Tara's Journey started June 4, 2009 when Tara was diagnosed with stage 3 invasive breast cancer. Since the beginning of her journey we have used a Caringbridge website to keep all of our friends and family updated with her treatments and progress as she fought her cancer, the Caringbridge site was host to 23,335 visitors who faithfully kept checking back on her progress.
In the past two years we as a family have learned what is really important in our lives and have found many ways to make an impact on the ones who really need it in the breast cancer world. Our new website http://www.tarasjourney.org/ really illustrates the many different ways we are involved with Susan G. Komen and in the community. The CaringBridge website will remain open for anyone to still view, but will not be updated as frequently. In Tara's words "the Caringbridge site is for people who are sick and I am not sick".
"Tara's Journey In Ink" will be our new journal site to express ourselves and inform all of our supporters what is going on with Tara's Journey, please take the time to register with the site and you will be notified when new updates have been posted. As everyone already knows Tara and I can be unpredictable, never know what will happen with us next...kind like ending up on the front center page of the Chronicle Telegram. I did not even see that one coming (thanks Bruce), check out the Chronicle Telegram article here http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2011/06/07/elyria-building-inspector-takes-off-clothes-for-breast-cancer-calendar/
Cindy Liese from the Chronicle wrote a fantastic article on Tara's Journey and the 60 Mile Men Calendar that I had the honor of being "Mr. June 2012" in, if you also feel she did a great job representing the work Tara and I are doing please let her know, everyone I spoke with commented on how nice it was to see such a positive story on the front page. Please take the time to let her know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please spread the word about our new sites...
