Making Strides for Breast Cancer

This year, I am participating in MAKING STRIDES FOR BREAST CANCER

I am hoping to raise at least 500.00 and would love to exceed that amount! Not a day goes by that I don't think about Paula and wish that she was still here. I miss her sometimes more than I ever thought.

I look at Morgan and Faith and realize they will never really know what an incredible, warm, and loving woman she was. I look at them and can only hope that they will know... THEY were her reason to LIVE! She loved them more than life itself. I look at Faith and I remember her last words to Paula... "Mom, I have to tell you something". Paula looked at her and asked her what. Faith said "I love you". Faith was 4... Morgan was 6.

I'm 34 years old and the thought of losing one of my parents kills me to even THINK about it. They are now 9 and 7, and they have lost their mom.

If you would like to help support me, in Paula's memory, please do so. The link is on the right side (Making Strides) and it will take you to the website. From there, click on find a walker, type in my name, Jennifer Hoy and you will see my personal web page for the walk. I have hope that we will find a cure. Hope is all that we can have. Without that hope, we have nothing.

Thank you for your always continued support with this cause. A cause that has touched my life in such a way that I now have a goal... to make a difference.

whenever i hear you talk about paula, i can feel the love you had/have for her. she must have been an incredible woman! i wish i could have known her. faith and morgan are so lucky to have you in their lives and they can know their mom through you. you can keep her memory alive by talking about her and always letting them hear about her and how wonderful she was. you are one of their only links to their mom and they will look to you for guidance and as a reminder of all the good their mom was.
