Les Chisum, our father, brother, uncle, son, husband, and friend, was diagnosed with Colon Cancer in 2008. Despite medical predictions to the contrary, he is going strong. We will be walking in his honor at the Dallas Undy 5000 in October.

The Undy 5000 is a 2k run/walk to support colon cancer research. On October 30, 2010, we will be participating as a team at the third Dallas Undy 5000!
