Because of one of the news stories about Tiffany and me, our new friend, Becky Kerbel, contacted us to ask if we'd attend Surviving Beautifully in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. She asked that I be the guest speaker. I felt very honored and delighted. I'm sorry that we didn't get more pictures of the event.

It was such an honor to meet Danika - she touched all our hearts with her beautiful spirit.

My "twin" cousin, Twila, attended the event. She was so brave to color her hair bright pink! Our mothers were sisters and our fathers were brothers. We were born less than three weeks apart, so they named us as twins (Ila Kay and Twila May). From then on I was called Kay and she was called Tyke (later on, Twila). It was so special to have her, her daughter, Rebecca, and three grand-daughters there that day.
