The secret to my gleaming smile is one doctor who is truly extraordinary, Dr. Shane Hollawell. Many months ago I told you that if I was able to run my Princess 1/2 Marathon again I would dedicate it to you. So for 13.1 miles I proudly wore this shirt for 26,000 runners on 2/21/16 to see along with a smile! Thanks to you, Gina and all of the staff who treated me during my road to recovery.”Mary Lou
