Relay for Life is this weekend and you are one of the committee members that has been part of the planning process.
Why is Relay for Life important to you?
Of course its important because Im a survivor, my little sister is a survivor, my mother is a survivor, and Ive also lost family members to cancer, so I see the importance to research. And this is a way for us to raise money for cutting edge research. I mean this is the deep tissue research, and look at whats happening Im living proof. Id love to see cancer go away.
The theme of this years Relay is Seasons of Hope. What is your favorite season?
Summer, absolutely. I love the sunshine, I love the heat, I love warmth. I could just sit in the sun all day long and soak it up.
Whats your favorite piece of clothing?
My pajamas, hello!
If the Peninsula had a uniform, what would it look like?
It would be sweatpants and tennis shoes, or maybe flip-flops, and a casual T-shirt.
Whats your favorite smell?
I guess Id have to say chocolate. Theres nothing like a good smell of chocolate.
What is the trait you detest in others?
Tell me a joke
Two carrots were walking down the road and one got hit by car. When the other carrot was sitting at hospital waiting for doctor to tell him about his friend, the doctor said, I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is your friend is alive; the bad news is hes going to be a vegetable all his life.
When did you last cry, and why?
The last time I cried was when I found out my sister had cancer for the second time.
Where is the furthest youve traveled?
What is your most treasured possession?
My children, I guess if you can call them a possession my children and my grandson.
Whats your favorite book?
Tell me your most embarrassing moment
Theres oh so many! Let me think One time I fell down in front of my boss and a client he had in his office, it was kind of embarrassing. You know those chairs with wheels? I was walking past it and stepped on the wheel and it rolled, and I rolled with it and onto the floor.
