Our family was deeply touched to again be part of the Dance Marathon on campus this weekend! BGSU's Dance Marathon is an amazing one! This year nearly 300 dancers stood on their feet for 32 straight hours and just under 200 cyclists rode 180 miles all raising money for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals! I thank BG for asking me to speak and share our family's story and for inviting Shayla to dance. If you'd like to see the 3:30 minute video clip with my interview and a bit of Shayla's pointe routine that aired on BG24 News, here you go:
Hi! I hope this finds you well! A few sweet bloggers have emailed asking for an update on the show so I thought I should share. You can find it all on ABC Nightline's website, but it was basically a repeat of the same story which ran in November, but with new celebrities Hope Jackson also scammed who came forward as a result of the November airing. The new part is basically Part III of the story. Here is the link to that section if you desire to see it: http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/video/singer-natalie-grant-plays-family-victimized-elaborate-hoax-23117457
|Visiting our NYC friends who also lost a precious little family member to neuroblastoma.|
|Fun getting a lesson from a Broadway performer and a Broadway choreographer!|
|We loved seeing Les Miserables; we are still singing the songs!|
|A very nice visit was had at Solving Kids Cancers - focusing on the three most deadly childhood cancers (of course this includes neuroblastoma).|
|Rock of Ages on Broadway!|
|Shayla's official campus visit at New York University (NYU).|
|Much to our shock and delight our niece was in the city for work so we got to spend a bit of time with her and her friend. SWEET! I'm so proud of my little enginerd! (Oh, I mean engineer!) Shayla said, "I've now been to NYC with my cousin two times!" Yes, indeed!|
