For Bess Miller left by Rebecca Gardner on 11/30/06
My mother, a lover of the outdoors and my inspiritation for mountain climbing and backpacking, passed in 1992 before I was introduced to the magnificant Boundary Waters/Quetico. In 1995, a colleague invited me on a Boundary Waters trip, women only, where the only rule is that you must leave your husbands, partners, and kids at home. I had no idea how this now annual trip, and the bond with these women, "The Femmes du Norde", would become so special to me. I'm just so sad the my mother did not survive her battle with cancer so as to experience this adventure with the wonderful Femmes.
This is for you, Mom, an honorary Femme du Norde!
For Family of Roberta Moore left by Roberta Moore on 4/2/07
I pay tribute to my mother, my aunts and cousins and all who have lost their battles with this insidious monster. I also pay tribute to Jackie, Carolyn, Beth, Mary, Cristi, Linda and all those who have survived and all those who continue to battle breast cancer.
I am the very first breast cancer survivor in my family and before I was diagnosed I believed, because of my family history, that a diagnosis of breast cancer was a death sentence. 6 years later, I believe my diagnosis was more of a "LIFE sentence", meaning I will continue to live life as fully as possible and yes, I will survive! I will paddle "pink" and with every stroke, pray that every effort, every bit of research, everything we do, will finally eradicate breast cancer. I hope, with all my heart, that my
granddaughters and their daughters will think of breast cancer as a disease that somebody might have mentioned, something that happened a long, long
