Arriving at base camp in Crown Point at dusk on Friday, Nov. 15, Jim Hillmann from San Jose, in the midst of his Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk, reflected on why he returns year after year.

“I’m here because my mom passed away from breast cancer in 2004,” Hillmann said, noting San Diego’s Komen Walk is the closest of the seven national regional walks he’s done every year for the past 12.

Hillmann said the Komen walk is a transformative experience. “You come out here as a first-time walker, and it doesn’t take long before you realize, ‘I’m part of a bigger community, a community that is here to support each other,’ ” he said. “By the time you're done with three days and 60 miles, you’ve made connections, and now you start feeling the power of that community — and the synergy that comes from that.”

The pink-themed, anti-breast cancer, three-day walk is no small feat, any way you look at it.

“You’re required to raise $2,300 for every walk,” said Hillmann, adding, “And if you walk multiple cities, it’s $2,300 each walk, $16,100 for all seven.”

Hillman hosts four fundraisers — a Bunko parlor game, collecting recyclables, an Oakland A’s baseball game and sales from a commemorative coin and pin —that collectively pay for all seven of his Komen walks.

Hillman said, on day one of the Komen walk, which starts in Del Mar and ends in downtown San Diego three days later, that he saw a woman in tears whom he described as “overwhelmed.”

“We were there to pick her up, talk with her and support her,” he added.

Outfitted with a team shirt, badges, ribbons, buttons and all manner of Komen memorabilia, Hillman pointed out that it’s a real sense of accomplishment for him to walk 420 miles in seven cities over 21 days between August and the end of November.

“Every time I walk, at the end, it is just as powerful as the time before,” noted Hillmann. “You’ve accomplished something. You’ve shared your story with new people; they’ve shared their stories. It never gets old for me.” 

People have asked Hillman, “How can you do so many walks, and why do you keep coming back?” 

To that, he responds, “Because there is so much that I can get out of it. There’s a difference you’ve made, an impact.”

Should more people be doing the Komen walk?

“Absolutely,” answered Hillmann. “When you see the impact you’re making you go, ‘Whoa, This is what it’s all about.’ By the end of day two, they’re ready to register. ‘Sign me up for year two.’ ”

Concluded Hillman of the Komen walk experience: “It’s a life-changer.”

Komen 3-Day raises $7 million

This past weekend, more than 2,000 participants completed the journey of a lifetime at the Susan G. Komen San Diego 3-Day. Together, passionate women and men walked 60-miles over the course of three days in the fight for a world without breast cancer, raising $5.7 million. The Komen 3-Day is the longest distance one can go in the fight against breast cancer. These men and women each raised a minimum of $2,300 and walked 20 miles a day for three consecutive days, all while educating tens of thousands of people about breast health.

The proceeds will support the mission of Susan G. Komen by funding breakthrough research and efforts to ensure all people receive the best health care they need. To date, $140.7 million has been raised in the area through the Komen San Diego 3-Day.

“We cannot thank our amazing 3-Day family enough for their time and dedication to this cause,” said Carrie Stovall, Susan G. Komen vice president of events. “Every step they take and every dollar they raise gets us closer to our bold goal of reducing the current number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. by 50 percent by 2026. San Diego has been so supportive of Susan G. Komen and it’s always an incredible experience to host the 3-Day in this city. San Diego, we thank you!”

Participants of the 3-Day have trained and fundraised for several months in preparation for the event, which fosters lifelong friendships and memories while providing the community a moving opportunity to honor those who have battled and for those who continue to fight breast cancer. Participants spent the weekend walking through the San Diego area before concluding with a moving closing ceremony at Waterfront Park.

“The 3-Day is all about raising money and spreading awareness,” said 12 ½ year survivor and nine-time walker Debbie Feinberg. “Even if you can’t complete the full 60 miles, you can walk one day for 20 miles or even walk portions of the weekend, it’s all worth it because, in the end, it’s the sense of community and inspiration for survivors, those battling and future generations.”

