Fighting & Winning

This is going to be short & sweet b/c it's April, and it's lacrosse season, and I have about a million and one things that have to be done tonight.  Know I have lots of postings rolling around in my head, but not enough hours in the day to sit down and spit them out. :)  With all that & a graduating senior that is just the way it is.

Here are a few big things:

  • 1st ~ So proud of my alma mater & my kids' high school!  They raised over $250K for Relay for Life.  That's over a quarter of a million dollars y'all!  Since both of my parents died from different forms of cancer, I'm super excited about how this money will be used for research.  Speaking of research, if you haven't seen the new immuno- treatment breakthroughs for certain kinds of brain tumors & skin cancer, google them.  Exciting things for sure.   

  • 2nd ~ I met an amazing young mom of three that has tested positive for the Alzheimer's Dominantly Inherited Gene.  You can read about Carrie here.  She is an amazing woman fighting for Alzheimer's patients everywhere.  We always think about how it's older people that suffer from Alzheimer's, but that is not the truth.  

I hope you have all thawed out from winter & are enjoying a beautiful spring.  It's been raining here so much we thought our toes were going to begin to web.  :)  I need to give 2 birthday shout outs!  1 to my sister Amy (29 & holding) & 1 to my niece LJ, who is 1 today.  Love you both bunches & hope that you have had great days.

Celebrating life & fighting hard & winning big!
