Out of my comfort zone

I've never asked anyone for money but I've decided to take a step outside my comfort zone to ask for sponsors (any small $ amount would be much appreciated) as I participate in next week's third Annual 5K Walk/Run to benefit the Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital.

That's the facility in Derby, Ct. where I'm currently getting chemo and will soon be getting five weeks of radiation treatments.
The fun never ends! 

The state-of-the-art facility (below see photo of the healing garden outside the treatment room) opened three years ago. 


I took this photo in August. It's such a peaceful setting.

I guess I never dreamed I would be a patient myself in 2011. Goes to show one never knows.

Anyhow, I wrote a story for the paper about the walk/run that you can read here. I hadn't planned on blogging about the event, but I decided to give it a go. 

It's always a good idea to raise awareness of breast cancer. It seems to affect so many people.

The walk organizers' goal is to raise $75,000 this year. I set a goal of $200, to do what I can to help.

I entered your name as a participant to sponsor you, and it didn't show you as a participant, Patti.
I'd still like to help you with this, but maybe I am doing something wrong? I entered the first name and last name from your e-mail address.
