In a little less than two weeks I'll be running in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. That number is startling to me. I'm sure most of us know someone who has been diagnosed whether it is a family member, close friend or acquaintance.
Until a few years ago, when people talked about loved ones getting cancer, or having personal tragedies occur, I would always think to myself, "That'll never happen to me." Although I don't know what it's like to be diagnosed with breast cancer, I now realize what an ignorant way of thinking that was and God has shown me a different perspective through other areas of my life. Now instead of thinking, "Why me?" I realize I should be thinking "Why NOT me?" Who am I to think I'm different and above such unfortunate events in my life? Cancer shows no favoritism.
I want to give anyone who would like to a chance to donate and help raise money for breast cancer research. CLICK HERE to go to my personal race page and there's a link to make a donation.
