This is the 3rd year i will be walking for my momma for the American Cancer Society. The first year, she had just been diagnosed with cancer, the second year was her birthday and she was gone but walking with me in spirit, this 3rd year my daughter will be 3 months old - the walk is a day before my mom's birthday and i am walking with the same type of cancer cells in me that ended up growing into stage 4 cancer taking her life. (don't worry i'm having a hysterectomy in less than 2 weeks to take care of that!)

This year i was able to raise $775 to sponsor my walk - in BIG part b/c of my step dad who doubled what i had raised. So more people can have more birthdays and beat cancer.

This is my special yearly thing for her now. I love it and at the same time i am sooo emotional. I miss her so much. And at the same time i'm so appreciative of her experience and her words of wisdom to me - before she passed away she told me if anything ever came up to take out the uterus - so when it did at my 6 week PP pap i didn't have to hesitate in my decision.

anyway i just wanted to say that i miss my mom, i'm thinking of her and this is my special thing for her.

Loving my mommy Esther Walner.
