Wish For A World With More Birthdays, And Less Breast Cancer

I came across this post from, and was so overwhelmed by it that I had to share.  On May 5, 2012  the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk took place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  As part of the festivities, there were more than 8,000 cake pops on a 12 ft. birthday cake. Instead of pop sticks, the cake pops were on birthday candles representing the “Wish for a World with Less Breast Cancer and More Birthdays.”
Is that not one of the most amazing and beautiful things ever?  My family has been directly affected by breast cancer, so it is a cause that is near and dear to my heart.  For the last couple of years, two of my "sole sisters" and I have participated in the Rock-n-Roll Marathon & 1/2 Marathon in San Antonio, Texas.  It is an experience I will always treasure.  It's a very overwhelming and emotional experience seeing a sea of 30,000+ people coming together for the great cause of ending breast cancer.  I am thinking now though that my 13.1 miles was NOTHING in comparison to making these 8,000 cake pops!  Can you even imagine???  C. Adam’s Bakery in Milwaukee, WI deserves a HUGE standing ovation for this creation!
