My daughter Aimée Williams, class of 87, fought breast cancer for eight years, passing in Murrieta just after her 40th birthday. Her sister Zoe Williams is chairman of her company's "Race" campaign in Honolulu (Hawaii Gas Co.) and is trying to break the record there. (Aimée and Zoe were born in Hawaii.)

Anyone interested, former classmates and friends, might go to:http://hawaii.info-komen.org/site/TR/RacefortheCure/HNL_HawaiiAffiliate/1134022370?px=7120160&pg=personal&fr_id=2683.

Or send it to me at 34150 HARROW HILL RD., WILDOMAR, 92595. Mahalo, Anita, mother of Mark, Stefani, Aimée and Zoe Williams, Fallbrook 1981 to 2001, and former employee of the Fallbrook Enterprise and the Fallbrook Directory
