Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

Today was the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in San Diego.  Patty had registered herself and I on the website and planned to attend.  However, after the turn of events the last couple of days, plus Patty was is pretty fatigued today, we felt it best to stay home.  My daughter, Kristi, and her friend were going to meet us there as well as Patty’s sister, Dottie.  A few friends from work were also going.  They all went to represent  and support Patty. 

We watched part of the event on TV which was pretty moving.  There were over 18,000 people in attendance which is an incredible turnout!  Patty’s sister Dottie was funny… she emailed us pictures to us as the event progressed.  It was almost like we were there! 

This is the first email she sent:


Everyone was invited!

Pink was definitely the theme!

Pink everywhere!


The race started.

They’re going through Balboa Park.

Encouragement along the way!

Big hill at the end… looks like a lot of people are getting tired!

They finished!!!

We’re sorry we didn’t make it today as it was an event we’d planned for months!  But the :Adventures in Chemo”  had other plans.  Patty is wearing her “Race” shirt today!  It’s a “survivor” shirt!

We’ve already decided we’re doing it next year!  Patty says she’s going to run it!  Me… we’ll see.

  1. Hey, just wanted to say Hi, haven’t had a chance to write, but have been following your blog. Patty, you are a “real trooper” (I think you use to use that word alot) and an inspiration. You are in my daily prayers and I hope all goes well. My sister-in-law was diagnosed over 16 years ago, had a double masectomy (sp) and is doing wonderful. If you believe and have hope as you and Ed do, I truly believe God will be there to hold your hand and get your through. Know my thoughts and prayers are with you. Ed, are you going to make Patty your famous Turkey for thanksgiving?? Take Care, Donna

  2. Hey Patty –

    It was good to talk to you the other day. I hope you are healing up from your fall – I hope Ed is healing too. Just remember your are doing all this so that the icky, nasty, ucky cancer never comes back. One day you’ll be telling your grandkids about the “chemo” treatments and hopefully by then the cure for this cancer will have been found. Ed, you are amazing….can I clone him Patty? Love ya, Christine PS: My second set of X-rays were o.k. – Thank God!
