Survivors




This evening we went to The Mudcats Stadium for the Relay for Life Events. 

 Tom and Sharon head up the Relay Team for our church.  They held a yard sale in April and last Friday evening, the WUMM & WUMW had a Spaghetti supper and bake sale fundraiser.  It is wonderful to go out there and see all the area churches and other organizations supporting this cause. 

We arrived just in time for the survivor walk.  We didn't stay for the lighting of the luminaries - hopefully, they finished with them before the  thunderstorm that moved onto our area just after 9PM.

Friends from church!
Across the road neighbor and her daughter - her 1st year.
Quilting friend, Linda, her 2nd year!

I was surprised to see how many of the walkers I recognized.

Our family is no stranger to cancer either.  Our family survivor list John's sister Connie; his brother Al;  SIL,Pat; my BIL, Ken; our son, Gordon, 1st year and our niece, Kellie, 2nd year.
