Race for the Cure

This race has always been one I enjoyed doing, but it's been nearer and dearer to my heart since my sweet friend, Maxine, was diagnosed with br.east cancer 3+ years ago at too young of an age!

Luckily, my sign says in Celebration of... Not in Honor of...! Yes, my tough as nails, funny as can be, beautiful friend will be 3 years cancer free soon! Can I get an amen?!?

That is partially made possible by people like my other friend, Julie, who is now the areas only fellowship trained bre.ast cancer surgeon. She and her partner sponsored the kids "fun run" at the Susan G. Komen race yesterday!

Obviously I want no one to need their services, but if you have a br.east issue or concern, you should definitely see them at B.reast Care Specialists of Shreveport. (Periods within a word keep them from coming up in an inappropriate search--just FYI, I recently learned that!)

So proud of Julie!!

And so happy to be out running again with her and my sister...

And to be accompanied by the Real Dr. Mook!


  1. Thank ya'll for coming and running with me. I have to say I would not be joining Breast Care Specialists without all the support over the years (especially the cookies you used to bake me in college while I was studying...)

  2. what a wonderful event. I am so glad to learn that your friend has won her battle with breast cancer- something for sure to celebrate

  3. Way to go, ladies! And what a great way to honor Maxine!
