Almost eight years ago, we lost our beautiful Maureen to Breast Cancer.  I, along with other family and friends, have walked in the Mother's Day race since she was first diagnosed which goes back to 1998.  I am so happy to, once again, be able to walk in the Susan G. Komen Race for the cure on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 11, 2014.  Thousands will gather in Grant Park to walk/run as we raise funds in hopes of finding a cure and to help anyone that has been touched by this disease. 

Maureen was very special to a lot of people and we miss her every day.  As she practiced her medical profession, her patients adored her. She never put the burden of her illness on any of them.  All she wanted to do was to help them in their fight to recover.  Her legacy will live on as the medical foundation that she belonged to has set up a nursing scholarship to a deserving student in her name.  Eden & Cory (Maureen's twins) are turning eighteen this month and I see so much of her in their thoughts and actions.  Cory will be graduating high school and this fall will enter De Paul University majoring in Graphic Arts.  We look forward to Eden going forward with her dreams next year.

Please help this cause in any way that you can.  Thanks in advance.  Together we will fight to make a difference.
