Twice a year these banners go up. In May for the Race for the Cure and in October for breast cancer awareness month. Every time I see them my heart aches just a little bit. Each time I find my moms I shed a tear. I miss my mommy everyday. I don't know if a day will ever go by that I don't think of her and miss her.
Today I picked up the race shirts and found the banner again. It's still hard to see her name up there. I am excited for the race next week to honor my mommy and all of those other people who have had to battle breast cancer. I love that all of my family does this together. I know that us being together would make my mom happy. I know she looks down and smiles as we all share this event together. For her. I know she looks forward to the day that we will all be with her again. I want to do whatever I need to to be able to be with her forever.
We will find a cure for this. Someday. Somehow.
