luvmydog2 Posted June 25, 2005 Share Posted June 25, 2005 I attended my second Relay For Life last night. It rained last year and I did not get to walk, so last night was the first year that I got to walk the Survivors Lap. For those of you that have never walked you need to give it a try. It is an experiance that I can not explain. I am a little over 2 years out from surgery. I don't think I have shed the first tear since my dx. I may have cried in pain a few times, but last night as we rounded each curve people were standing there cheering us on. I about lost it. Had I not had my wife by my side I probably would have. There were 3 state legislators there. Just as I crossed the finish line I noticed they were headed for the gate. I ran into them. One of them, whom I went to school with, said to me as were shaking hands, "you walked your survivors lap didn't you." I looked at him and said "I sure did. I would walk that lap if I had to crawl." As some of you may recall from an earlier post of mine, I stand to loose my medical coverage at the hands of the State. You guessed it. He was one of the legislators that supported the Governer. That is a whole new story. Anyway, I wanted to share my experience with you. Get out and walk if you can. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
