In 2009, Faith - while still undergoing chemotherapy - walked in Light the Night. Her team, Faith's Hope, raised over $10,000. I met her in person that night, and was a member of that team. She was so proud of her accomplishments to fight back and to help others. Now, Faith is gone, but her cause and memory live on. Her sister Leigh formed a LTN team called "Faith's Hope - 2012," and we walked to honor the memory of her sister, and many others. I wore a photo of Judy and Faith, and Judy's husband Bill, himself undergoing chemotherapy right now for colon cancer, walked with me and wore his late wife's photo. Faith's beloved dog Henry, now lovingly cared for by Leigh, walked along with us.
Our team did well, raising more than $6,000 (which includes some checks that have not yet posted). Here is my LTN page in case you want more information (or even want to make a contribution).
Hurricane Sandy disrupted and destroyed many things, but it held off long enough for us to get our walk in. I am posting a few photos from the night. My camera was having problems with its flash sometimes, so I didn't get a lot of these.
Before the walk, we had a remembrance ceremony to remember those who have passed away. So many have been lost while we race for a cure. I included my sister Ann in my thoughts. I wrote a message to her on a paper flower and tied it to the trellis that they had set up. I miss her every day. These guys piped a moving rendition of "Amazing Grace."
