Head Over Teal

The Head Over Teal event was a HUGE success!! Over $40,000 was raised for ovarian cancer research and early detection!!! My dad is on the board and said that the expectation was for $10,000, but obviously that was blown away!!

Mom's team was Teal for Toni (teal is the awareness color for ovarian cancer). Dad came up with the name (he was quite proud of himself). Mom's team was huge!! There were people from church, friends, co-workers, and of course family. Our team also raise the most money! Mom was overwhelmed with the out pouring of love from family, friends, and strangers! What a great day!

I made Lucas a onsie that had Head Over Teal on the front and I (heart) GG on the back. Mom LOVED it!! Mom took a ton of pics so I will post those as soon as I get them from her. Thanks to everyone who participated/donated/prayed!

Mom is doing well. Her numbers are consistently coming down. She is going for treatment 1x/month and the weekly for blood work. She is tired, and sometimes doesn't feel the best, but like always she moves forward and keeps her spirits high. Praise God for that!
