We are proud to walk in support of bladder cancer for the very first time in Atlanta on May 5, 2012 in Piedmont Park at 9 am. My name is Betty Walker Treschitta and I lost my father and best friend to bladder cancer in May of 2010. This year will mark the second anniversary of his passing and I can't think of a better way to honor him than to organize this walk. Please join us as we will walk together through Piedmont Park to fight this terrible disease. If we can increase awareness, we can raise money, save lives, and honor our loved ones!!!
