Pink Zone, honors, and memories

Feb 12-21 is this year's WBCA Pink Zone and basketball teams all over will be wearing pink and raising money for Cancer Awareness. The charity of choice is the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and this year the UNC home game during the Pink Zone is against NC State on Sunday, Feb 21. While NC State plays for their beloved coach, UNC will be celebrating the recovery of senior Jessica Breland. Meanwhile, I will be honoring a friend who passed last summer.

Courtney D Hester (October 7, 1966 to July 17, 2009)
A Friend, A mentor, A role model, A leader.
A well loved person with a huge heart who will be missed.
And a fighter through a 9 year battle with breast cancer.

Also known to me and in the SCA as Duchess Arielle the Golden, she was the Queen that awarded me my AOA and despite the sickness and weakness of chemo was at the event where I was awarded my OP. Not just for me - that was a busy day and a busy event, but still she is one of the people I specifically remember was there making that day special.
