~ReLaY For LIFE!!~ And an amazing outpouring of support!
Larry's office WEST PASCO FAMILY DENTAL and the staff worked hard to get everything together for us to be part of this amazing event. We earned almost $4000 dollar for the American Cancer Society. The team stayed up all night walking and took shifts while they let me sleep up in a trailer. Amazingly they all looked cheerful and fantastic in the morning...way to go!! Dr. Frodel and his wife Kim were very generous as well in their efforts and dontations and I can't tell everyone how much this meant to my family and I. We had friends from all over show up to offer support...and it was perfect!
These were luminaries that were up in the bleachers...and they had luminaries all around the track with people's names who are battling cancer, or who fought hard in their battle against cancer. I also got to be recognized as a SURVIVOR at a nice dinner and survivors lap. A part that meant so much to me was being able to show my girls that they aren't the only ones who have a mommy that is so sick. They walked with me and I was able to show they ALL the cancer survivors...and I could just see Aana soaking it all in. It was just an overall wonderful experience!!!
