Tonight I had the honor of gifting a key to my friend Casey. October 1 will be the year anniversary of her 3 year old daughter's cancer diagnosis. Casey has been so beautifully courageous throughout this fight against pediatric cancer. She has raised enough money to bring music therapy back to the children's hospital and redo the treatment rooms. Most importantly she has made me feel like I could slay the biggest dragon on my worst day.

I am so proud to know a courageous warrior like Casey... a fighter... a champion... someone who gives back...who has never questioned "why me" but instead asked "what can I do for others". Her example is the bar we should all strive for.

Love you Case for being exactly who you are courageous.”
