Walking The Walk and Talking The Talk For Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast Cancer WalkMore than 60,000 cancer survivors and supporters gathered together this past Sunday for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk at Jones Beach.

Both my daughters have friends who are breast cancer survivors.  Every year at this time they do this 5 mile walk at Jones Beach to acknowledge breast cancer and hopefully through donations, help raise money for research.

On this beautiful fall day, both my daughters along with 2 of my dear grandchildren walked the walk for this most worthwhile cause.  Miles (on the left) made bracelets of pink and white and gave them away along with the tee shirts, like the ones they are wearing.

Autumn | Such A Beautiful Time of the Year

It’s still mild in New York this time of year.  I just love the crispness of the morning.  It’s so nice to put on a sweater, go outside and breathe in the cool air.

I was out walking my sweet Maxie (click here to see my perfect little dog Maxie), and as I looked around I couldn’t get over how breathtaking the Montauk daisies seem this year.  So full, and with its white bloom it just makes the green background of my yard look perfect.

I am blessed with a lovely piece of property and I have planted my trees and flowers, over the years, to start blooming in mid-March and end with white Montauk daisies and colorful Mums; just seemed to make me take notice.

My Friend Meri | Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Meri happens to be one of my dearest childhood friends. Regrettably after we graduated high school, we lost touch for almost 50 years. That all changed two years ago when the 50 Year Reunion committee tracked me down and reunited Meri and me.

Olga and Meri It turns out that we had  lived less than 10 minutes from each other almost the entire time.  We had a lot of years to catch up on and we continue to make up for the lost time. She is a dear person and has become such a special friend. It broke my heart to hear about the tremendous struggle she had as a breast cancer survivor. But I could not help being filled with overwhelming gratitude that she was here to share the story with me. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I asked her to share that story with you:
