A Night of Hope


We were honored to represent St. Jude families at the Night of Hope at the Ren Cen Saturday evening. It was a beautiful event that raised alot of money for St. Jude. Everyone was incredibly kind and open to meeting Kevin and Kevin did well until about 9 pm. They had us speaking at 9:30 pm and I think by then Kevin was ready to head home. He is used to going to bed at 9. Eric did a good job telling about Kevin's inital diagnoises, I handled arriving at St. Jude and radiation. And Eric closed it out.

It was beautiful and what an honor to be surrounded by people who give so much for families like ours.

Kevin doesn't look terribly happy in that photo.

We're doing one of those dinners also on March 19.

Glad to hear things are going so well. Kevin looks like he was in a mood there. Thankfully those moods come and go. It is a great experience to be able to give back to St Jude. We are helping out at a college function Friday night in Daytona and then a Celebrity Golf Tournament on the 15th. This will be Heather's first time speaking about her story in front of a large group, Glad to hear things are going well for ya'll. We miss you and hope to see you all this year sometime. Much love, Terri and Heather
