This past weekend, me and my girls took part in a special women only race that I like to run every year. The Lady Track Shack 5k in Winter Park, FL benefits the Florida Hospital Breast Cancer Care Fund. I've always felt like this was a great cause to run for, but this year the race got more real. This year the race was held just two days after one of our friends received her first chemo treatment for breast cancer. We definitely wanted to show her that she had our support and that we believed in her. We had our largest group ever sign up to run this race together. We made sure to get matching t-shirts to show everyone just who we were running for. They said Believe - Running for Rynda.

It seems that more and more people know someone or have been affected themselves by breast cancer. While the fight to find a cure continues, the best thing that we can do is to educate ourselves and have yourself checked for early detection. Remember to do self exams monthly. I don't know exactly what to say or do to help my friend, but I do hope she knows that we are all here for her whenever she needs something. I can't even imagine how scary that situation is and I just hope everyone dealing with this has a support system to help them make it through. We believe in hope for a cure!
