We did it! Despite rain that could best be described as torrential at times, the Littlest Brewster and I took a stand against lung cancer today.
We were joined by Kristen, one of my bestest friends in the whole wide world, two of her adorable boys, and an awful lot of very wet people. Seriously – the turn out was amazing, despite the weather. I tried to include some pictures of the crowd so you can see the incredible people who came today to join in the fight against lung cancer.
I had some of my patients and coworkers fill out “In Memory Of” and “In Honor Of” placards to hang on the stroller in addition to the one for my mom. The stroller was pretty awesome, even if the signs turned into runny, pulpy messes within a few minutes. I carried them all in my heart, paper or no.
On a totally inspirational note, there was a woman in a teal survivor’s shirt who had to be 70 if she was a day – and she kicked our asses. Ran the whole way. It was incredible to see how many teal survivor shirts were there. And with your support, every year there can be more.
And one day, we will kick lung cancer’s ass and we will ALL be free to breathe.
