Today we flew into New York. I am here doing advocacy work for the HPV Vaccine, photographing clients and enjoying a few days with Edie Grace and DeWayne in the Big Apple. This trip is part of Edie Grace’s 8th birthday celebration. After an adventurous day of travel we finally arrived. We were delayed in Charlotte and then again in the air because of bad weather which caused them to shut down the Newark airport. The weather is great and tomorrow morning I will be interviewed for a series of PSA’s promoting the importance of the HPV vaccine. I am here at the invitation of PKIDS (Parents of Kids with Infectious Diseases) a wonderful organization founded by a wonderful mom. We had dinner tonight with other parents who will also be featured in this series. Their stories were heart warming and very powerful. I knew tonight that this is a fight I must continue with renewed spirit.
