I see PFO affecting my life in various ways every day, especially this Saturday when I did the Susan G. Koman Walk for the Cure. It was one of the most beautiful scenes, seeing everyone be connected for one central cause, just like how PFO is all a common connection. PFO has taught me to appreciate the beauty in everything. It was inspiring to see all the survivors, and what they’ve achieved, and it inspires me to do my small part in hopes that one day PFO will have that impact as well. Although it was a bitter-sweet day, I missed being able to see my buddy and be present at my committee meeting, but I’m also very glad I got the opportunity to be a part of the walk.
