I wanted to print a thank-you note from a good friend of Liz and mine. Last race weekend, the Waterford Family really came through, making a dream come true for LIsa. This is her letter--
"Dear Waterford Hills, I wanted to take the time to write a very special letter. I write this because I am very grateful, humbled, and thankful. My name is Lisa. I am 40 years old, and have stage 4 bone cancer. It has been a long life dream of mine to have a ride in an actual race car. On this special July date, my dearest friends, John and Liz, opened the opportunity for me. They made it all happen. They got it together, with all these angels to make it work out for me. As soon as I got to the track, I went in the pace car with Butch Cassidy, who calmed my nerves and made it an very exciting ride. Next, I got better than front row seats to the track (with the help of Liz getting me there), at corner stand 7. Sue and her team were amazing, and informed me of each flag and how the communication works. I was able to watch John win the race first hand. Next, my long time dream came true, with the amazing help of Danny Kellermeyer and his wife. Other new friends that I had just met that assisted, were the Dave Lewis and Mary and Bruce Wentzel. It was extremely hard to get into the car, but it was all so much worth it!! At the end of my day, as I was taking a rest in John's trailer, in to the trailer comes Danny and his wife with a great gift from their hearts.....a signed autographed poster and a breast cancer hat from them. Thank you so much. If it wasn't for all my dearest friends and the angels that have been placed in my life, none of this would have ever happened. God bless all of you, Lisa!"
I would like to let the WHRRI Family know that Lisa's 3 oncolgists (Lisa is an oncology RN herself for 20 years) are having a benefit in her honor next weekend, on Saturday, Aug. 21st.. The benefit is from 5pm to 9pm at Brandon High School, and will have a donation spaghetti dinner, with 50/50's , and auctions that will have a 7 day cruise, 3 flat screen TV's, diamond pendants, and other items, as well as other fun. The proceeds will go to Lisa's medical expenses and her daughter's trust fund. If anyone can make this, it would be appreciated.
