Relay Pics

The Relay for Life this past Friday/Saturday was amazing.  The most difficult moments for Wendi and I were during the Survivor's lap and lighting the Luminaria bags.  The survivor's lap wasn't sad per se, but it reminded us how many people have fought and are fighting cancer.  Of course we missed Cash terribly but it was very touching to see so many luminaria bags for him.  Here's a few pictures of the event (Thanks for taking them Jodi!!!).  Thank you to everyone who was there participating!  I hope to see you all there at the next event, the Seattle Children's Run of Hope, I'll post more about that event soon!

Relay Update

The Lynden Relay for Life is this Friday!  We were asked this week if our band (which includes my dad, brother, cousins, and Karl) would play Friday night at the relay and we were honored to accept.  So please plan on coming out, even if you have not registered yet!  You can register as an individual walker by clicking here.

Walk with us to honor and celebrate the lives of everyone who has had (or has) cancer.  Last year we were just returning from Houston after Cash completed proton therapy and missed this event so we're very excited to be a part of it this year.  Here's a list of the activities (taken from their website):

The Relay is Coming

The 2011 Relay for Life in Lynden, WA, is around the corner!  The Relay is June 17 and 18 and they've raised over $80,000 to date!  We are walking this year on my company's team (Cargill) and are walking in honor of Cash, those who are currently battling cancer, and those who are with Cash in heaven.  If you would like to sign up to walk and/or donate, you can visit my page by clicking here:

Also, mark your calendars for the 2011 Seattle Run of Hope.  This fundraiser is to raise money for pediatric brain research and all of the money raised go to Seattle Children's Hospital to help them research and find cures for pediatric brain tumors. This year the event will be on Sunday, September 25, at Seward Park (same place as last year).  Mike N set up the team again this year (Thanks Mike) - To JOIN please click here:  If you would like to DONATE you can click here: Last year we raised over $5000 and had over 130 participants on our team.  It was an amazing event and this year we are walking in memory of Cash.

Please join us to continue fighting - while not a minute goes by that Wendi and I don't think about Cash, we know that Cash was given to us for a short time to change our lives and we will never forget that and continue to fight for a cure.  Thank you in advance for your help!!!
