Participating in physically challenging
events with other breast cancer survivors was an important part
of my recovery process. Getting my strength back by training was
a healthy, attainable goal for me. I ran in the Susan G. Komen Race
for the Cure, hiked in The Breast Cancer Fund Peak Hike (up Mt.
Tamalpais in California), and climbed Mt. Fuji as a team member
of The Breast Cancer Funds. This flag bears the names of women I
knew with breast cancer; it was attached to my backpack, in their
honor, during the Peak Hike.
