A Conversation I Hope You Never Have

Walking For All Boobs

Member of 3-Day for the Cure Team F.A.B. (For All Boobs)

In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month I wanted to share a scene between two friends.

Emily was afraid of the expression on her own face. Was it appropriate? She was sitting with Christie, one of her closest and oldest friends, and she suddenly felt awkward.

Christie had just told her that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and Emily just stared at her. She knew that she must not have heard her correctly. Christie was only 32 years old. She was in much better shape than Emily. She could not be sick.

As if she was able to read Emily’s thoughts, Christie spoke again, “Yes, Em, you did hear me. I said cancer.” Read the rest of this entry »





What IS the 3-Day?

30 06 2010

The following explanation of the 3-Day was written by 3-Day for the Cure Ambassador Jay Furr. Most of the post is beloiw, but if you want to read it on Jay’s site, you can read it  here. I was inspired to write my own explanation, but Jay did such a great job, I’m borrowing it. Thanks Jay!

Once you understand what, exactly, the 3-Day for the Cure is, please support me on my 3-Day journey and donate on my fundraising page: www.the3day.org/goto/AmyTeeple

Thanks! Happy reading …

It’s not a race.  Read the rest of this entry »

We Want Your Cans for Our Boobs

30 04 2010

Catchy title, isn’t it?

Last year, my wife Julie and I walked in our first Breast Cancer 3 Day. It was an amazing experience. When we finished, there was no doubt in our minds that we would walk again this year. In fact, we registered for the 2010 walk before Julie’s shin splints had healed from the 2009 walk.

This year, our friend Kristin has joined our team – Team F.A.B. (For All Boobs). Kristin and her awesome roommate Erika (who has taken on the role of our fundraising coordinator) have motivated us to start raising money early so we can not only reach our goal needed to walk ($2,300 each), but exceed it.
