Queen For A Day

The ladies in sewing guild at Prariewoods are "Queens for a Day". That is the theme for their weekend retreat held January 29th - January 31st! I was on hand to give them tips on "Finding their inner queens" ... they were GREAT students!

Pictured with Bernice and Martha (two members of the planning committee for the retreat). Thanks for allowing me to share my passion for Live ... Learn ... Survive! What a GREAT combination for the evening ~ raising awareness for blood cancers and working on beautiful projects.

All of the ladies really did such a wonderful job at showcasing their "inner queens"!

On Friday January 29th I had the honored opportunity to speak with The Sewing Guild at Prariewoods in Hiawatha, IA. These extremely talented women come together for a weekend retreat that is full of projects that are beyond words! In April, these projects will then be showcased at Prariewoods ... I can't wait to see the finished projects!

American Heart Month Interview with KZIA

THANKS to Scott Schulte at KZIA 102.9 for promoting Go Red For Women on Saturday January 30th's Community Spotlight!

It's time to Go RED For Women! Heart Disease is the number one killer in both women and men. In fact 90% of women have one or more risk factors for heart disease and don't even know it!! After learning about how heart disease runs in my own family, I know how important it is to speak up about this silent killer. Too many women remain unaware. I personally believe knowledge is power. I feel passionate to educate individuals and inspire them to spread the word to friends, family and the community about how to make the right choices every day. Together, WE can truly save lives with the power of our very own voices.

Roughriders Hocky

I geared up for Roughrider Hockey on January 16th! It was Cedar Rapids Roughriders hosting Chicago. The Roughriders brought it home! I had the opportunity to advocate for LLS and I'm excited to say gave out LOTS of information to a nearly sold out crowd!

Pictured above and below with the LLS information booth Ryan set up with met for the game. Thank goodness Ry is always so supportive and feels just as passionate about raising awareness for LLS as I do.

I had the opportunity to cheer on our Roughriders with The Rider Girls ... they brought soooo much energy!

I had the opportunity to present a birthday cake for one special birthday guest in the stands with the Rider Girls and Jared Aarons (KGAN Sports Director).

Who knew the Chick-Fil-A Cow was such a hockey fan?!

Saturday night was also Star Trek night at "The Stable" ... The city of Riverside, IA was present in all of their favorite Star Trek attire to promote their Trek Fest taking place in June. I learned Riverside, IA is the future birthplace of Captain Kirk! Check out their website for more information:
