I have two friends who have organized teams for the Run for the Cure this weekend. As far as I know, they haven’t met each other before, but they have a lot in common. First, they are smart, strong, beautiful women. Second they were both diagnosed with breast cancer at a stupidly early age. I would like to introduce all of you to them, and also to introduce them to each other if they have not already met.
Laurie also writes one of my favourite blogs here.
If I were running this weekend, I would want to be on both of their teams.
Laurie’s No Pink for Profit will be participating for the second time together, and last year I was honoured to run with them.
Melanie has put together Twin Peaks (ha!) for the first year.
Please consider donating this weekend.
Update: Laurie is in today’s Ottawa Citizen, being wonderful! Please check out http://www.ottawacitizen.com/health/Pink+fatigue/5486390/story.html
