Waiting for the other shoe(s) to step & Me
Posted October 25, 2009on:
In cancer treatment, you’re always waiting for the other shoe to drop. You go to your treatments always worried about something crashing your already shaky emotional equilibrium.
Shoes may have gotten a bad rap, as Maggie, her husband and friends demonstrated Saturday. These same folks who surprised Maggie with wonderful hats and scarves for me also participated in the first annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Kansas City. They did so in honor of “Pinky Pie and her family.”
Lots of other shoes stepped rather than dropped on me Saturday in my name. I’m very grateful and honored as I don’t now many of these women.
I’ve walked in such events before and after my diagnosis and they are wonderfully inspiring and fun – especially on a beautiful fall day.
Their Pinky Pie webpage for Making Strikes Against Breast cancer included:
Why are we walking?
Hope, Faith, Love…..to support all those affected by cancer/breast cancer…..
namely, Sue Hessel and family

Yes, they even made a pitch for my blog.
And they also, exceeded their fund raising goals.
Thanks to all you high stepping women and MIke. My goal is to walk with you next year.Waiting for the other shoe(s) to step & Me
