What does it take..

to make a difference in some one`s life?  Or even your own.. You can list all of the qualities that one need to posses in order to proceed. But does every one have them? I believe so. When we become determined about things in life that mean a lot to us we aether discover them within ourselves or develop them because we were touched by someone`s story.
I have meet one amazing girl who have shared her story with me and made me think of how awesome what she does is.  Meet Julie Miller who I`ve meat through her blog Because Everyone Deserves A Life Time . The fight to end a Breast cancer is not the easy one.. but yet she stood up to it and here is her story:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Three years ago, my best friend and I had the idea to walk in the 3-day. We have always had these crazy ideas on what we could do to make a difference in someone's life. Out of all the idea's we have had, this is the only one that has stuck with me through the years. I have always dreamt of making a change, in the breast cancer community, I always wanted to help a little girl, keep her mother healthy forever.
I was adopted in to the McCarthy-Miller family in June of 92', and four months later my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. For as long as I can remember my mom has been sick, bald, and fighting. The older I got, the more embarrassing her bald head became for me, but her bald head never made me stop loving her. She always marched to the beat of her own drum, loved clothes and shoes, and loved being stubborn in her pack-rat ways.
Not only am I walking for my mom but im also walking for my Aunt Lizzie, and my Grandmother, who have both living together in Heaven. I have great memories of my Aunt, she was the only person that could brush my hair, she never cared if I screamed, she just kept going at it. I remember when she got put on hospice, although at the time I didn’t know what it meant, I just thought she got a new fancy bed, but little did I know it was the end of her long fight. My aunt left behind a husband, and three young kids, but not only that she left behind a family who loved her more then words could ever describe.
I signed up for the Susan G Komen 3-Day For The Cure, in January, after having one of those ‘lets make a difference in the world’ conversations with Caroline, I have always loved the idea of doing the 3-Day, and this year was my year to do something big, to make a difference, to prove everybody wrong, and to enjoy giving back to the ladies AND MEN who are fighting this disease.
Please support me as I take an amazing journey in the fight to end breast cancer! The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days. Proceeds from the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure are invested in breast cancer research and community programs.

With out your help, i will not be able to do this walk and live out this dream of mine! Please open your hearts and help me put a stop to breast cancer!
