Lolita Harper BURBANK -- If kids want to dress up as Burbank's newest heroines for Halloween, the costume is simple. It requires a T-shirt, shorts, a pair of tennis shoes and a pink ribbon to pin on their chest. That is the uniform four Burbank women wear while fighting breast cancer -- a villain that will kill an estimated 41,200 women this year alone. Joy Valento, 56, Sandy Sessinghouse, 53, Cathy Schwalm, 55, and Mary Searock, 53, plan to walk in the Avon Breast Cancer 3-Day, a fund-raiser starting Friday in Santa Barbara and ending, three days and 60 miles later, in Malibu.
