Hi Moms!!! If anyone is located in or near San Jose, CA, I would love for you to join me... please see below!
Stay strong ladies!
I was diagnosed with cancer the day after my son was born last September. I had surgery a year ago in February and we thought I was in the clear until we recently got the results back of a PET scan this past January that showed a new growth on my mesenteric lymph node. We are heading back to Stanford in May for more tests and will hopefully know more as it relates to treatment, etc. The good news is that I feel great and have no side affects and no pain.
Last year, I had a wonderful team walking with me on this inaugural year of the Livestrong Challenge in San Jose. It was very emotional and overwhelming. We all had a great time and I was fortunate to be able to raise over $10,000 for this cause that has affected my life.
I had such a great time last year; I am going to be on the streets of San Jose once again on July 12, 2009. I have created a team, Team Reisa B and hope that I can encourage some of you to join me on my quest to raise money for cancer research. I have a site created for those of you who are so inclined to join me on July 12 in either walking or riding and to get donations. I have another site for those of you who simply wish to donate to the cause.

I realize that this is not the best of times however I am optimistic and have set a goal to raise $10,000 and would love to have at least 25 people come to support me in my battle to raise cancer. If you are so inclined to donate, please check with your employer if they do a matching program. This is a great way to double your donation.
Thank you all for your support during this time. All the love and prayers are welcome.
