Remember how I said that the patients of ACH gives a person strength? I met one of the true hero's today. Her name is Palmer (www.palmerrichardson.com). What a smile! After all she's been through this was her check out day! Chemo -- she's been there done that -- and won! She's a swimmer so I loaded up a few ACH things and ran over to give her something to send her off with. Yep, she got one of the highly sought after ACH beach towels! I told her I'd watch for lime green and pink stuff to come through. Palmer, if you are reading this, you're a hero in my book!
I've been riding quite a bit this week and will be riding in a 40 miler tomorrow (Saturday) in Morrilton. It has a great name! Tour de Oink! My pal Gary told me it's a great festival so if you need something to do this Saturday, The Great Arkansas Pig Out (www.pigout.org) sounds like a plan! I'll have on my ACH jersey during the bike ride. Several folks from around here are riding. It's a "tour" not a "race" which means it will be an all out sprint to the finish! HA!
