Fox2 News...

Well, we just watched our interview and of course we were all laughing our heads off!!

Seriously--it was a great segment...we would be terrible celebrities, we were all nervous.

Click on here to see the interview.

For our local people....

Right here in this newly painted dining room, we were interviewed by Lila Lazarus of Fox2 news Detroit.

Remember guys, the camera adds 10 pounds to you...

Lila L. is a teeny tiny woman--she doesn't look big by any person she is a shrimp. ( no offense Lila) Chloe our 12 year old was there as well and she's the same height! so glad she wasn't sitting next to me!!

Any way it was a blast and hopefully they air it tonight at 10pm on Fox2 Detroit.

I think you can watch it if you go to and click on health and go from there. Put in Cystic Fibrosis or Rickie.

Simply Beautiful...

No words needed...

Just awe-inspiring!

OK, so I was missing for a while...

Just figured how to download from my camera...I kept getting the message "not ready."
So, I tricked it and put the card directly into the computer and IT WORKED!!

Here are a couple of pictures of Rickie...the second one...he is off to school on his bike for the first time!

You'll be seeing a lot more day to day pictures!!!

She made it through!!!

My mom had surgery last Wednesday, she made it through the surgery!

You see we were a bit worried, as she had a heart attack in June of this year. We are so thankful for all your prayers and well wishes!

OK, so it won't change history YET!

Researchers have been working on a vaccine for breast cancer tumors for 10 years...they now have a vaccine that targets tumors and stops them from growing.

Apparently they're hopeful to come up with a breast cancer vaccine in time. (10 to 20 yrs)

This is wonderful mother is having a mastectomy on Wednesday. Hopefully, she will have available to her the vaccine if more tumors come back via clinical trails!

This is her second round of breast cancer please say a prayer for her on Wednesday...:)

*when this was told to us this morning from a reporter--it was our understanding there WAS a vaccine to prevent breast cancer. Still good news!

This is big people...really big!!

Watch the news today...something that will change history will be announced!!!

Swimming for Cystic Fibrosis..Friday foto Finish Fiesta

As most of you know five brave men committed to swim from Harsens Island to The Grosse Pointe yacht Club. September 4, 2008.

Fox 2 news planned on covering the event...although, there was something more important to cover...the plea agreement of the now ex-mayor of Detroit. So because of this man, fox 2 had to miss the event.

More important, we were there for them cheering them as they came in. Can you imagine swimming for 8 hours? I can't.

When you love your kids... you can do things you'd never think you could do, the human spirit is so incredible.

Congratulations: Ric Geyer, Derek Weaver, Greg McDuffee, Mike Hutchinson, Mike Stevens And a special thanks to Shaun McElroy for volunteering to ride the entire day in the boat, watching out for these guys. He is an EMT.

Thanks again!

Head on over to candidcarrie and check out all of the cool pictures...their has to be hundreds of them by now.
