Unmasking The Mystery Of FOP II: A Benefit for FOP Research

I just got back from a great weekend in Houston.  My friend Nikki (I met through the amputee community, she is a double below the knee amputee) put me up at her house.  We met through the wonderful world of Facebook.  We always met up each year at the annual amputee conference.  We met another amputee friend, Derrick for dinner Friday evening - and Sunday for dinner we met up with Thomas who is a recent amputee.

On Saturday Nikki, Brock (her husband), and I attended the Unmasking The Mystery Of FOP II: A Benefit for FOP Research in honor of IFOPA member Cody Dennings. Dinner, Dancing and Silent Auction with a Mardii Gras Flair.  

FOPers: Daunte Hernandez, Steve Eichner, me, Cody Dennings, and Nick Mahler
 It was nice to reunite with some of my FOP family.  Cody and his family live in that area; Nick and his wife came in from Dallas; Steve and his wife came in from Austin; Daunte came in from Las Vegas.  There are ONLY 5 known FOP Patients in the whole state of Texas.   

me and the Dennings - Cam, Jen, me, Dave, and Cody
The Dennings did such a fantastic job on this event! The appetizers, dinner,  desert, entertainment, volunteers, silent auction items. It was a fun filled night.  I was so pleased I could come out and be apart of this great cause.  I met so many great wonderful people at this fundraiser.
