Wendell Foster’s Center Makes “Happy” Video!

We've all heard how amazing the Wendell Foster Center for Developmental Disabilities is, right? Some of you may have even experienced first-hand the positive impact the center has on this community. A friend of mine who works at Wendell Foster emailed me a video that the physical therapy department produced of some of the people who come there dancing and having an awesome time.

While watching the video, Carsyn and I were dancing and singing right along with them. I may have had a tear in my eye too, it's just so heartwarming to see just one part of what the Wendell Foster Center really does.

Take a look and I just know it'll make you "Happy"!

Thumbs Up For Lane Receives 2014 Eagle Rare Life Award [VIDEO]

The entire nation was captivated and joined support for Lane Goodwin during his fight with cancer. I think it's safe to say that the Tri-State really took Lane and his family in during their journey and felt like we'd lost one of our own when he passed.

One of Lane's wishes was to find the cause of and a cure for cancer. His family took this challenge head on by starting the Thumbs Up For Lane Goodwin Childhood Cancer Foundation. Recently, Lane's mother, Angie, and the Foundation received a national award, the 2014 Eagle Rare Life Award, in which they were awarded $40,000! The Eagle Rare Life Award was created to honor individuals who lead rare, inspirational lives.

I'm so proud of them for all the hard work that they have put into this ongoing fight for a cure for childhood cancer. Here is the official 2014 Eagle Rare Life Award Grand Prize Winner video.
