Golly Is This Lady Long Winded or What??!!

Here is the conclusion of my speech for National Cancer Survivors Day.  Thanks again to my boy for being his Mama's tech geek.

I got my first "Welcome" email for Heroes of Hope.  I am so excited!  I will be attending a Summit for ACS in Anaheim in September, and will get to meet all the other California Heroes of Hope.  There are 30 of us for the state.

In the meantime, have you signed up for a Relay for Life this summer near you?  I hope so.  It's an incredible event and a great way to support ACS for all they do for us cancer people, like me.

Last summer was my first relay (Vallejo/Benicia), and I walked the track as a Survivor still in chemo, with my purple shirt and purple scarf on my bald head, and cancerous Flopsy!  This summer I will be part of my friend Kim's team, proudly walking the track with a big blond mop of hair, boobless and cancer free!  I will be speaking at the Luminaria Ceremony, and yes, there will be lots of cryin! 

Here is a link to learn more about Relay for Life!

Here is the link to the local Relay I will be participating in! Whee hee!

Now you need to get signed up on the team, so when they open their wallets, they can donate to you.

Love the speach. Can't wait for you to talk at our Relay.
