As most of you know, I lost my beautiful mother in 2005 to colon cancer. On Saturday, I joined a great group of friends in the "Relay for Life" benefiting the American Cancer Society, in honor of my mother. The event raised over $60,000 and our team won several awards, including the "most spirited team" for our fabulous t-shirts. Double click on the pictures and you can read what our shirts say--I think our shirts summed it all up!!!
