Tee'd off @ Cancer!

Next week is a huge week for the Westra Family.  Dakota Medical Foundation (DMF) and Lend A Hand organization has partnered with The Vicky Westra Benefit committee to host another fundraiser.  Any funds that are raised will be matched by DMF, up to 5,000 dollars!  I'm so honored to be chosen by DMF- there are many worthy and deserving people and to be included as one of them is truly an honor.  If you'd like to participate just click on the link on the form on the right and either mail it or email it to the address above on the form.

Recently some additional events were added to the line-up for the day.

  • Kids are welcome to participate in the morning (8 am) with a paying adult 
  • Lunch will be served from 11:30 -12:30pm 
  • 1:00 pm tee off time for all adult participants
  • Thursday night there will be a social starting at 6:30 pm at Gio's in Moorhead 
  • silent auction from 7-9 
  • karaoke to finish out the night!  

Wow, it'll be a full day of events and activities... enough to keep a girl's mind occupied the way it should be the day before she has surgery!  I'm going to try to attend as much as possible... you can't miss me, I'll be the one shaking in her shoes, waiting for the call that says what time her surgery is... whew... hello courage, please visit soon!

Next week is shaping up to be quite eventful.  I have Monday and Tuesday to get our back to school shopping completed and Colton has to have a cavity filled.  Then  I have a full load of tests to be done on Wednesday, Tee'd Off Golf event Thursday, mastectomy Friday, and by then I'm so going to need that recovery room!


  1. So much for you to deal with ... will continue to keep you in prayer on many fronts. Think of you so often.

  2. Vicky, can we give to the benefit if we aren't attending? is there a paypal or something for it? I got some money for my birthday that I've been wanting to contribute, and while it's not much, it would be great if it could be included for matching funds! :)

  3. Vicky, I'm so glad are 'fighting like a girl'...Best of luck next Friday, I will be praying for you.

    Edmond, OK

  4. A very busy week coming up for you. Know that I am thinking of you, my sweet friend. Love and hugs to your husband and sons....and big hugs and much love to you, Vicki.
    As you recover from your surgery, know that The Great Physician has His arms around you.
    Rest and take care of you, Vicki.

  5. May God be with you every step of the way Vicky. All will be well. Everything will be ok. He WILL give you the strength to go through this and bring you out of this unscathed. Loads of love, luck, strength and courage

  6. You are amazing, with such a fighting spirit! Will be praying for you!

  7. I hope you have a good week Vicky. Remember to get lots of sleep!

    Blessings to you and the fam.

  8. Hi sweet lady...just had to stop by to check on you. This is pretty darn! Sounds like you are having a busy summer.
    I am pretty tee'd off at cancer this morning, my sister has just been told that she has terminal cancer and not long to live. She will be my 3rd sibling to go this same way...I sure wish someone would come up with a cure! Take care and stay happy! :D

  9. Finally! I get to visit you again and see what is going on in your life! Holy moly I have missed a lot in this new baby fog! Very exciting things happening, please tell me you are resting lots to prepare for all of this. I will definitely try make it out to Gio's. I have been thinking about you lots even if you have not seen me on here. Lots of love your way hot mama! xoxo


I welcome what you have to say. Thanks for taking the time to grace me with your thoughts and words!
