One of my sister Linda’s favorite sayings was to make lemonade from lemons when Life knocks you down.  This is what my team, Drew’s Crew, did last Friday night (and into Saturday morning) by fund raising for and attending the 2010 Baldwinsville (New York) Relay for Life.  We were one team of forty-four.  Drew’s Crew ended up the event as the number two team raising $4,410 for the American Cancer Society to help in research to find cures for cancer.  In all, 684 people participated and raised a total of $48,881!
