I just returned from the Summer Team's Victory Party - a big pasta dinner with a formal program of appreciation, inspiration and motivation.
I'm delighted to report that Nancy, Sean, & Mike are all ready for their race. I've been out the past few weeks and have not heard from Kelly so I really hope to see him tomorrow.
The Summer Team raised over $80,000 for LLS.
Doug Campbell gave his testimony as a both current cancer patient & TNT alumni. I can't even begin to describe the tenacity of Doug. Since being diagnosed with his cancer in 2001, he's undergone four rounds of chemotherapy among other treatments, trained for a full IronMan distance race which he had to abandon with great reluctance, completed a Half-Ironman at the LoneStar where I was able to cheer him across the finish line alongside 22 other Doug fanatic's all of whom wore "Team Campbell" t-shirts, and demonstrated his amazing tenacity again this evening describing his current relapse and ongoing fight. He's a total badass and has an amazing life force which cancer has seemingly managed to inflame all the more. His wife and young daughters are never from from his side.
