What is it all about?

Perhaps you are wondering what a "walk" is all about and I thought a review of the 2011 Walk to Break the Silence would be helpful. One might think that a gathering focused around cancer would be a depressing time but the NOCC Walk is an uplifting, empowering event. Music and laughter, education areas and sponsor tents, snacks and raffles fill Diversey Harbor. The highlight is the gathering for the Survivors' photo - and Melanie will be front and center this year - I'm sure in her St. Louis Cardinal's cap. Ovarian cancer does not get the same retail visibility of other causes; and with its very aggressive progression, it is all the more reason to spread the word. Next up - the Teal Tribe!