I had my first outbreak of Herpes virus nearly 4 years ago. Of all the horridness, the pain and itching were unbearable. I literally freaked out as my general physician said that it had no cure. The outbreaks were not that frequent initially, but every time I fall sick, it would resurface. I had so many sores this year that I was desperate to try anything to get rid of them. Three months ago a friend suggested that I try Dr sikama remedy that's helping people get cured from HSV, COUGHING, HIV&AIDS, GENITAL HERPES, SNEEZING, HEPATITIS B, CANCER e.t.c. I quickly ordered the product and started using the remedies. I'm so relieved to say that I've not had even one outbreak for a whole month now. Moreover, I'm feeling great from within. I truly endorse this herbs product Dr sikama render to me. So if you are suffering from any deadly disease you can also contact this great man on his email: Drsikama@gmail.com call/WhatsApp: 2348130725051

Topic Tango:

"TOM GILDRED Quid Pro Quads An Immigrant Migrant Marital Affair Gone Bad"(MENAFN - Rancho Santa Fe's Press Release Center) -- On Thursday, December 12th, Fairbanks Ranch Investigative reporter Roy Gibson concluded reporting on 'CODE LEGAL'. An investigative report which comprised informational resources stemming from complaints of suspicious misused of justice with specific intent to defraud and deprive undocumented immigrants of their rights to freedom of speech. What started out as investigative reporting on allegations of workers compensation failures by employers to immigrant staff in NYC turned up antics of bribery and extortion which lead CTN's team of reporters into territories New York east coast to west coast San Diego into reporting on a much larger issue which involves the mismanagement of legal civil proceedings in law practices in multiple cases having to do specifically with persons who are known to be immigrants or suspected of being immigrants who are undocumented.

CTN was able to learn more about the vital impact contributed by immigrant families and obtained first hand some retroactive information consistent with reasons why many undocumented immigrants became victims of self-deportation. Some have become homeless or even given up their rights to equal housing in states across America.

What is being called the 'Quid Pro Status Quad' or 'Do Me A Favor' (Or Else)., in a series of libelous claims filed in Courts across America from San Diego CA to New York City against individuals who are suspected of being undocumented and have presented themselves to be a disconcerted threat to an Employer, Sponsor, American Born Spouse, Resident Neighbor, Landlord, Coworkers or even an x-Lover are now raising eye-brows on a new wave of crimes against Non-US-citizens.

The 'Quid Pro Status Quo' is the means by a US Citizen in threatening to used state, local and federal courts to launch civil litigation with intent to persuade or force response to acts elusive to bribery, various acts of extortion i.e.: In NY, a legal threat to bring a lawsuit alleging ownership over 'A Cell Phone Number'. Some lawsuits are patterned and designed as 'Witness Tampering' tools to persuade immigrant employees and individuals in Landlord/Tenant disputes to drop their cases.

NO PROTECTION PLAN IN PLACE

An immigrant or undocumented resident is quicker to obtain the benefits from free health care, stand a better chance at acquittal by forming a defense in a federal criminal charge than they will in defending themselves against frivolous libelous lawsuits.

'CODE LEGAL' is now the rhetorics used so it is impossible to issue a counter lawsuit because in most case scenarios immigrants cannot afford a defense and some have been noted to have been forced into 'Self Deportation'.

To use 'CODE LEGAL' all you need is a willing attorney who's willing to join with you in deceiving the public. The civil litigation proceedings are about forms and protocols, therefore making it very easy for an attorney filing a frivolous lawsuit to inoculate themselves and at no time be subject to disbarment or any retroactive repercussions. CASE IN POINT: GILDRED V FOSTER 153554/2017 in one instance of constructive embarrassment tactics used by an American Citizen in order to force pressurized, induce & even influence an act of suicide upon an individual.

In a lawsuit of convenience: Of April 17, 2016 what lay ahead included 3 years of evidence construction with intent to harass. The evidence then morphed into efforts to induce incriminatory acts on an individual. What evidently were circumstantial innocuous intentions, turned out to be ongoing incognito behavioral patterns, which became fluid and highly pressurized efforts to incriminate, by the use of sometimes in your face innocuous friendly harassment tactics, induce criminal intent and if possible even pushed an unsuspecting x-lover to Gildred's Wife into a state of suicidal mania?

