A gathering sea of pink. Thousands participate each year in June in the St. Louis Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure. This race, whose donations benefit breast cancer research, is dear to me as breast cancer took my mother in 1987 when she was only 57.
This is the symbol of a community no one wants to belong to but many, many do. Susan G. Komen St. Louis Race for a Cure draws some of the largest crowds in the United States and brings together tens of thousands to commemorate and celebrate the lives of the those inflicted with breast cancer. We walk for my mother, Jeanette, who passed away in 1987.
