Hearts of G.O.L.D. - 1st Meeting

Yesterday evening, I attended a new quarterly meeting at Grace Avenue called Hearts of GOLD (Givers Of Love and Devotion) . It is a time for fellowship, inspiration, and even desert! Last night, Angela Weber was the guest speaker and she told us her story along with kicking off Relay for Life. Relay for Life is supposed to take place tonight and it is a fundraiser program to bring awareness and money for research for cancer. Angela is a survivor of breast cancer and her husband is too. Her husband found out he had cancer about two months before they were planned to be married. Then the day before his surgery, she found out she too had breast cancer. The two of them met in August and by December were engaged. They were planned to be married in April and it was in February before the wedding they found out they had breast cancer. Neither of them had a history of cancer in their family. She gave facts about breast cancer and answered questions for us. She gave the best quote last evening before finishng up:

"You may be only one person in the world, but you may be the world to one person." - Unknown

She ended her story with that quote stating how the reason she gives her personal story is because she may impact another's persons life. Afterwards, we all had delicious Cheesecake Factory Cheescake and it was great! I had a chocalate piece that I couldn't finish and ended up taking it and a few other slices home since there were extras along with a slice of regular chocolate cake for Jeff.
