Now, why would I choose a fundraiser like this? Well, if you know me, you know I would not be caught dead in public in anything resembling a bra for any reason whatsoever. However, breast cancer strikes a sore spot with me. My best friend, Marilyn Lane, died of breast cancer at the very young age of 36, just a few weeks shy of her 37th birthday. My oldest daughter is named after her (Rose is their middle name), and I was pregnant with my second daughter when she died. Words cannot describe the disappointment I feel when I think of how much my girls have missed in not knowing her. She was a special person. And that’s the understatement of the century.
So, I signed up to promote this fundraiser, even though I cannot participate personally. Perhaps you can walk The MoonWalk. If you do, let me know. I’ll cheer you on. Or maybe you could walk in a local event supporting breast cancer research. I plan to find something local to do, but since we’re in a new area it might not pan out right away. I wish I could do the MoonWalk. It sounds like something Marilyn would have liked. Now, she would totally have put on a bra with flashing lights and proudly walked right down the middle of the street. Did I say that she was the most fun ever? I sure miss her laugh.
By promoting The MoonWalk 2013, I am eligible to win a $50 gift card or an Amazon ecertificate. I’m not holding my breath, but I wanted you to know.
