post 6th Annual 5K thoughts

How do you describe, in words, what yesterday was all about? For the last six years I have failed to find the right words to capture the sights, sounds and the emotions of the 5K. I think in the end it’s because words can’t define our 5K event. You can only FEEL yesterday! Our 5K has grown incredibly in the last six years not just in number of participants, but in the amount of support and hope and love this community has for those of our loved ones and friends who have heard those words, “You have breast cancer!” For me personally, there were so many moments that I felt my own mother, who lost her fight to metastatic breast cancer in 1972 at the age of 55, right by my side. I can only believe that that was true for so many people yesterday. For our breast cancer survivors, our HEROES, who came to participate despite the fact that some were in active treatment, YOU INSPIRE US! Nothing deters you! If anything you were more determined to show breast cancer that it was not in charge of your life. We had 128 breast cancer survivors with us yesterday. So many came up to me to share what yesterday meant to them. One woman said, “This is the best medicine for me to beat my breast cancer! I know I can fight this and win because I see so many people here supporting me in the fight!” For each of us the 5K means something different BUT one thing is the SAME…We FIGHT together and we WIN together! Please...

Sometimes I have to pinch myself

Sometimes I have to pinch myself and ask is this real? The support that you give, that this community gives, (and by community I mean the community of hope, the community of giving) overwhelms me! So many organizations, so many individuals support us in the fight against breast cancer. Just recently Seymour United Methodist Church had a fundraiser and donated profits to us. We received a check for $600 from them! Is that not amazing! I just recently found out that Chase School in Waterbury Ct. is planning to have a Pink day and has chosen Seymour Pink as the recipient of the monies they raise! Options Hair salon in Shelton Connecticut is doing a fundraiser for us…they are doing pink extensions or pink died streaks for the month of October and the monies raised will come to us! The high school sport teams; boys soccer, girls softball, girls swim, girls volleyball and Seymour Pop Warner continue to support us each year by having Pink games for us. These are just a few of the businesses, organizations and individuals who believe in the fight and who continue to support us. Please know that with your support, with your encouragement with your energies, Seymour Pink continues to fund research, fund education and financially assist those victimized by the breast cancer diagnosis. Perhaps you saw on Facebook just recently we were able to donate $25,000 to Smilow for a program of treatment that will help women combat hair loss during chemo therapy treatments! At this past September board meeting. we voted to grant $14,000 in financial assistance to those applying during...
