I haven't done a lot of asking this year. I know money's tight - but if you can spare it, it's a hell of a cause. I have 11 days before I walk. My link page is here: http://www.avonwalk.org/goto/rivka


I can't do life saving research and find a cure. I can't physically provide a mamogram, I can't donate thousands of dollars. I can walk. I can talk to my friends, my people and ask for a few bucks.

Breast cancer touches so many people - my aunt Susan, newly a survivor, friends of my friend. Breast cancer sucks. Breast cancer is a man who's done dozens of walks with his wife who now walks with her shoes on his belt because he wants her there in spirit after the cancer killed her. Breast cancer is friends having to hold a wake on the day of closing cermonies two years ago. Breast cancer is my aunt Susan being told that after defeating melanoma years ago, she has cancer again.

There are three large pink ribbons on the wall of my office. Each one is from one of my walks. Every three minutes they are handed out during the walk. Each one represents another person whose life is altered by hearing four words "you have breast cancer."

If you can't afford to donate, please don't, but please do come out and cheer. Watch this space for where the cheering locations are.
