Cancer has touched too many of our lives
through family members, friends, or even our own selves.
My sister, Leah and I, watched from a far our mother's fight with breast cancer.
We heard her frustration, her days of ups and downs,
her loss of appetite,
the loss of her hair, her loss of energy, and
her loss of will to keep fighting.
Whatever it was that kept her going -
we are thankful for the strength that she demonstrated.
Now we say, We know what strength is, it is our "Mom".
This event is all about the celebration of life.
It's to recognize the "strength" that women have humbly displayed during challenges of life.
This event is meant to celebrate the life,
we as women,
have been given,
but most of all to lift our spirits from times
of loss or hardship
and to heal, or to find comfort, or to rejuvenate our bodies
emotionally, mentally, and spiritually
with our soles.
