My Reason for Walking in Tulsa’s Komen Race for the Cure

Breast cancer awareness is a cause near and dear to my heart. I was asked to be on the board for Tulsa’s Komen affiliate earlier this year. I readily accepted because of my passion for finding a cure. I’m not a scientist so my involvement is nothing like those who choose to dedicate their time to the process of researching and identifying treatments for breast cancer patients. Instead, I’m using my communication skills to help educate women (and men) on the importance of early detection, treatment and regular follow-up. You can read more about my breast cancer story here.

I’m asking for your help too. Please consider donating $10 to help me reach my personal goal of $250 as I walk in this year’s Race for the Cure. $10 is lunch one day. $10 is a couple of cups of Starbucks coffee. $10 can go a long way toward research grants or educating an under-served population about the importance of self-exams, regular check-ups and so much more. Please click on this link to donate as little or as much as you would like. I truly appreciate your help!

I Love This Town

My husband and I purchased a new lens for our digital SLR. It was a such great day in Tulsa that we drove around testing it and admiring our fantastic, beautiful city. All the photos can be found on my Flickr stream, but here are a few examples:
