Thanks for visiting my Avon Walk page and i appreciate the time you’ve taken out of your day to support me. I’ve committed to participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in rememberence of my late aunt Pamela Gayle Esters, who passed away in her Mid 30s. I have made a commitment to use these next few months to train and fundraise in hopes that my donation will help, the AVON Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade, in providing access to care for those that most need it, fund educational programs, and accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures. Breast cancer is a BIG disease, one that still affects far too many people, and i’m determined to do everything i can to help put an end to it.

Avon Walk San Francisco
Avon Walk weekend is July 9 -10, 2011 I will be walking across the Golden Gate Bridge and alongside the Sausalito waterfront for a total of 39.3 miles over 2 days.
Visit this page often. I’ll update my progress as i walk each morning. I’ll post pictures of my journey to the WALK and of course I’ll post photos of the actual WALK. While you’re here, you might want to spend some time on the site to find out more information on why this event is so important, and the organizations and people that will be helped by the money we all raise. I’ve listed a few quick facts to keep you focused on just what is at stake.
- Excluding cancers of the skin, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, accounting for nearly 1 in 4 cancers diagnosed in US women.
- Breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death among African American women, exceeded only by lung cancer.
- White women have a higher incidence of breast cancer than African American women beginning at age 45. In contrast, African American women have a higher incidence rate before age 45 and are more likely to die from breast cancer at every age.
What You CAN DO:
- At this time, there is no sure way to prevent breast cancer, which is why regular mammograms are so important. A woman’s best overall preventive health strategy is to reduce her known risk factors as much as possible by avoiding weight gain and obesity, engaging in regular physical activity, and minimizing alcohol intake.
- DONATE here NOW.
You can make a donation to my fundraising campaign right here on the website by clicking on the pink “DONATE NOW” button. If you prefer to write a check, just contact me and I’ll send you the information and form.
Thank you. Live Love Laugh more.

Don’t Take My Lemonade Stand
– An American Philosophy
From Lemonade Stands to Large Businesses, Governmental Regulation is Slowly Choking the American Way of Life.
“The strength of our country resides in the minds of our children, and the future of our country will be found in their actions.”
“A prescription for our corrupt, rigged, flawed, and squeezed political system.”
Our current political system not only allows for deceitful and deceptive politics, it actually rewards elected politicians for this deception.
“The story of our rigged and unethical political process is covered thoroughly (and referenced in about 35 places) in the book. However, the book is not only about political chicanery and the self-dealing of politicians. The book is about Common Sense Conservative principles, wayward government policy, unethical/deceptive political practices, and the need for “we the people” to get off the sidelines and engage. In other words, the nation is off-track, and it is both political policy and process that needs the attention of “We the People”.
Not an Expert: My whole perspective is that I am not an expert. I am just an informed American citizen (who has done her homework) who is not satisfied with the direction of our country or the way in which it is currently being governed. I am not a political activist or even a “Tea Party” participant. I have never been to a political rally, and I do not march, carry signs (or even place them in my yard), or put together events. I am not a pundit, a political scientist, a historian, a constitutional lawyer, or a politician.
I am a mother of four who was not particularly politically motivated (other than to cast an informed vote) until I saw the current level of out-of-control government spending, excessive regulation, unimaginable debt, private company bailouts by the government, attempt to take over healthcare by the federal government, and weakness on defense and terrorism. I represent all of those who have not been particularly involved in the political process until recent events. I am a registered Republican, but I am displeased with nearly all politicians, including most Republicans. My values are common sense conservative; and consistent with the Constitution and the notions of our founding fathers.
My book is written for everyday Americans by an everyday American.
Teaching Guide for Kids: My book has an important and distinctive secondary mission. It is designed to help teach our kids common sense conservative values and to think for themselves. Don’t Take My Lemonade Stand – An American Philosophy is supported and reinforced by lemonade stand parables, captioned illustrations, end-of-chapter kids’ questions, and section summaries, to help prepare our kids to meet the obligations and responsibilities of all American citizens when the baton is passed to them.
Call to Action: Freedom is not free, and citizenship does not come without obligation. Our politicians and their appointed bureaucrats will not control themselves without principled and persistent citizen involvement. Don’t Take My Lemonade Stand – An American Philosophy provides the history, the principles, the practical application, and the guidance for everyday citizen involvement. The book details fourteen actions that everyday Americans can take and seventeen Conservative issues that they can support to make a difference in how our government is run.
