Pink Thanks

In the spirit of Breast Cancer Awareness month, I want to take this opportunity to thank some wonderful people in my life.

Some of you may know that I am participating in the Breast Cancer 3-Day walk, benefiting Susan G. Komen for the cure. This event will take place here in Dallas a week from today, during which, I will walk (or attempt to walk!) 20 miles each day, 3 days in a row. My mother-in-law, Sara Rostanzo, is a breast cancer survivor, and I am happy to be walking in her honor. I have never taken on such a strenuous challenge, but I have also never had the opportunity to raise this much money for such a worthwhile cause. I have worked for the last several months at raising the necessary funds to participate, and I am happy to report that I have surpassed the minimum requirement. To date, I have raised over $3,000. I could not have done this alone, so for all of you who have supported me, this card is for you:

More specifically, I would like to recognize the following people:

I want to thank my 3-Day walking team. Jazen, Angie, Barb, Jess, Lluvia, Jamie, Stacey I., and Stacey K... together we are called the "Footprints of Faith". We have had some great times together preparing for this event by doing training walks, fundraising events, and just generally supporting each other. Jazen has been a fantastic team leader by keeping us all on our toes. I can't wait until next weekend when we get to do this for REAL!

I also want to thank my AMAZING family - the Guvernators, Obermarks, and Muenks families. At a recent family reunion, they surprised me by taking up a large collection to put me over the top. I am blessed beyond belief to share life with these incredible people. Thank you for your love and support.

And to everyone else who has supported me with a donation, thank you.

If you would like to make a donation
in memory or in honor of someone, please visit

Every little bit helps!
