GALA!… Day 554 22MAY10

We started out the day kind of slowly. Lee and Jarrod went to go work on Jim's boat and Josh and I ate a wonderful breakfast of French Toast Sticks that Joshua made! After the boys played outside, swam at DJ's and took their scooter's for a spin, it was time to get ready for the Gala. We were very fortunate to have one of the candidates, Doug Hoppe, donate a car to pick us up and take us to and from the event. Thank you Doug!
The entire event was very exciting. Joshua, along with Madison, had their pictures taken about a thousand times and both acted like true professionals! We are very proud of our Joshua! He was amazing throughout the entire event.

He was given a very large gift basket filled with lots of Star Wars memorabilia and a very large trophy! We celebrated the Man & Woman of the Year Winners, Erin and Justin, and we can not wait to see all of them on the billboards in a couple of weeks!
Thank you to everyone at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for giving us this wonderful opportunity to share our child with your wonderful organization.  It has been an amazing experience for our family and we are grateful for everything that LLS does to help children like Joshua and Madison!

What a beautiful family! Joshua, you look totally awesome in your tux! LLS is a wonderful organization and those of us who have friends and family appreciate all the efforts to find a cure.

Renee and Lee you look gorgeous as ever and Jarrod I still cannot get over what a grown up you are now.

Love, Miss Laura and Frank
