just trying to get the word out......

Michael, Amy, Laura C, and I have created a team for the  DFW Brain Tumor Walk at Trinity Park in Ft. Worth (http://www.braintumorcommunity.org/site/PageServer?pagename=BTW_TX_Homepage) no November 6th.  I was wondering if anyone is interested in joining the team. What would be required to join is the following:

  • Be willing to raise at least $350 in donations from friends, family, and co-workers.
  • Pay a $50 registration fee (not sure if this counts to the donation goal).
  • Put up a personal web page (if you want).
  • Show up at Trinity Park on November 6th, between 8 and 9 am, rain or shine.
  • Walk 5k (or not, you don't have to) and enjoy the festivities afterward.
  • If you can't make it but you still want to be a part of the team, you can become a Virtual Walker (all the responsibilities, but no walking).
If interested, please reply to me. I'll get back to you later.

If you can't do it, no problem. I'll be contacting you for a donation later.

Take care,
Mike

sweet Freedom

SO today I made it 29.  I could not have done it without the prayers and positive vibes being sent my way.  I would also like to thank The Most loving, supportive, dependable husband in the entire world. Michael If it weren't for you....... You know the rest.

SO when Dr fink told me I should sign up for a driving evaluation I forgot to ask if I could ride a bike. I called the Driving evaluation place and it will be on sept 26.   I just called and asked if I could ride a bike and they said it was up to us and as long as I can balance and wear a helmet.  The guy that did my physical therapy said I had better balance than any other patient he had seen.  And since I have accepted the fact that I won't be able to drive now, I am glad.  That gives Teresa and I enough time to get me ready to drive.

The point is that My Husband and I are going to purchase a bike for my birthday!! I feel like a child,  getting so enthusiastic about a bike but it will allow me to get some freedom.

Anyway My next MRI is the 24th and I meet with Dr. Fink the following Monday. SO I will keep you posted!
