First stop? Oakland Relay! I was their opening Survivor speaker; their Relay was held at a lovely Catholic high school, Bishop O'Dowd. It was a beautiful morning and I was generously received. I even got a pink pom pom out of the deal! Yay! I haven't been a cheerleader since high school! Thank you Oakland Relay Committee for requesting me! It was great.

|Another 2 year BC survivor, just like me.|
|I've been thinking, can they use my tummy AND butt to make my new boobies?|
|Been awhile since I was on a track with a pom pom!|
|This beautiful lady, Mykah Montgomery, sang the national anthem.|
|What a voice!|

|The littlest Relayers! They said they Relay for the sleepover! LOL!|

Every time I speak at a Relay, I am blessed, blessed, blessed. Thank you for all the love you showed me during my Relay marathon!
Such love does
the sky now pour,
that whenever I stand in a field,
I have to wring out the light
When I get

I have only two Relays left to speak at. This weekend at my home Relay in Vallejo, I will be the Fight Back speaker Sunday morning, August 5th. Then August 25th, I will be the opening speaker at the Benicia Relay.
I have been so honored and blessed to be an ACS Hero of Hope. Wow. What a ride.
I'm still wringing out the light poured out on me.
