Dear Friends,

       Those who give of their time, talent and treasure to help and support others in need are to be honored and acknowledge. This month I salute and honor those who
choose to wear our pins saying, "I am Standing With You" as you go through your cancer experience.  U.S. Army Four Star General (Ret.) Stan McCrystal*is one of those men. Concerned about one of his friends, he took the time to hear the message of our pins and now wears one to honor and to stand with his friend. 

      Our young Champions Skating for a Cure also have shared their time and talents to make this, our annual skating event, very special and I want to thank and honor them. 

    I would also like to thank our donors and sponsors* for sharing their treasure  with us making this event one to remember.

Until Next Time...

Pins and Ice




I honor those who give to others


Gifts from within their heart.


The talented ice skaters that preformed so well


Have given support to My Blue Dots from the start.



These young skaters give their time and talent


To help fund cancer research today,


Our donors and sponsors give their treasure


That will help put cancer away.



I also honor those who think of others


As they move through their busy day,


Wearing our pin says, I'm "Standing With You"


Even though I'm far away.



I am very thankful to know so many


Who give gifts of love and support everyday,


If it's an Ice Show or just wearing a pin


It honors others in a very special way.
