There are those of us who fall on tough times. Whether we do it to ourselves or it just happens out of the blue.
It's when those bad things happen in life, you find out who you can lean on and who you can trust in the blink of an eye. You also find out who disappears from your life in the same blink of that eye. I have come across both in my life since finding out on March 3rd, 2014 that I was diagnosed with Grade 4 Glioblastoma, a fast spreading and aggressive type of Brain Cancer.
This affected my whole family. And since then I have had friends, family and even people I don't know come to our aid. Things like phone calls, tweets, facebook messages and cards have flooded in and made me feel so good and even cry. We have been given food, gift cards, cash, CrossFit shirts, and even visits from friends who came from Ohio and Canada. All of these were a reminder that people do care about others.
During our first visit to MD Anderson, we learned about a 5K called the Brain Power 5K. We automatically wanted to do the 5K and found one that was close to us. The Brain Power 5k 2014 in Cedar Park, Texas is an event used to help raise money and bring people together in support of Brain Cancer research. T and I set up a TEAM SCOTT page where anyone can register and join in with us on September 7th in Cedar Park, Tx. or you can easily donate as well to anyone on our team. After setting up the team page we decided that we wanted to have something special for all of us that were doing the 5K and those who are great enough to support us no matter where they are.
When T, the 4 C's and I moved to Texas at the end of May we were fortunate enough to meet a select group of individuals that we have known and talked to for months and years, but never got the chance to meet in person. We all share a connection and special bond in more ways than one. Family, CrossFit and the betterment of life. One family has gone out of their way to turn something so bad into something so special for us and many more.
That brings in the Brooks Family. Bobby and his wife Kristy are two awesome people. Bobby who many know as RealDoubleBee in the Social Media World specializes in Online Marketing and Strategy and Kristy is a genius in Graphics Design.
T and I wanted to do t-shirts that would show how we all were part of Team Scott. Bobby and Kristy came up with some ideas and designs for the shirts. T and I loved the ideas and then the wheels started spinning. Graphics were texted and emailed. Then it was settled. This is what we decided to run with.
