Sunday Snapshot: Go Team Gina


A few weeks ago, I mentioned that Madeline and I would be walking in a Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure for one of my sister's dear friends, Gina. One year ago, then just 31 years old, Gina was diagnosed with breast cancer. Today, she is battling for her life, as her cancer has spread. Those who have rallied behind her are her team, Team Gina.

We all arrived very early for this event, leaving the house by 6:15am. That isn't easy with little ones.

Even Baby Joshua participated in the walk. Yes, that is him napping in my sister's carrier.

It took a while for all of Gina's team to gather together. It was one of the largest community teams! So we were the last ones to take to the course. Here's Gina with her wonderful mom.

With so many team members (Gina included) pushing strollers, we opted for the short course.

At the conclusion of the race, we dug into bananas and bagels and refreshed ourselves with some water. We also rallied the team together for a much needed photo. Gina's Team has over 50 members!

Some of the most important members of Team Gina are, of course, Gina, her mom, her husband Will, and her precious little kiddos.

I also had to snap a photo of Gina with some of her former co-workers.

Gina, we are so proud to be a part of your team. You are an amazing woman, so courageous and strong. A woman full of faith and determination. We will take each step right alongside you as you run this race in life. And the Lord who created you will never leave your side. Never. We love you, girl!!!!!

That is an impressive team you all had there! Gina is fortunate to have all of you rallying around her during this time.

That is a strong turn-out! :) I'm sure it means the world to her to have that kind of support around her. Thank God for good friends!
