Today I found a box of old letters and cards in my room while I was cleaning out my closet. They were letters that Scott and I wrote to each other during the times that we were apart during the early years of our relationship. Most of them were written before we had email so many were hand written which was the best part. I sat down and could feel the amazingly strong new love that we had for each other way back in 1992. And I cried. It was the kind of love that hurts so much when apart from one another - whether it was just for a weekend or for a few months. The thing that I realized when reading these old letters is that I love him even more now --- even more than that new first love. It's scary in a way but really, really wonderful.
So now I'm asking you to help me, once again, to find a cure for the love of my life by walking with us in Central Park on December 2nd or donating to our team that will be walking with us to find a cure for cancer. Let's try to raise more than the almost $30,000 that we raised last year.
