Banana meets the Beams. My long-time friends, Bill and Terri just arrived at the kennel. As a student at Cal State Fullerton, Bill was my mentor. During my graduate years we became friends. We later became colleagues and he is now the retired Kinesiology Chair. When I was diagnosed with Wegeners, he was the second person I told (Larry was the first). And throughout my journey up mountains and running sled dogs across Alaska, he and Terri have been among my greatest supporters. I am so excited that they are here to experience a taste of our Alaskan life.
