Bea on Fox 5 / Upcoming Fundraisers

I'd like to thank Fox 5 for spotlighting Beatrice on their Good Day Atlanta program this morning. They did an excellent job telling our story in both a realistic and sensitive way. Have a look at:

All in all, I'm having a hard time summing up the experience. Being on the news is an odd thing and to see Beatrice and myself on screen this morning has made me very, very emotional. It's not that seeing it makes our lives any more or less real. It's just that hearing yourself repeat what you know is a sad truth can be very difficult.

But, our lives are not all sadness. We have today and I know that today will be amazing. We're going to visit with Bea's oncologist, which isn't exactly fun. Outside of that we'll play Wii, read books, play outside (it's meant to be a really nice day), draw and do whatever fun things we decide to do. There's not a lot scheduled today, for once, so we can be more fluid than usual.

The Fox 5 Spot indicated that there would be some upcoming fundraisers. Here's a list of events open to the public and that should be a lot of fun for all ages.
