2008 Relay for Life

The Buffalo County, Nebraska Relay for Life was held this weekend at Kearney Catholic High School's Miles Field. I was honored to be the event's MC for the second consecutive year. It is always an inspiration to be amongst other cancer survivors, hear their stories and tell them mine. (I am cured of Stage One Colon Cancer.) Our son Jimmy was on stage with me and walked the Survivor's Lap with me and the Caregiver's Lap with me and Kim. This year's Relay has (so far) raised over $85,000 for cancer research, with more donations coming in. One day, we hope to be able to tell our son that cancer is a disease that used to be, but is no longer fatal. With everyone's efforts, we expect that day to come sooner, rather than later.

How to watch the videos on Oh Baby Vision

In the upper left hand corner, there's three horizontal lines. Click that once or twice and it'll bring up thumbnails of all the movies. Click on the one you want to watch and it'll start. It may play the next one automatically, or you may have to click the little box to bring the thumbnails back up.



Now with the addition of more videos, just use the scroll bar on the right to choose the one you want to watch.



I hope you like 'em
