Thank YOU!

Alexis wanted to thank each one of you who took time to join us at our Fun Night at Fat Cat's Fundraiser! Part of the battle with any cancer patient is keeping up hope and a good attitude. While this has never been Alexis' issue, seeing all the family & friends come out for an evening of fun contributed to feeling a little happier, a little more joy, a little more blessed for both Alexis and her family. Alexis made the comment, "it wasn't even just my mom and dads friends, there were a lot of my friends and family!" And Corbin was quick to point out how when both friends & family gets on board they can really make an impact.

And to those who took time to donate & buy things that night, we especially thank you. Our totals so far are in the thousands of dollars. There are many things to worry about in a day when you have cancer, but this money will certainly aid in curing some of those worries.

So thank you for bringing your smiles, you money, and yourselves. Without you it would not have been an evening worth remembering. As Oprah once said, Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. Thank you for being the friend who is there through the thick and thin.

Below are just a few pictures from the evening, I am sure Alexis will have more to post later with lot's and lot's and lot's more (some of those are on facebook).

WOW, such great support. Sorry we did not make it but we do plan on donating and visiting also. It seemed wonderful with all of the help. Such great attitude and example for all us to follow.
