Our family walks in an annual charity walk to raise funds and awareness for blood cancers. For us, this is an event that began in a desperate need to hold tight to the memory of my beloved mother. Over time, it has become a laugh-filled walk full of memories, shared stories, and a guaranteed calendar spot where the stars align for far-away family to be together. 

What happens when this yearly event is plagued with tornadic activity and terrible storms, and subsequently cancelled? We walk. We choose to walk, despite the clouds, despite the rain, despite the cold. 

We walk. We remember. We laugh. We walk.
