This is a partial post from my New Years Day blog.

  • 2015 will hold many more firsts...some I don’t even know about.  My goal, not resolution, is very basic. My goal is to be healthy: body, mind and soul.
  • Body…I have been eating clean since July 1, 2014.  I have room for improvement in this area.  I am walking my first 5K, Race For A Cure, this month.  I hope to walk many 5K’s for different causes in 2015.  This time, I walk for all who are fighting breast cancer.  I walk to celebrate all survivors and to remember those who lost their battle to this horrible disease. It will be the first time that I will be recognized as a survivor.

I am so excited to participate in this 5K. I was brave enough to be recognized as a survivor.  These are big steps for me.  I will let you know how it goes.

I invite you to follow me on FB @ www.facebook.com/laurasjourneyofhope.

Be Blessed.

I did not realize that the survivors wore a different color shirt.  It was a very emotional day.  Complete strangers were cheering us on as we walked and after we crossed the finish line.  It was truly and amazing experience. I walked for all who are fighting breast cancer.  I walked to celebrate all survivors and to remember those who lost their battle to this horrible disease.

Below are pictures on my survivor shirt and medal.  Also, a picture of  who I celebrate (Cheryll) and I walked in memory of (Nancy).
