Elle...Parade Princess

You may have heard that Miss Elle was recently in a parade. That she may have even been the star attraction of one group in the parade.

You would be right.

Every year in the Biddeford/Saco area they hold "La Kermesse", which is a week-long Franco-American festival that has music, food, rides, activities galore and the aforementioned parade. The Relay for Life / American Cancer Society had a float in the parade and they wanted Elle to be their special person. And so, of course, Elle became a parade princess. Specifically, she was "Miss Relay Survivor".

Here is the sign that went on the side of the car. Elle got to take it home.

Here is Elle getting her sash secured around her. Beth rode with Elle and got one that said "Caregiver." Unlike Elle, though, she didn't get a tiara. I think she is still bummed out about this...

And here is Elle all set and ready to get in the car. Was there anyone cuter at the parade? I think we know the answer to that...

I don't actually have any photos of the parade in progress yet. But as soon as I do I will post them. Suffice it to say, she was a great float rider, waving to the crowd and winning them over with the total package of cute that is Elle.

So, until then, here is a bonus photo of Elle eating a taco at Costa Vida in South Portland. Enjoy!

Magnificent. There couldn't possibly be anyone cuter in the entire state, let alone the parade!

Hi Guys,

My son Shane benefitted from Neulasta, also from Amgen, to boost his white cell counts during VAC treatment for Rhadbo.

Not sure if it is appropriate for Elle or if it is approved thru your healthcare provider but wanted to offer it up as it is administered just once per big cycle - so far fewer injections required.

Just learned of Elle thru a rhadbo alert and happy to hear how strong she is and how much support you are receiving.

Take care,

Bill King
