Join Me in Honoring Susie Skinner
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Susie Skinner is one of those people. Now we are celebrating her courageous fight against breast cancer. To honor Susie Skinner and to celebrate how far she has come, I have decided to support Susan G. Komen in their fight against breast cancer, and am truly honored to be a "Pink Tie Guy" in the Class of 2016!!!
What do you think of when you hear the word warrior?
When I hear the word warrior or hear someone described as a warrior, several images come to mind. I think of someone with fierce determination, one that won’t allow obstacles to victory come between them and their ultimate objective. It reminds me of women and men displaying tremendous bravery, inspiring courage, and singular purpose.
Susie was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer on Valentine’s Day of 2010. After her mastectomy surgery, she demonstrated all the qualities of a warrior through her chemotherapy treatments during the summer of 2010. She was determined to get through them, and did so with amazing courage and grace!! It was difficult for some folks she encountered that summer to recognize the ordeal she was dealing with at that time!! But, I think the biggest thing, has been how Susie has been a warrior for others in the battle. She has been a prayer warrior, she has been a warrior of support and love, determined to help her sister and brother cancer patients with amazing and inspiring support.
On our first Susan B. Komen Race for the Cure in 2010, her colleagues at her school had Spartan Green t-shirts made that had “Skinner’s Army” printed across the back, and “We’re in this together” printed on the front along with the running pink ribbon. We’ve worn those shirts at every Komen Race for the Cure since, and serve to remind that there’s an Army of Warriors serving to help find a cure!!
