Last but certainly never least...The Angels Responsible for Everything:
I have been blessed with such an exceptional group of friends, I love each of them so much I sometimes feel I could suffocate them with my love. To see what transpired from their love and devotion to me and my cause is something I could only dream about. These Angels pictured below are the reason for such a magnificent event and for my sanity. Thank you so much for loving me unconditionally and supporting me through thick and thin...thank you for being who YOU are and for making something that is so ugly and unpleasant, so beautiful. I love you girls so much.

To sum it all up....the benefit was such a GREAT time! I will remember yesterday evening as one of the most positive and beautiful moments of my journey with stupid cancer. I'll never forget the love I felt/feel from everyone. I think for the rest of my life I'll be trying to come up with a way to thank every single person that made yesterday possible, until I figure that out....please know that I am talking about YOU and you personally have helped me get through this process by your encouraging words, hugs, laughter. For all of you that were with us in spirit, thank you so much for thinking of us.
