DC Race For Hope

Just a quick Monday morning shout out to Shannon's DC based family: Cousin Kevin and his fiancee Meaghan, Cousin Brendan and his girlfriend Hannah, Cousin Charlie and Aunt Bridgid (who flew in from MN). This gang took part in The Race for Hope yesterday to raise money and awareness for brain tumor research. They were "Sprinting for Shannon". Very cool.

Dan and his brother Tim plan to run the Med City half marathon here in Rochester Memorial Weekend with a similar mission. (Anyone else out there planning to run Med City, let us know and we'll include you in a potential shirt order... still investigating ...)

We are hoping to get some help/relief from Dr. Laack or the nurse practitioner Denise today as Shannon's side effects have started to make her more uncomfortable. She really is focused on feeling good enough to play in the golf meet tomorrow, so that's our goal this first part of the week.

Anger reared it's ugly head last night around here - from all four of us and in different ways. We're mad as hell. But, we're in the midst of the daily grind of fighting and we need to fire up and find the strength to continue. More later ...
