in celebration of friends & family on my BD

This year, as a matter of fact, this day, I turned 41.  A week and a half ago, I committed myself to do a few things this year.  One of them is to lose weight and become a healthier person, the second was to commit to what I am calling the “Ultimate Road Trip”.
 
I know that some of you are thinking that I have put in plenty of miles of road trips already in the past couple of years with my friend Wendy, and indeed that is true.  But this is different, for both of us.  For once it doesn’t involve the love of a band, but rather the love for friends acquired through the bands we love, and for family members who have fought brave battles against a disease that takes many prisoners.
 
The brave women I walk in personal celebration of are my friends Nilla, a five year survivor and yet another who was diagnosed and began treatments last spring. These two young women were brought into my circle through our mutual love of music, I dare say we might not have ever found each other if not for that.
My grandmother Dorothy, a 14 year survivor, my aunt Barbara, a 10 year survivor, my late great-grandmother Augusta, and my honorary grandmother Irene, a 5 year survivor along with Lori, a fellow member of the animal care team at Disney’s Animal Kingdom close out my personal 7.
 
As I am soon to embark on the greatest “road trip” of my life, I ask you all, as friends, family and fans of great music, and even some of you that have inspired me with your own music, to join me in support of a cause I truly believe in.
 
The ULTIMATE road trip is about to begin.  For three days in October, I will walk 60 miles in the beautiful city of Tampa Bay, FL to raise money for the fight against breast cancer.  Wendy will be with me as a member of the road crew. She will be there for moral support and ultimately be my roadie, responsible for getting my gear from point A to point B while I am walking.
 
 
I know I can count on you for your support, as all of you are, or have, sisters, girlfriends, wives and mothers who are all possibly at risk for being stricken by this disease. One out of 8 women (about 200,000 yearly) will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, 40 thousand of them will lose the fight.  
 
Please help me help the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the National Philanthropic Trust to find a cure.  I am required as a participant to raise $2100, but I have chosen a goal of $3000, and I know with your help I can reach and possibly surpass that.
 
If there is someone whose life and fight you’d like to honor or celebrate with your donation, please email me rzezniksrose@aol.com and I will wear a special ribbon during the walk to commemorate them.
 
Thank you for your support and God Bless all of you!
 
Rose

Rose,  
I remember you generously donating to me last year and so I'm returning the favor.  Please make sure you train!  I didn't an thus wasn't able to complete the walk.  I'm still debating if I'll give it another try this year.  If you have any questions about the walk or training, please IM me! Even though I couldn't finish, it was still an incredible experience and I made my fundraising goal.  
Good luck!
(oh, I still have the outline for the "Goo Fan for Boobs" shirt I wore last year if you want it. )
