Team Zsa Zsa 2008!

Wow! Our friends and family are AMAZING! Thank you 1,000 times, and it's still not enough, to those of you who came and walked, donated, prayed for us and have loved us. We had 49 1/2 (Baby Kate gets to be the 1/2) people walk!! I am in awe! We (YOU!) raised $1,500 on top of walking entry fees for the Susan G. Komen foundation. Thank you is never enough.

As most of you know, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in September of 2005 and had a long road to recovery with a double mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. We started Team Zsa Zsa in 2005 and this was our 4th year to walk. The thing is, we walk with the name Team Zsa Zsa in honor of mom, but there are so many others that we celebrate. I walked alongside my friends Lauren and Allison whose mothers have also battled BC and are survivors. I walked alongside my friend Meredith whose grandmother is a survivor. The list goes on and on and we celebrate all of the men and women who have battled this disease. Because we walk and because you donate and pray, I pray there will one day be a cure.
You'll notice in the pictures below that we had 2 very special surprise walkers....Taylor and Kristen SHOCKED mom and came into town to walk with us. It was so wonderful and fun to have them here. :)

I didn't know that your sals and Taylor coming into town was a surprise! That's awesome! And I didn't realize we had 50 people! I thought we had 40. That's great.
