I have not been updating my Blog sisnce the loss of Scotia last week. I am trying to find a way to make her memorial into a link on this page, I have a little guilt for making another post first on the page. It takes a good cause such as this. A dear friend of mine, and her twin sister have been participating in the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer 3 day walk for a cure, (taking place this weekend), for the last several years. The structure of the 3 day is such that it takes a specific dollar amount per team to participate, which is pretty expensive. The teams fund raise all year, and if they do not hit thier mark, they are charged the difference. My friend's team this year had some shuffling about of members, some loss of members, but bottom line is they have fallen short of thier fund raising goals. In order to avoid a personal charge to them, and support a worthy cause for all women, I have offerred to host a Benefit crop for them with all proceeds to go to the Susan G Komen, Breast Cancer 3 day walk for the Cure, Team Blister Sisters.
