I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to this event this year! in Feb. I received my own diagnosis. I'm still going through treatments, and will be through the end of the year and perhaps longer. I have a rare and agressive form of breast cancer, so this challenge, which was always important to me (not to mention tons of fun!), has taken on even greater importance.

almost all of my extra cards I have been placing in a box I've made for the center where I take my chemo treatments. you can't even begin to know the joy the other patients experience as they go through the box to take whatever cards they are needing. several other people have also sent cards for this box. every bit of beauty helps to brighten a day in some form or fashion. when going through this journey, you learn to look for and appreciate every act of kindness and every glimpse of beauty you see.

thank you to everyone who sends even one card to MD Anderson. you are touching lives, truly!

now bring on those challenges! Pink rocks!
{Hugs} to you, Jennifer. Stories like yours make the reason for these challenges more "real" to some of the SCS community. I hope that every new day finds you feeling better and stronger than the day before.

I love your "location" under your screenname. That's a great attitude to have!
