In my last post I mentioned that City Boy’s children had lost their mother to cancer, and they have been supporters of the Susan Koman Walk For the Cure since before that. Today it had a special meaning when Frank’s youngest daughter Becca and middle daughter Melissa brought their daughters to this year’s Walk.
Here is Precious Baby getting a bite before the Walk, complete with her Walk For the Cure outfit and headband.
Melissa and her daughter Cutie Girl donned matching Fight Like a Girl shirts.
Before their mother Pam passed away, she and the girls attended every cancer walk they could. Even when Pam could barely stand, she would attend the walks.
I urge anyone out there who has a loved one with cancer, or a loved one who has died from it, to consider attending walks such as this in support of the people who are helping raise money to fund the fight for a cure. Moral support and prayers go a long way toward cheering the walkers on, and it’s a great family activity to promote awareness.
Here’s hoping the weather holds out for the walkers this weekend! May they and all of you have a blessed day!
