Sunday Night Wrap Up

Five months since diagnosis, and Georgia is trucking along. She finished the last of the Erwinia shots for this phase on Thursday, plus IV medicine and day surgery, so it was quite a long day. But her reward is a 10-day break - yay! After that, it's one more round of IV medicines, another break, and then on to the last phase of this primary treatment. It's going to be a long summer, and the last eight weeks will probably be the toughest, but Georgia is up for the challenge! She has been so amazing every step of the way, and we couldn't be more proud of her - but you already knew that, right? : )

In other news, the results of the virtual Tour of California are in, and while we weren't one of the 24 bikes chosen at random to have our sticker on Team RadioShack's bikes, we ended up finishing 48th - out of over 19,000 bikes! All thanks to your cheers! I'd say that's a victory, wouldn't you? We had a lot of fun and hope that everyone will continue to follow and support the incredible efforts of LIVESTRONG and its offshoots in the global fight against cancer.

Also, the Texas 4000 starts Friday, and Will's century ride in Lake Tahoe is Sunday! Make sure you check out Will's fundraising page and blog (links in the sidebar) for updates, race reports, and recognition of your generosity and support. We have been so inspired by the dedication and determination of these folks, and we are grateful to them and to YOU for honoring Georgia and the many other survivors out there. That said, I know I'm looking forward to the day when we won't need these events, and we can all just celebrate the ultimate victory - a CURE!

Finally, when were spending the day at the clinic Thursday, I saw some newspaper clippings of Will's visit and "Rojo Johnson's" pitching stint at the Round Rock Express game. Upon closer inspection, I noticed he was wearing a very special piece of jewelry* - see if you can find it:


What a guy.

* If you want to be awesome like Will and hundreds of other folks, make sure to get your very own Georgia bracelet! Send us an email (address in the sidebar), and we'll get one out to you! Thanks, y'all!
