Benicia Relay for Life! My last Relay speech this year!

I did it!

This was my last speech given as a 2012 Hero of Hope!  Wow what a Relay season! It was great to be home, at my kids' high school, and among so many family, friends, Panther Band students and parents.  It was a cold awesome morning, and I was so blessed to share it with Cara and family, and my coworker Liz, also a breast cancer survivor!

Liz and Cara with me!  Yay!

These luminaries, made by my friend Kimberly at ACS, glowed through the night this year at the Fairfield Relay, Vallejo Relay and then made their final appearance at the Benicia Relay.  I had to retire them Kimberly!  They were ragged but loved after all three Relays!

Luminaries, for Mom, Cara, and me

Adam and Cara

Zac, Adam, Cara and me.

Until there's a cure...

Celebrate, Remember, Fight Back

I thoroughly enjoyed my year as a Hero of Hope for ACS!  I met so many wonderful survivors and caregivers and volunteers.  It was an incredible honor and healing experience to be able to tell my story, and get so much love in return.

Thank you ACS.  Thank you to all the wonderful dedicated Relayers I met.  RELAY NATION.

I did it!
