This morning under cloudy skies, three friends and I stepped out in the American Cancer Society's 19th Annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Boston. This was our third time walking in the event since my diagnosis in 2007. As you can see, my friend Maribeth is also a survivor and we both proudly wore the sashes provided to us. Such a lovely word, survivor, and there were many, many of us there today.
We added the pink boas which molted as we walked and the mardi gras beads for a festive touch. Part of the fun each year is to see what various teams are wearing. There were even some dogs sporting pink bandanas.

Our friend Liz had also intended to walk with us, but she was unable to do so this morning. Here are my teammates enjoying a few moments of rest after the walk.
Through the generosity of our friends and families, our team, the Wednesday Night Quilters, as of this morning had raised $1,163. Isn't that wonderful!!! There is still time to make a donation should you wish to do so by simply going to Wednesday Night Quilters Team Page.
