Friday mom, dad and I helped set things up for the golf tournament, checked all the hot golfer's in (they were mostly men) and talked with a family that Colleen's Dream honored at the Gala. They honored this family because they raised over 60,000 for research and their mom/sister/wife/friend passed away in September from OVC. This was such a sweet family and one that I hope we stay in contact with for years to come. We agreed that we will definitely meet up every 3rd weekend in February for this wonderful event.
At the beginning of the program, I was humbled to hear my name read among other survivor's.
After dinner I was picked up by a pretty cute guy who took me to the dance floor, introduced me to several people and I ended the evening eating the most delicious cake balls I've ever tasted. Will definitely have to find out where they came from. One of the NFL players wives and I agreed that they melted in our mouths.
I'm excited to see what will come from this evening and to further involve myself with Colleen's Dream as the hope to find that test which will detect OVC in its early stages.
