Pep Talk from Coach Beez

As most of you know by now, my surgery is tomorrow morning at 7:30 am. 

I want to share with you the pep talk my friend Matt gave me:

 just wanted to give you the ol pep talk ( i am a coach you know ; )

” Listen up! That team in the other locker room is here to kick your ass. They think that because they surprised you the first time, that they have your number. Little do th…ey know who the f*** they’re messin with. You’re not layin down for nobody. You’ve worked too damn hard, been through too much shit to lose when it counts. Look at me!… are gonna go out there with only one thought in your goddamn head: ‘

 No matter what you throw at me, I will push back double. No matter what happens in the game, I will keep fighting and fighting, because there’s no way in hell I’m losing.

When that buzzer goes off, I will have kicked your ass so bad,


Thank you Matt! 
I will not let you and my team down.  And, when all is well and done, you will all be patting me on the ass saying,
“Good Game Girl, Good Game!

    Deanne…I want to be just like you when I grow up! I am 44 so not sure if that will ever happen :) I am the team captain of a group of girls in Atlanta and we are doing the 2 Day Atlanta Breast Cancer walk and we are on a mission to make a difference. We had a fundraiser today and I was thinking about you as so many of our friends came to support us and the cause…..Sending good vibes from Atlanta as you Kick BC’s ASS!

    I have a friend who currently has breast cancer and she was telling me about this site. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it was you. I used to know you in my former life (Phoenix years circa 1993-7) and was married to Julie Beavers for a cup of coffee.

    I just want to say that I wish you the best of luck in fighting this hideous disease.

    You continue to totally amaze me. I have tried and tried to think of something
    wonderfully cleaver to write to you, but all that comes to me is that I believe your
    spirit and fantastic attitude will get you through this! As a “recovering Catholic” also,
    I did learn how to pray and I do often for you.
    Love you bunches Honey,
    Aunt Marilyn
