 Asking for you support for COPS Walk Midwest 2018!

COPS Walk Midwest is a fundraising event for Concerns of Police Survivors to walk 25 miles in 2 days. Each walker is required to raise at least $1,000 by August 31st. 

Any donation for me, Cathy Barnard, will allow Team Patrick to participate. Through completion of this event, I will have walked 350 miles for this great organization. Money raised from this event will got to C.O.P.S.' Hands-On Programs that provide grief support to the survivors of America's fallen heroes.

As you know, this year has been physically challenging for me.  Right after I completed COPS Walk 2017, I started looking at my rapid weight loss and wonder why.  After more tests than I care to think about, on November 2, I was diagnosed with Uterine cancer which had spread to my spleen and (perhaps) stomach. On December 20th (Patrick’s birthday) I started with a high dosage of chemo. Chemo was completed on April 24 and surgery was scheduled for May 30th.  BUT on May 18th, I took a tumble down our steps and broke my right ankle.  On the 19th I had surgery to set ankle which included a plate and 8 screws.   After 2 weeks in rehab, I returned home on June 3rd to await my cancer surgery which had been rescheduled to June 22, 2018. BUT I needed another test to clear me for this surgery which could ONLY happen on the day prior to surgery.  After pasting the test and receiving clearance for the next day, I was elated. BUT, not all info got to the right place, so here I sit, with my foot in a boot, waiting.

What better time to get started on my COPS Walk 2018 fundraising!!!

My plan is to walk as much as I can.  I Have participated in this event since Pat was killed - the day my heart was broken. Between his Police family and this great organization, I am in a better place today than I ever thought I might be.
