My mom is a breast cancer survivor, one of the very best friends a daughter could have, and my hero. In October 1998, I heard some of the scariest words my mom has ever said to me, "they found a lump and it's cancer." I'll never forget that moment. She survived with humor and grace. She is one of the strongest people I know. Thank God.
On top of being a great mom, she is also a fantastic grandmother. Every year, my sons and I make a pilgrammage with her and my dad (and 25,000 other people!) to Cal Expo in Sacramento on the day before Mother's Day to take part in the Race for the Cure. We proudly celebrate my mom's survival. This LO shows the race pictures for 2011. I've lost a couple good friends to breast cancer. I always race in memory of those wonderful ladies too.
The lay-out also has been entered into Crop Chocolate (CC) Challenge 22, Pastels and Bling. The challenge is to use pastels combined with dark bold colors and a bit of bling thrown in for good measure. This is a perfect challenge for the Race LO.
