MouseFest Cruise Wednesday - Avon Walk for Breast Cancer
Good Morning from Deck 10 of the Disney Wonder ! It was a rainy and overcast morning but that didn't damper anyone's spirits on our final day of the cruise because we were about to start the most important meet of the MouseFest Cruise.
At 8:00am, about 40 early risers gathered for Deb Wills's 2nd Annual "Walk Stroll, Roll the Plank" against Breast Cancer. The meet was scheduled to be hosted by Deb Wills.
MouseFest Strollers fighting Breast Cancer
Deb, who is a 21 year cancer survivor, has taken on the challenge of raising a large amount of money to fight breast cancer for both women and men. She has done an unprecedented job over the years. Last year alone due to her non-stop efforts and with the help of many AllEars.Net readers and supporters over $35,000 was raised and donated to Avon Breast Cancer Fund.
Sadly, Deb Wills was unable to attend this year's event. But as luck would have it, Miss Dee Vah, a tireless campaigner for raising funds for Breast Cancer stepped in to take Deb's place.
Miss Dee Vah makes her grand appearance
This is Miss Dee Vah's second appearance at this annual event as Deb was unable to attend in 2006 also. May I say, she did a spectacular job of rallying the "strollers" as we made our way around the top deck of the Disney Wonder.
The most exciting moment came before the stroll began as Beci Mahnken from MouseFanTravel.Com presented Miss Dee Vah a check for $1,555. Nice job, MouseFanTravel! Miss Dee Vah had tears in her eyes as she accepted the check on the behalf of Deb Wills for Avon Breast Cancer Research.
Everyone looks on as…

Special Note from Deb: It was an extra special cruise for me as Tim, Katie and I were able to spend some time together. Tim lost his dear wife and Katie's mother, Barb, to breast cancer several years ago. I have dedicated the last several Avon Walks in Barb's memory.
