My name is Stacie Flinn and I am walking in Atlanta in Oct 2010. This is my first 3Day walk. I am a member of the 3Day team “Pink for Life”, nine amazing women trying to make a difference in this fight.
I have 7 year old triplets, 2 girls and a boy. We live in Huntsville. My husband is a District Manager for Sears and I am a stay at home Accountant. (I worked in public accounting firms for 15 years until my babies were born and then decided I needed to set my own schedule and work. Hence the stay at home part!)
I am very very busy with home and kids’ activities! I am a Brownie Troop leader, a home room mom and CEO & Financial Adviser to the Flinn Household. And now I am doing this 3Day walk.
I was inspired to do this walk by a friend, Deb Swinford, I met when I first moved to Huntsville who was diagnosed with breast cancer that same year. She is a mom of an 8 year old and thankfully is surviving this dreaded disease after a double mastectomy. That same year a friend’s mom, Lavada, was also diagnosed with breast cancer. She is surviving but in a very tough fight. Within the last month, another friend, Cristina Boudha, was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer and now has begun her fight to survive this disease.
It is because of these women and the millions more that I walk. I cannot imagine being diagnosed with this horrible disease. I cannot imagine one of my girls being diagnosed with this disease. I cannot imagine one more friend being diagnosed with this disease. And I hope I never have too…
