Approaching $1,000!



I just wanted to throw out a HUGE thanks to those of you who have offered to support my LiveSTRONG ride on August 26th. As I type this, I am approaching $1,000!!! My entire cancer experience has taught me to fully appreciate how incredibly blessed I am, most of all by the friends and family who support me. I was saying to someone the other day that it's not that I ever took friendships for granted, but it gains a new perspective when people cook for your family or cut your lawn because you can't do it for yourself, or give money to your cause (even though I've never met some of you).

It's truly humbling to be loved that much. St. Thomas Aquinas once wrote "There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship." Amen, and thank you.

Got you a little closer, Rob. Many hands . . .

and many feet, as in your case. Glad to kick in, and glad you're riding, man!

Me and the fam will be on the sidelines cheering you on. Are there team fish t-shirts?
