Guest speaker… Day 679 23SEP10
Joshua started off the day with a little school work before setting off for a play date with Wojtek. THey had a fun afternoon and I am told Joshua had a great time. Jarrod meanwhile had left during the morning to spend the day with Renee's dad. After the play date Renee and Joshua headed over to the Tampa Tribune to be a part of the LLS Guest Speaker event to help thank people for fund raising for research. The main mission of the LLS is to fund research into a cure for all blood cancers and they do it wonderfully. Renee got up and gave a speech about the importance of research and how it has already helped significantly raise the survival rates for blood cancers but has also helped develop the treatments that Joshua now gets. I am sure she did a fine job. Joshua was the evening's Honored Hero and I feel certain he helped to put a face to the beneficiaries of their fund raising efforts.
We all gathered at home after that for a late diner and a little family time before everyone turned in.
