First off thank you to the Dance Marathon committee! Thank you for all the time and work you put into the Dance Marathon this year that raised over $70,000 for kids like our David who received chemo and radiation at UVA Children's Hospital. I know your plate is full with classes and preparing for your future. You carved out time to not only raise valuable funds, but you gave us a day of fun that we will never forget.
Thank you for playing with our children yesterday and letting them have a day of fun away from clinic and the hospital. Thank you for welcoming our children with love and a kind smile whether they had hair or not.
Thank you to Krissy Pitts, a fellow cancer Mom to sweet Anna, who choreographed and taught the families, doctors, nurses, and kids a special "flash mob" dance that we surprised the Dance Marathon students with. I am feeling pretty confident that we totally rocked it.
Thank you Dr. Belyea for your continued care and compassion. Not only do you and your wife have the CUTEST twin boys, but you are a fabulous physician. You patiently answer all my "what if" questions and it truly stressed you Friday night to call me with those iffy labs. Your heart is gold Dr. B and we are so thankful for you and all the doctors that care for our kids.
Thank you UVA football quarterback, David Watford, for allowing David to school you in some hoops and for letting him coach you on how to win next year. Here he is giving you a lecture on how to score touchdowns. We will be cheering you on next season just as loudly as you cheered for our kids yesterday.
