Seattle Brain Cancer Walk

Joined Team Chris Elliot Fund (CEF) for the Brain Cancer Walk in Seattle today. It is great to be able to support such a great cause. Team CEF came in second for raising funds to support innovative research initiatives and support services for brain cancer patients and their families.

Lisa Bluhm (Mrs. Pacific Northwest), Tamara Deporter (Mrs. Seattle and board member of CEF), actress Jean Smart (advocate for Glioblastoma awareness and CEF board member as well) and myself - Mrs. Washington 2010.

Chris Elliot Board Members and Supporters
Founder Dellann Elliot is on my left - wife of the late Chris Elliot - what an amazing woman she is !
John "JB" Brace surrounded by Queens as should be! He is now an 8 year survivor of Glioblastoma Brain Cancer!
What a sweet little boy I met today. His name is Jaren and he too has been diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome like my son. I so enjoyed meeting his mother as well - what a wonderful lady!
With the Silver Spurs Mascot!
As you see we had a great turn out at the Seattle Center! The tent of honor is dedicated to those who have been diagnosed with brain cancer. The stories I read were so touching. Above Tamara is explaining exactly how her organization CEF helps to raise awareness and advocate for those affected by brain cancer.

Elizabeth Larsen - Mrs. Washington 2009 - My Hero! Thank you for being our buddy and photographer for the day. You are such a blessing in my life!
