While I do not remember a lot of things well from this time of my life, I still remember the weekend in Galveston when we had decided to break the news to my youngest daughters that I had been diagnosed with breast cancer.  I was shocked when they informed us that we had ruined their weekend.  I still wonder what they thought it was doing for my weekend.

Hi, my name is Michelle Olson and I have walked with Team Tiara since 2008. How I became a Tiara. I found out about Team Tiara from Suzi Bruin, who had just finished walking her first 3-Day two weeks prior. (I now understand the 3-Day high she was on!) I was at our neighborhood 5K event and Suzi spotted my Komen Race for the Cure t-shirt. It just happened to be on top in my t-shirt drawer that day! You know the saying; Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous. When she told me about the...
