Teal Out

Sam Houston State University's Colleges Against Cancer, a student club affiliated with the American Cancer Society, sponsored a SHSU "Teal Out" baseball game to promote SARCOMA awareness and raise money for the ACS.  We were invited to attend, and Joel threw out the first pitch. Between innings the announcer read facts about sarcoma, and they had information about sarcoma at the entrances. The shirts that they sold were teal. The writing said, "Teal We Find a Cure. 2011. In memory of Maura de Souza"
It was pretty cool.

Very neat! The shirts are clever. I'm glad you both were able to go and that they gave information about sarcoma. Love you guys!

Maura left quite a legacy...of love, of hope, of community, and of so much more. I know she would have continued to do great things with her life had she lived. I do hope there is some comfort in seeing just how much and how profound an impact she had in her short yet bountiful life. Her courage and strength and faith continue on in events like this one...

...and in the hearts of so many whom she touched along the way.
