It’s that time of year again. Yes, everything goes Pink!! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Since meeting Mr. Phat in 2006, the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk has become a cause that I have embraced. This is my 6th year walking in the event and it’s Mr. Phat’s 20th time. His first walk was 1993 with his wife who was fighting breast cancer. She passed away 10 months later, but Mr. Phat has continued to support the cause with help from his daughter and friends and family from all over.
We go to a number of events over the course of the year for the local American Cancer Society and it’s always funny because Mr. Phat is always the sole male “Pacesetter” which always makes me smile and love him more for doing this.
I couldn’t be prouder of him for continuing to participate. Perhaps many in his shoes might have lost their enthusiasm for the cause, but he continues to participate each year and wouldn’t think of missing it. It’s one of those events that just makes you feel damn good when you do it!!! This year we’re walking in honor of our grandson Landon. Because that’s what this is all about – raising funds to help research so that there will be more birthdays. The link to my page is below in case you would like to participate as well!!
