Peanuts Gallery by Scott - about 1 month ago
"the event was Making Strides against breast cancer. It was a 2.5 mile walk at Elm Park in Worcester, MA on October 20th, 2013. We named our Team "Peanuts Gallery" as "Peanut" was my moms nickname and we lost her just over a year ago to lung disease. we had 31 walkers in our group (friends & family) My family had a big eye opener this year as we had a couple illnesses reach us close to home. I myself was diagnosed with colon cancer in February at the age of 42. Mine was found by shear luck and in its very early stages. I have been treated and in the clear thus far. 3 weeks later my oldest sister (Debbie) was diagnosed with stage 3 Breast Cancer. It has been a struggle for her, but she has lots of support from all of us! She joined us in this walk, and I must say she was thrilled to be there as a "survivor"! I can personally say that the events that have taken place this year has changed the way I look at everything... especially the little kids and the elderly I look at them all! I could spend hours just watching people now, I feel so lucky, and notice just how many people have it worse then myself! Custom Ink helped us along the way! The helped us design and produce our fabulous shirts that all my friends and family will cherish for years to come. Custom Ink was 100% professional. They followed up on every move. They were all friendly and helpful, not to mention very caring and interested as to the event that we were attending and why! Custom Ink also donated to our cause and supported our walk! THANK YOU CUSTOM INK!!!"
