Last Sunday, the family and I did the Race for the Cure! (walked the 5K) This last year, I've become friends with this girl, Becky in our ward. Her mother in law, Juli (also in our ward), has been diagnosed with breast cancer 3 x in the last 10 years. This year, the young women wanted to be involved and the bishop said it was the gospel in action..serving others. In total, they ended up having over 150 people on Team Juli! It was absolutely incredible to see the support and love from so many for one person. I've been thinking about this for a while...about why it's a race and why we walk to show our support. I think, in a way, it's symbolic of their fight bc these women find a way to put one foot in front of the other every day--they keep getting up and facing the journey ahead of them and just like this race, they are not alone. It was overwhelming to see the many names and faces pinned to people's backs in memory of this person and their fight. some win and some ...lose. Juli, has just found out that it's spread to her brain now. Yet, the moto on our shirts said, Doubt Not, Fear Not, Only Believing! And I think against all odds, she can beat it! We don't understand the kind of trials we are asked to go through sometimes, but Juli is a great example that we can have faith, courage and joy through it. The event had 53,000 people in attendance and oh, go to this link to see the symbol formed from our walk from the sky.
