2009, you were good to us!

2009, where have you gone?

It seems like just a few weeks ago we were wrapping up 2008.

Today we closed the year for the Faith, Love, Hope, Win Foundation by making our annual donation to the Prostate Cancer Foundation. I am proud to announce that for 2009 our donation is the same as 2008, $32,000!

To raise that much money, in the midst of this economy makes me so proud of all that have helped throughout the year. Two poker events, a disc golf tournament, the greenhouse event and of course the golf tournament.

I'm a little speechless right now. In just four and a half years FLHW has raised over $132,000!!

We couldn't have done any of it without the help of all the players, sponsors, friends and family.

God bless you all.

Fantastic, David! You and your friends and supporters have done some amazing work. Speaks very well of you and them. I pray you will have a similar post in one year: "2010, you were an even better year to me."

Now if I can get off FaceBook and do some posting on my own blog, I would have a lot of happy relatives.

LEGACY! my Brother. Isn't it great you/we got started on our Bucket List early in life so by our 80's we'll have made quite an impact.

Keep HOPE alive--we only have to run *this* best leg of our life relay because the next leg hasn't even been invented yet.

"We don't know what we don't know". That's a quirky way to come by hope and I'll take it.

Many thanks for all your contributions, David. I just had another firefighter Brother diagnosed--Stage 4 PCa--he's younger than me and on-the-job. We love the fire service, but it doesn't always love us back. Thanks for your warrior-ship on this dicey little adventure with wayward cells.
