LLS Man/Woman of the Year Midway rally

I went to the Rocky Mountain Chapter Man/Woman of the year mid year rally tonight after work.

We got to meet the boy and girl of the year.  They are the reason, the inspiration for the men and woman who are putting themselves on the line.

This is one of many of the signature fund raising campaigns for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

This is a 10 week contest where each candidate runs to become the man and woman of the year and every dollar that is raised counts as a vote.  The candidate with the most votes($$$) wins.

It was a nice night.  I got to chat with the Mom and sister of the former boy of the year Robert.  Robert's sister Cassandra is running in honor of Robert this year.

How awesome is that for both of them.

This was a night full of hope, determination, inspiration, commitment.

When I got home I read an email from my Mother. 

Cancer struck once again in our family.
