You Must Row With The Oars You Have

This walk is about so many things for me…

It is about what I’ll be able to give to others…and to a cause that I know needs more funding…and that not many other people either know about unless they themselves or someone in their family has been affected by a brain tumor.  In fact, even if they do know about brain tumors, they may not know that there’s such a need for more funding or research. This walk is also about ...

As If Walking Wasn’t Enough

In a few days it will be 90 days from the day I start walking from my house to Mass General Hospital.  This walk has metamorphosed.

When I first thought about how I could talk to people about brain tumors and the need for more funding and research, I had also just started to have strange seizure like events-I was advised by my doctors not to drive until they figured out what was going on with me.  I had to walk ...

Friend of a Friend

A couple of weeks ago I was sick with the flu, I should have gotten the vaccine, but in the past I’ve gotten the vaccine and actually ended up getting the flu anyway. I made an Executive Decision and decided not to have the vaccine this year…wrong decision. Next year I will get the vaccine…next year I’ll be one of the first people to get it. This flu took me down to the mat. First, Rachel got it-this is almost ...

On A Mission

A Mission is a responsibility, a duty, a commitment, a life’s work, an undertaking, a journey, an intention, a venture, a purpose, a calling, a pledge

A Mission Statement is supposed to be an official statement of the aims and objectives of a business, but it’s so much more.

I’ve written several mission statements for companies I’ve started, companies I’ve thought of starting, projects I’ve started, or thought of starting-it’s what I’ve had to do, it was ...

Don’t Put Off To Tomorrow, What You Can Do Today!

I almost can’t help myself, I’ve been living this way for so long; funny thing is that until only recently I thought everyone lived this way. I was talking to a friend of mine about all the things I’ve been doing…this is a long list of things, partially because of habit (I’ve always been a person who feels best when I’m doing a lot of things), and partially because I’m a person who has ...

I’m Walking, Yes Indeed I’m Walking

So next October 1st, it’s my hope should all things go right (this is no small task), that it’ll be the first day I will be on the road to Boston. My plan is to walk 10 miles a day, the trip is about 300 miles long…it’s shorter if I’m driving, the trip is longer because I’ll be going through individual neighborhoods. When I drove the trip every week in 2008 for radiation ...

Time Flies

This August 30th was the 20th Anniversary of the first time I had brain surgery. In 1990 I was the mother of a one-year old baby girl. Jon and I moved four times the year before that, because our apartment had been destroyed by the Con Ed Department Steam Pipe Explosion-a true New York City story. We had decided a lucky 15 minutes beforehand to take a walk with our then 4 month old ...

Before You Can Walk, You Have to Ride…Or It’s Off to Musa’s Slaughterhouse We Go

It’s still my intention to walk the 227 plus miles from my house to Mass General Hospital this June; that is of course once I create my Non Profit Organization (which I find out takes time…lots of time), fill out paperwork to attract and attach various sponsors, contact sponsors and wait for them to call me back (which I find out, takes time…lots of time), train to walk long distances in all kinds of weather, ...

The Road Back

August 11th was one year from the last day I had radiation. Last year was the year I was sick, this year has been the year of recovery, and this next year is the year I’m moving forward. I can feel it.

Last year at this time I could hardly walk the two blocks to the hospital for treatment, today I can walk two miles, next year (June of 2010), I’m planning to walk ...
