October Guest Speaker

Sorry for the last minute notice about this months guest speaker. We had planned on talking about Raw Food Diets this month but our speaker had her baby early and will not be available until next year. Thank you to Melissa Taylor who has stepped up at the last minute to fill in. Melissa and her friend Lana will be talking with us about how we can use essential oils to help us regain our health after we have finished treatment. I hope to see you all there.

Koman Survivor Lunch

Last week several of our sisters attended the annual Susan G. Koman Survivor Lunch. It was a lot of fun. A few of us that arrived early were able to sit together and even have this fun picture together. After everything was over we ended up finding a few more of our sisters that were scattered around the room. Next year we need to plan ahead so that we are able to all sit together. I think we could fill up several tables by each other.

The food was great and the speakers were uplifting. Brook Walker from Studio 5 even mentioned our group. She met some of our girls about 3 years ago (before my time). Her entire speech was about how we are all sisters fighting this disease together. The rest of the speakers tied their presentations into the whole sisterhood thing. In many ways I feel even closer to the women in our group than I do to my own 3 sisters. There are so many things that I can share (or show in some cases cases) with you and things that you all understand that my biological sisters will hopefully never understand. This is one experience that I never want to share with them. Thank you all for being my sisters. I know that my life would be very different without you.
If anyone did not get a copy of the group picture I have 4 additional copies. I also have the individual shots for Mary Mower, Melissa Taylor, Kathy Hart, and Kristen (in green shirt she hasn't joined the group yet.) Let me know if you want your pictures.
