Lynn Perrott Update
October 11, 2014

Hello Everyone,

Once again I am writing you to share an update on Lynn Perrott. Lynn (very) recently began experiencing abdominal discomfort and bloating, and was admitted to the hospital yesterday. The medical team found cancer cells in her peritoneal cavity, and are proposing an intensive in-hospital course of chemotherapy beginning as soon as possible. As you can imagine, this is a very stressful time for Lynn and her family.

Lynn is such a strong woman, as we have known for years, and as she displayed last year as she recovered from her surgery, infection and chemo. We will stay united and Region 7 Strong to support her through this new challenge. Please keep Lynn and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

Lynn mentioned to me several times this year how comforting and supportive your thoughts were while she courageously rallied back from her surgery last fall and underwent subsequent chemotherapy. I have no doubt that she will feel lifted and supported from hearing from you. Feel free to send cards and thoughts her way. I will keep you updated as I know more.

While Administrative business is not a priority right now in our hearts and minds, we (the Regional Committee) feel it is important to proactively set an interim plan in motion so that Lynn can focus on her recovery. Until further notice, please use the following points of contact for regional business:

Financial: Please send competition fees (with sanction, no scores needed), invoices and any other financial business to Donna Guenther, SAC PA. Checks should be payable to "USAG Region 7". Donna's address is 155 Philmont Avenue, Feasterville, PA 19053 or email somertongymnastics@gmail.com

Administrative business (regional or national): should be directed to Steve Garman, SAC VA at VAUSAG@gmail.com

As always, we will work together as a committee to respond to any issues or concerns.

Thank you all for your support and understanding during this time.

Best,
Linda Johnson

Region 7 Excel Survey Results
May 28, 2014

I recently conducted a web-based survey querying comments I have heard thru-out the season, to determine if they were isolated or widespread concerns.

I appreciate all those who responded, and especially appreciate the comments in the open-ended sections. Please share results with your coaches and judges.

Thanks,
Jane Caruso
