Friday Freebie: Meet Michelle Northcutt
I have been with the North Texas chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for almost seven years now and have been in charge of several events in that time span. But none of them compare to the Saint Valentine’s Day Luncheon and Fashion Show (website) that is going on 30 years. Having an Apparel Merchandising degree makes this type of event right up my alley but it’s not all about the clothes. The Spirit of Tom Landry winners each year are my favorite part of the show. The Spirit of Tom Landry award honors a youth (through age 20) with courage, integrity, dignity and dauntless spirit who has battled blood cancer through personal experience OR who has volunteered extensively on behalf of others who suffer from blood cancers. This year’s recipient, Joshua Cobler, is a wonderful advocate on behalf of his brother Jude. I encourage you to visit this website and read more about Joshua and Jude’s journey. Both will be honored at the upcoming Saint Valentine's Day Luncheon and Fashion show on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 at the Meyerson Symphony Center. Visit the event’s website at www.saintvalentinesdayluncheon.org to learn more. I hope to be out of this job one day as we have found the cure for blood cancer’s and my role here is no longer needed.
