Making Strides Against Cancer Walk


This weekend has been an amazing weekend!  Holly and I have been wanting to celebrate being done with cancer in a big way with our friends and family who have been so supportive; and Saturday was the day.  Holly and I got the Pearson Springs pavilion and had little shindig complete with BBQ and more desserts then you could shake a stick at.  I never got an actual count of how many people showed up, but it was a really good turnout despite the cold.  Being able to have fun and say thanks to everyone was just awesome and was a great way to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Speaking of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, today was the American Cancer Society’s first Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk here in Knoxville, and Holly and I attended.  The event had a really good turnout and it was fun to run into some of the healthcare workers that we’ve gotten to know over the last year and a half as well as some friends we’ve made.  One of those friends who Holly has met through all this ‘cancer stuff’ is Ashley Roback.  Ashley got to share her story (which you can read here) to all the walk attendees and really did a great job.  She has been such an inspiration to Holly and I’m sure many others. This week’s picture of the week is her giving her speech.
