat, it was my friend Morag! Can't tell you how excited I am to finally be in touch with her!

I went to my Onc yesterday....


and I must admit his diagnosis of “You are still cured” didn’t make me feel any better. I know the Drs say cancer is a chronic disease and I have always known that once a person gets cancer they usually get it again it is usually worse the second time. Until I joined “Beyond Boobs” my support group I had never met anyone who had survived the 2nd go round.
This came after a weekend of riding the Grand Funk Railroad. sigh.

Why I am Making Strides

Because I know I will make a difference in the fight to end breast cancer. I know that by raising funds and walking in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event, I will help save lives from breast cancer. 

I believe that one day breast cancer will never steal another year from anyone's life. Making Strides is not only my opportunity to join my community to fight back against breast cancer, but it is also a way to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the disease. That's why I'm walking. 


Who I am Making Strides For

My reason for walking in the Making Strides event is personal – just like every other walker’s story. We all walk because we’ve been affected by breast cancer in some way, and because the Making Strides event gives us the power to make a difference and fight back. This is my opportunity to honor breast cancer survivors, remember people we have lost, and help raise funds for groundbreaking research, information and services for people fighting breast cancer, and mammograms for women who need them.


Why I Support the American Cancer Society

Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early when it is easiest to treat. Today 1 of every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to them for help and support. They provide free information and services when and where women need it throughout their journey to get well. They are investing in groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat, and cure breast cancer, and are working to ensure access to mammograms for women who need them. 

I have signed up to walk and fundraise with Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. I hope you will consider joining my team and/or making a donation in support of my efforts. 

Together, we can make strides to end breast cancer!
