My Story

The reason WHY I'm participating in this amazing fundraiser.....

An inspiring love story that started in 1989 while two amazing people were attending a Photography Class together.  

When my Uncle Denny met my Aunt Lanee he knew there was something "special" about her! They became best of friends and were later engaged that year.  The sparkle in their eyes told their LOVE story.  They went on to get married on May 20, 1995 in South Lake Tahoe.

In 2003 there were signs Aunt Lanee was having that took them to see her Doctor.  These signs and issues would continue to get worse to which it lead to her official diagnosis in 2004. 

The diagnosis wasn't what they had planned for their future but they were in this together.  

My Uncle was her primary care giver and was by her side each step of the way.  Unfortunately there became a time where he wasn't able to take care of her daily needs so she was moved to a "Memory Care Facility".

Even though he wasn't able to be by her side every moment of every day he visited her daily.  I remember talking to him after one of his visits and he went on to tell me how he just gave her a manicure and pedicure.  The LOVE they had for each other was priceless and unique!! 

Aunt Lanee fought a long tough battle that would eventually take her from us on April 15, 2013 @ 7:55pm while my Uncle Denny was by her side.

May 20th, 2020 would have been their 25th wedding anniversary so in my Aunt's honor and the honor of their LOVE story I'm raising money.