In what had begun as a frivolous benign lawsuit: A San Diego Couple's bizarre lawsuit against an individual in New York City earned itself some unexpected attention from the New York Press. The individual was thought to have been undocumented. But once the lawsuit was filed, it began to confront itself and the purpose of logic begun to out-weigh and defy any form of prudence in whether or not any of its claims make any sense whatsoever.

TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE TO WITHDRAW

Can Thompson's preemptive IIED & Defamation Claims turn out to be in Fact a Hoax? Can truth be hed indeed rushed, went too far in an alleged Medical Cover-up between himself, of Mexican born wife Carolina Gildred, a family psychiatrist & an overzealous Carlsbad Attorney?

We leave our readers with the Pro's & with the Con's:

The Pro's:

1. A litigation of fault (Otherwise) determined to indulge an incident of infatuation at best.

2. A litigation of innuendo (In It) to determine a simple rather be left alone family dispute.

3. A Litigation of convenience (Pro Quad) that wasn't intended to be caught on far less anticipated simultaneous news reporting by the New York Press.

The Con's:

1. The process of Matter vs Law is taken to a stretch by testing at length even the Civil litigation and justice system of the Southern District and The New York State Supreme Court. Presently Res: Senior Administrative Judge Her Honorable Kaplan (Chan).

2. An anti-Trial-able offense exclusive to a Trial-able Counter-Defense in a litigation too late, too little was done to cut its nonsensical breach and insults to the judiciary system.

3. What is 'ProSe Civil Litigation' on trial makes it belief that whether an individual was thought to be undocumented or not, that individual's right to an affirmative defense is generally hinge on the individuals ability to fund a defense. Because it appears that to assert Prudence over form isn't as fundamental as use to be in the civil judicial system. In fact it appears questionable that prudence could still assert itself over any arm of factual ligation through letters and forms?

If then exist the later? Have Prudence lost its place in America's civilian courts?

Then, anyone, any-person who can deem themselves more financially capable, can insulate a lawsuit against any other for their simple lacking in those formalities that's perceived in a defendant who cannot punctuate expediencies formidable enough in order to launch any form of defense. Therefore the Law of expediency in our justice system which have always been the core structure of formidable prudence, stands to be defeated (removed) from its path to (supersede) questionable forms (formality) simple because the lesser fortunate defendant (An Immigrant) could not sustain financial access to support a well needed counter-defense in any civil (let alone) frivolous civil litigation.

Do you believe that Herpes has a permanent cure? My name is Antonio Jefferson Cole, I'm in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have been paying $157 a week for Valtrex and sometimes for Acyclovir, to suppress my Herpes outbreaks as prescribed to me in the hospital. I have considered my yearly subscription costs for these drugs and it is over $2000 a year. Anyone who has herpes can attest to this, with all the pains and embarrassing symptoms. Unfortunately, I have found out that those hospital recommended products are frequently not effective at taking care of the problem but rather make you spend all your money. DR.WATER herbal remedy will get to the root of the cause and cure you completely rather than suppress outbreaks with medication. And you will be happier, healthier, and outbreak free. He also has herbal remedies that can cure HIV, HPV,Cancer, hepatitis and so on. He is the greatest of all herbal healers. His email is DRWATERHIVCURECENTRE@GMAIL.COM and his Whatsapp number: 2349050205019. You can contact him and get a permanent cure to your genital and oral Herpes or genital warts or Alzheimer's illness

Just wanted to call out Paul for his fantastic service through my home buying process - from identifying the best rate through to obtaining approval and settlement. This was my first home purchase and I think it's fair to say that it would have been significantly more challenging without his help. Paul was on top of everything that needed to be done - going the extra bit in dealing with the bank and conveyance to ensure that the whole process was concluded smoothly. The best part was that Paul was always there to answer any questions and provide support, making life much simpler. Highly recommended! www.westernloanfinance.com
