Heather's 60k walk

Some of my friends have asked about my niece, Heather, who is going to be walking in the "Weekend to End Breast Cancer" in Vancouver... August 18-20/06. The picture you see of Heather and me was taken when she came to visit me in Winnipeg just after I had my port re-inserted and just before I started chemo again.

Heather recently had a birthday party for her 12th birthday and she had her friends bring donations for the "Walk" instead of presents for her. What a girl!!! I am a lucky aunt to have such wonderful nieces and nephews.

(The rest of my team is doing pretty well too... you will find them in Joanne's Team)

This is to Heather and all my walker friends: "Start by doing what is necessary, then what's possible, and suddenly, you are doing the impossible" St. Francis of Assisi

Round #3 Cisplatin + Gemzar, Day #3........ it's almost over, and tomorrow is another day!
