I am visiting my daughter, Monica, in Ottawa. Monica recently lost a dear friend from high school to breast cancer. My darling sister, Helen, is a breast cancer survivor. So this weekend Monica and I are preparing a few things to help in the fight against this terrible disease.
Monica has gathered a team of friends and family to walk with her for the CIBC Run for the Cure. Even my two pre-teen granddaughters are joining her. She bought pink T-shirts for them all to wear on October 2, when the walk/run is to be held.
On Tuesday Monica is having a bake sale at work and we are having an intensive weekend “bake-off” to get things ready for it. She bought pink ribbons to hand out as well. We bought a “pink-ribbon-shaped cookie-cutter” to make cookies, and we are making loaves, cupcakes, muffins, and cookies. They will all be bagged and they will sell for $1.00 each.
Monica invited friends via Facebook, to sponsor her on the walk and she has already raised a good sum of money for Cancer Research. I am proud of her and I am happy to be supporting her in this endeavor.
