Race for the Cure

One of the (many) intriguing things about living in the DC area is that when you look over and say, hey, that looks like (fill in the blank with famous name) it may well be them. John and I admit to being resident tourists, even after five years here. Saturday morning is a fine example, as I looked through my camera and there were Secretary of State Condi Rice and Sex and the City star Cynthia NIxon, both speaking at the Komen Race for the Cure on Saturday morning.

In September, my sister Mary Ellen and I will celebrate seven years since being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001. We fully realize that without all the research, our prognosis may have been very different. Naturally, Komen for the Cure has become a favorite cause.

I do volunteer photography for the National Race from a survivor standpoint. Walking in with thousands of women in pink is a most inspiring moment. These are some amazing women to work with and I enjoy every event. I will be doing a special event for Komen this summer. More to follow on that.

Meanwhile, ladies, get your mammograms!!! They can save your life. As another breast cancer survivor told me years ago, finding out you have breast cancer is not the worst thing that can happen to you. The worst thing is having breast cancer and NOT finding out.
