I wish I had @zdoggmd talent, perhaps I ‘d have a better title with a play on say “3 men and a baby.” Three of these friends are women with breast cancer, the other is a man with pre-Alzheimer's. All have/are facing their diagnosis and life with amazing grace and strength. All are raising money for their causes. I want to share their links.
Two are local friends who are doing the local Race for the Cure and raising money for Susan G. Komen.
Heather Owens is the daughter of two friends, one a local ED physician. I went to her wedding a few years back. She is just 29 yr old. She is writing about her journey with breast cancer at Fighting Fancy. She is featured in the October 2012 issue Soiree magazine. Her Race for the Cure team is Fighting Fancy (click on link to join her team or donate in her name).
The third woman is the wife of one of our medical bloggers. I have not meet her in person, but have made quilts for two of her children and given her one. She is doing “Making Strides for More Birthdays” and raising money for American Cancer Society. Click here to join her team or donate in her name.
My fourth friend, DeWayne Nash, is a friend from medical school. He lives near Austin, TX and is a retired Family Medicine physician. His blog is Organic Green Doctor. He is doing Walk to End Alzheimers (click on the link to join his team or donate in his name). Here is a link to the video which features he and his wife, showing their involvement at the Alzheimer's Disease Center.
