Hi all my beautiful and sweet sisters. I just popped in to tell you that I held you all close in my heart during the Susan B. Koleman walk in Denver Colorado. There must have been a million walking in pink for us and for the cure. It was awesome. My Jamie had everything planned to perfection we had a large team of friends and my son Ryan his wife Angie and my 2 sweet grandaughters walked with "my gramma Jackie is a survivor" on their backs. I was sooo proud and very emotional. There were tears of Joy and tears for all of those we have lost. There was a band on every corner and quite a survivor celebration at the end. Then a lovely dinner with wine and candlelight at an fantastic italian restaurant topped off the day.
I am home now but can still feel the love that has engulfed me...i will never ever forget this amazing weekend.
I love each and every one of you my sisters in pink who have helped me to be the survivor that I am and that we all will be.
Thank you sisters!!
big huge Hugs,
Jackie

PS. I will post pictures soon, when my daughter gets them to me.

    Glad you had such a great time! It sounds like it was wonderful and you have an amazing group of family and friends supporting you! Can't wait to see your pictures!
    I actually have friends coming from Colorado to join me on my walk this coming Sunday! They opted to participate alongside me, so instead of a short drive to Denver they will be driving to Phoenix! These are people I have not seen in over 20 years! I am so excited to walk this year as a survivor. It has always been important to me but this year I am sure I will be alot more emotional than in previous years.

    Brrr
    It is very chilly in the morning Lynn, I may have to get back into my box of stocking hats I wore last winter when I had no hair. I do have a full head of it now, but it is very short.

    I hope you and my pink sisters are keeping warm. I am hinting for one of those pink snuggies (for BC awareness) I love electric blankies....Maybe from Santa!

    It is so god to hear from you all again. I wish you all the very best.
    Hugs, Jackie

    Jackie, what an inspiring, emotional and beautiful weekend you had! And, to have your family with you to walk in support of bc survivors is just too good for words! I am so happy for you that you got to experience such a wonderful weekend. I did my first Relay For Life this year and I was amazed at how emotional it really is for us. So very happy for you Jackie!

    Love, Jeanne ♥
