Walks are events and time people come together to raise awareness and funds to defeat cancerous diseases one step at a time. In this event you will make new friends, reconnect with old friends and learn more about how to be helpful in fulfilling the vision of a world free of cancerous diseases. One’s participation and support helps save lives by funding key cancerous research and provides invaluable health resources, assistance and information for those who needs it the most.
According to the Susan G. Komen the More Than Pink Walk which stepped off at Coney Island, on September 28th, 2019 turned the amusement park into an enormous sea of pink.
Amazingly there are astonishing stories of survival and overwhelming personal losses all of which at the same time were remarkably familiar.
For example, with the support of very good friend, Cincinnati Vice Mayor Christopher Smitherman and his family are on this journey to honor the life of his wife, Pamela Smitherman, who died of cancer this year. I saw his suffering and I felt their pain.
According to Christopher Smitherman, “We lost Pamela. It’s hard for me and the five kids. But we’re going to make sure she is not forgotten.”
Admits his pain,his long-suffering, and the recent lost of his wife to cancer, Cincinnati, Vice Mayor Christopher Smitherman attitude towards life seems to be fashioned after an accurate ecclesiastical magnification presented in Romans 10:17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. Mark 5:36 Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe. and 1 John 5:5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
He is a thoughtful, compassionate, considerate caring and loving father. He’s God fairing, God loving and overall distinguished as an exceptionally good human being.
Yes! Smitherman’s children, family members and some of close friends came together and fellowship with him on this event.
Reportedly, Smitherman continued to say; “he is grateful for the support he and his children have received. A year ago, she was with us walking, and now we’re meeting so many people that fellowshipped with us who are still here, which is a blessing.”
Truly, Smitherman believes that faith is the basic ingredient to begin a relationship with God. Faith is the assurance that the things revealed and promised in the Word are true, even though unseen, and gives the believer a conviction that what he expects in faith, will come to pass. … In other words, it becomes so tangible that you now possess it.
Nevertheless, similarly, like the Smithermans, Kim Fields is on this journey. Fields had this to say; “I discovered a lump the night before my scheduled mammogram.”
Fields added, “Miraculously I was successfully treated for cancer and now I’m a seven-year survivor.”
According to statistic every year, approximately 268,000 women and their loved ones will walk this road. Sadly, some will finish the walk alone.
Remarkably, this Pink Walk deluge flows un-fathomlessly in the tri-state, from Cincinnati City Hall, into our neighbors home just next door.
Families are finding the courage to honor loved ones, while others are celebrating a victory won, sharing the strength to go on.
Although Cincinnati Vice Mayor Christopher Smitherman has lost his forever beloved wife Pamela, he wants everyone to know that there is still hope for a complete cure for cancerous diseases. He is not giving-up and admonishes us to continue the fight.”
