The War On Cancer; A Soldier’s Story
Former ABAer, Debbie Fulton (Lavonne) recently visited ABA in Washington DC. When she returned home to southern Virginia she discovered she has breast cancer. The ever effervescent Fulton is undergoing breast cancer treatment in the DC area and is staying with her sister in Landover, Md. A true soldier, who proved a mother’s strength and persevering love during the loss of a son to cancer in the late nineties, Fulton now faces another personal battle – one we’re sure she’ll show the same resolute peace and resolve in. Robert Beatty, a former ABA colleague who broke the story and has been in contact with Fulton said, “Please lift Debbie up in your prayers or thoughts for we all know how devastating the treatment of this disease can be emotionally and physically.”
Well wishes can be sent to:

Captain’s Log, Star Date 06-21-05; Day 2
Well, I’m officially in day two of being smoke-free and the mood changes are in full swing. My workout yesterday was incredible – thanks Freaking Rican. I’m on the patch, but managed to rip yesterday’s off while working out, leaving me (or rather, those around me) vulnerable. Today it’s a new ball game – and a new patch! I’m drinking lots of water, have eaten my Total Raisin Bran for breakfast and am rearing to go. I’ll keep everyone posted on fatalities along the way. Average physical withdrawal time is approximately 3-7 days.
July 16 Coming Along; See You At Watkins Regional Park
Our plans to gather at Watkins Regional Park in Largo, Md. appear to be shaping up. So far over five of our new NYC NotShady bloggers plan to join me on the road to attend the event. Thank you to Angie M. who has managed to help us secure hotel accommodations. Jeanine/Angie: Are you still working on releasing a list to the group on what will be needed for the function? Marcia: We’ll need you to swing by Watkins and access whether we will need to secure/reserve a location. Freaking Rican: What do you think about driving one car – yours? It’s the largest vehicle and we can share the expense. I have no problem driving my own vehicle though. J’Moo: Are you coming? ABAers: What’s the story on your attendance? Will we be graced with your presence?
