Prom Night for LLS

Steve Gunther, triathlete and president of our local chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, hosted a Prom Night party at the Marriott to raise fronds for the charity. Guests of honor were 4-year old Lucy who is in remission from her leukemia, and professional triathlete John Shelp, who is bravely, faithfully and successfully fighting lymphoma. She was diagnosed when she was two and is doing great. So is John! He actually took his final round of Rutuxin therapy a couple days after these pictures, and has posted remarkable results. He let me feel (what's left of) the lump on his neck last week and I could hardly find it!

Please continue to keep him in your prayers!

This is Steve, our host, and his wife Helen kicking it up to Twist and Shout.

And this is Jill , Dia, Laura and Jeff. Laura is demonstrating to all the doubters that she does too have the longest arm. I'm not sure what Jeff is demonstrating, but... nevertheless he has a sunny disposition!

And this is Greg and Laura with me and Bob.

And this is Laura and Jill cozying up with the Bartender. Always a smart move. Good job, girls.

And Nick with Ingrid and the-always-beautiful-inside-and-out Rachel. She's our friend who completed the Ride Across America last year in 8 days.

I'm not sure of the final tally from the silent auction and ticket sales, but it's all for a great cause! If you would like to make a donation, below is John's wife's website. If you have already made one, thank you!
