Thank you to my loving wife Jodi, all participants, sponsors and volunteers, and a special thanks to Dr. Walter Rho of Orlin & Cohen. Dr. Rho saved my arm as I took a bad fall and he restored my arm to just about perfect. Bridge Rehab of Long Beach did a great job on the therapy that was prescribed by Dr. Rho. Dr. Edward Fryman also helped me out with my tendonitis.
