Sometimes we all need a little boost and some hope. Yesterday was an important day for a friend. She finished her last round of chemotherapy for breast cancer. This was after multiple surgeries and treatment over the course of the last twelve plus months. How appropriate that she finished her treatment this month, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
She has definitely has been an inspiration to me (I battled ovarian cancer almost five years ago) and to many, many others. Her strength, humor, and determination show what an individual can do when faced with adversity.
On Saturday, she will be walking in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, which is being held in Hunt Valley, Maryland. I made this Pink Hope Scarf to help keep her neck warm in the chilly early morning weather (and of course to add a little extra pink). I’ll be cheering her and all the other walkers (and runners) on and hope you will too!
