Scoopin' For The Cure

Thanks to EVERYONE who came out and joined the fight against breast cancer at our Scoopin' For The Cure event today.  It was announced on our Facebook page that our custom Music City Spirit flavor is chocolate covered amaretto cherry.  And it is Y-U-M-M-Y!

Among our guests we had a 7 year survivor, a 2 year survivor, and a woman currently in the fight who had lost her hair.  The cut of her dress showed her battle wounds.  We got her name to add it to the ribbon boa we carry with us on the walk.

We were fortunate to have some wonderful coverage from our local television stations.  Here is the piece our ABC affiliate did today.
I have a friend who is currently in the hospital, on the loosing end of Stage 4 Inflammatory Breast Cancer.  (This is not a battle anyone wins.)  She was laying in her hospital bed today, half asleep when she heard my voice in her room... coming through the TV speakers.  She called me tonight, and thanked me for raising "a boatload of money" through our team, because "most people just sit on their ass and don't do anything.  But thanks to people like you, someone some day isn't going to be stuck here in the hospital because of this stupid damn disease." 

If you would like to join the fight to rid the world of "this stupid damn disease" please take a moment to donate to a team member.
