If you've been keeping up with my blog, then you might remember that I helped raise money by auctioning off some of my past Stringing Magazine submissions.  The money was for my friend and talented artist, Rachel Stokoe, and her mother to participate in the 3 Day Journey (a fund-raising event for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and National Philanthropic Trust.)  Rachel sent along some pictures from the event.  The walk was held to raise awareness about prevention and education about breast cancer, as well as help fund development of a cure to combat breast cancer!

I am so proud of Rachel and her mom!  They are really great people who have had to overcome so much and are striving to help make a difference.  And a BIG thank you go out to all the people who bid to help support their being able to walk.  TOGETHER WE CAN FIND A CURE!  TOGETHER WE CAN SAVE LIVES!
