I’m watching runners, women and men, young and old, Running (some are walking) for The Cure this morning. I’m thinking about the women I knew, patients and friends, who did not survive. I’m remembering that 12 years ago, I went through treatment, and it’s the luck of the draw that I am disease free. Thanks to Komen and other organizations that contribute to making treatment more effective, saving more lives.
