My brother, Adam and his wife, Margaret and members of their family have been involved in this event for almost a decade (actually, VIII years but who's counting) for sadly familiar reasons that we can only hope someday will only be a memory as we work to make cancer history.

It was quite a drive for us, and we're not the only travelers and I suspect our journey wasn't anywhere near the longest, but it's all well worth it for the cause and the people involved in it.
There's a long way yet to go and all that's been made is a start. But we've come a long way; it's been a long ride. We've come a long way to be here tonight.
