There's No Place Like Hope...

5 years ago we started team Zsa Zsa. 5 years ago, my mom was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer and the fight began. But we always had hope.

We had hope that mom would be loved and comforted through her treatments (she was), hope that God would give her strength and be her comfort during her immense trial (He did), hope that we would hear the words "cancer free" (we continue to), and we hope that one day there will be a cure. So we press on to fundraise and raise awareness to find a cure...We walk...
"Hope" is the thing with feathers—
That perches in the soul—

And sings the tune without the words—

And never stops—at all—

And sweetest—in the Gale—is heard—

And sore must be the storm—
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm—

I've heard it in the chillest land—

And on the strangest Sea—

(my mom and cute nana)

Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb—of Me. ~ Emily Dickinson

Team Zsa Zsa 2010! Thank you from the bottom of my heart...

I'm applauding this post from my sofa! Great pics, great cause, great reason for a cure. The words "cancer free" sound like pure gold in verbal form...
