Last Thursday, all the Lowe’s employees in his district – 2000 strong – ¬†dressed out in blue to show their support for Charlie and what he is trying to do: make others aware of the importance of early colon cancer screening. When he got out of surgery and was ‘coherent’, I showed him these pictures, and he just started crying…Here are a few pictures we were sent that day; it was so touching and powerful to realize how committed they are to raise awareness..bless you all for your kindness and willingness to do this for a fellow employee….

The day before, his manager was so tickled to send him a picture of the new Colon Cancer Awareness Orchid… the most beautiful blue I have ever seen on a flower… it is breathtaking!

this is just gorgeous!

These are the employees at the Deland Lowe’s.. I am digging the tie dye!

The Winter Garden store looking good!

And this is Charlie’s store at Sand Lake… hmmm. who’s minding the store??!
