I am sorry to say I missed most of the original posts as they were happening.
Like everyone else I read the threads and was moved by so many things, Courtney's strength of character and incredible attitude. Also the character and attitude of her family, and also by the camaraderie of so many of the members here. No matter how crummy I was feeling I couldn't justify it after reading those messages. It was a touchstone for me, and probably many others, to see how brave and courageous people deal with tough times.
I would gladly fly a flag to show my support. I am not sure if I will be able to cross the lake to attend but will be trying to work that into my summer plans.
