Here it is… the final results and to share with you the thank you note I sent to my donors… what a great marathon, a great focus for me during this crazy time in my life.
Note: On that Tuesday following the marathon on 4/19 there was an All Staff Briefing where they shared my “update” with the ACS staff nationwide. I was honored as they share my story as inspiration and to show my Wonder Woman photo on screen and on the webcast. I was in the air traveling to Salt Lake City for our annual family vacation at Snowbird and not able to see it live, but my friends shared the moment and the virtual cheers from across the country — how cool is that!
My thank you note:
Thank you to all the ACS DetermiNation volunteers and staff too!
This truly was my best experience for DNation! I consider myself an “expert”! 🙂
The Dream Team was truly amazing with their participation and results!
I had to share my results and experience in photos as it is truly a celebration of life for me to have these results after only 6 weeks after having my spleen removed and 5 months since my last chemo treatment. 🙂
