Two decades ago, my mother-in-law succumbed to breast cancer. While I never knew her well, I had a few precious opportunities to talk with her briefly in my youth. In hindsight of course, not nearly enough.
This month, I am wearing a pedometer. In November, in honor of Joyce Juanita Boswell Johnson, I will donate $1.00 for each mile walked to Susan G. Komen For The Cure, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with the sole mission of eradicating breast cancer.
Many families have at least one pedometer somewhere around the house. If not, they are available at most local fitness apparel stores and some pharmacies for as little as $25. You can find tips on buying pedometers at this link. I am using a Timex pedometer with a night light. I'll keep you posted on my efforts.
Won't you join me? If you do, please leave your comment below and feel free to monitor daily progress along with me. Together we can help end breast cancer forever!
