I was one of the physicians covering the Susan G. Komen 3-day™. A middle-aged woman came into the tent, sad because she thought her knee injury was too severe for her to finish the 60-mile walk. Her sister had died of breast cancer and she passionately wanted to support her sister’s memory. After a few stretches, ice, taping, and education on her malady, she walked out with renewed conviction and determination to finish the event. That confident smile on her face made it all worthwhile for me.
