Greetings to all you Outlaws!
Wanted to let everyone know what we have been up to. The Original Outlaw, Shannon has been very busy of late. First, a few weeks ago she was on the prominent radio show of the famous Doc Gallagher ( of Zig Ziglar fame). Doc has a very large following as he offers unique and timely financial advice as well as current talk as to what is happening in our world. Shannon did a great job and we have had very pleasing response from her appearance. I am sure this will not be the last time our Original Outlaw will be heard on the air waves.
Shannon and I were graciously invited to attend the Ft. Worth Breast Cancer Symposium at the Modern Art Museum on April 9th. It was a wonderful experience. The speakers were informative and entertaining. They covered everything from genetics to sex! Yes, I said the "S" word, even I ( old Outlaw Mom) learned a thing or two!
The Pink Outlaws had a fabulous time at the Relay for Life this year in Ft. Worth. The Outlaws raised more than $5,000!!! I have put a few pictures of this amazing event here on the blog and will post more on the picture page this week. Take a look and see how much fun everyone had. Some of the events were so amusing and brought smiles to all the faces and others brought tears from the heart. We thank everyone who helped make this years Relay such an overwhelming success.
Now, for some really exciting news---Shannon has been chosen to sit on a panel for the Department of Defense Medical Research Team on breast cancer in Washington D.C. She and I will be leaving for the Capitol the first of May. We are both very excited about this opportunity. She has a load of reading and studying to do before the panel meets. This is not going to be an easy assignment , but one which she is more than able to handle. I, will be involved in some very heavy history lessons! When Shannon has a free minute, I will be ready to be the tour guide. We will be wearing our Pink Outlaw shirts all over D.C. and will certainly try to get a card through the gates of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!!!
The Pink Outlaws were very blessed and privileged to help a cancer victim purchase an airline ticket to his home so he could say good-bye to his children. His prognosis is not a good one and he is now on hospice. He was so thankful for the help, but we were the truly blessed ones. This is what Pink Outlaw is all about. Paying it forward. We are hoping to be able to make greater differences in more lives in the near future. We thank all of you for making this possible.
So, I will check back when we return from D.C. and share photos and memories with you. In the meantime smile and know you are loved.
