I met Layne Bonanno at the final YOLO relay race August 11, 2011 in Watercolor Florida. Layne is beautiful, full of energy and passionate about sharing her story to everyone with the message that: Melanoma is preventable. Wear sunscreen, reapply often, wear a hat, and limit exposure in peak sun hours. One of my favorite thing Layne says is, “Peace, Love and SPF”. Your gonna love this girl!~ Leslie Kolovich
I promise…if it can happen to me- a young, healthy, 33 year old woman!! No one is safe! I’ve said 100 times, I haven’t been healthier in my life. If ever there was a time to be diagnosed with cancer…that was it!! Unfortunately it came right in the middle of paddling season. BOOOOO!! I’m sure you don’t need me to explain the feeling I get from paddling, you probably feel the same way. It feeds my soul, and I honestly can say that paddling, the idea of paddling and the yearning to paddle kept me going. I’m not saying my family wasn’t my drive. They are the reason I breath everyday!! I couldn’t have made it without my family, but I definitely relied heavily on my passion for my board!! ~Layne Bonanno
I caught up with Dave today while he was in Natchez Mississippi just 400 miles a way from the Gulf of Mexico! His spirit and passion is contagious! He started his 4th journey of his expedition 1000 on June 20, 2011 at the Source of the Mississippi River for a total trip of 2400 miles! Honored to have him on the show!~ Leslie Kolovich
I’ve paddled over 2000 miles down the Mississippi River now, and I can almost smell the Gulf of Mexico. Less than two weeks to go until the Mississippi spits my Lakeshore River Rover paddleboard Artemis and I out into the sea. Incredible!~ Dave Cornthwaite
