Well, here it is....just announced in the November/December 2008 Web MD Magazine. Winter is the youngest recipient in the history of Health Heros. You can also go online to see the online article about her recognition-see right column and click on picture. As you can imagine we are so incredibly proud (an understatement) of what Winter and her brothers are doing. This award has already made 2 million viewers online aware of what Team Winter stands for. One small baby step towards Winter's goal of having a blue ribbon (prostate cancer) to match every pink ribbon (the oh, so visible breast cancer). To see her state her goal in front of 250 of the leading Prostate Cancer Researchers at Lake Tahoe, go to the video www.vimeo.com/2020098
For those who wish to follow Team Winter in more detail (which so many of you have already done) go and join Facebook. There you will find Winter Vinecki, Group- Team Winter and Fan Page- Team Winter. This is where everything related to Team Winter will be published, including upcoming events. You can also get there thru www.teamwinter.org and clicking on facebook.
Michael had his tube in the liver replaced with a larger tube last week to help drain the liver better, which has caused great discomfort as one can imagine. His energy level is wiped out and he has only a few good hours a day right now. We are able to get care for some of these issues nearby so we don't have to run back to Mayo right now.
Dawn, Michael & Kids
