To Honor. To Remember. To Cure.

Early last month, Adam, the kids and I joined Camryn and her court for the annual Cure Search Walk. The organization raises money and awareness for childhood cancers.
We arrived that gloomy morning all happy to see one another and to honor Camryn. As the opening ceremony began, tears were filling my eyes as the lady was reading all the names of the kids we would walk in memory of that morning. Soon, the happy tears took over as Camryn and all the other cancer survivors walked across the stage as their names was called, to receive a medal of honor.

We began the walk, about a mile, which took us around Principle Park. We walked as a group and chatted along the way. Celebrating the happy, healthy five year old that we love so much.

At the end of the walk, we all got together for a group photo. Of course all the kids had to get in one also.
It was a morning of mixed emotions, knowing there were so many kids that didn't make it, but also knowing that there are so many that did and are. I know that the money I raised will benefit all of those children and many more that will be diagnosed in the future. Hopefully one day, there will be a cure. Until then, I'll keep raising money and walking to raise awareness.
