I’ve been with CCD scene June 2010 as an NSO and a skater. I joined the league for a chance to meet a group of women who could take a beating and give a beating back all in love. I had found out I was pregnant, and not wanting to disappoint my teammates, I told each one individually and the ladies ran with it – loving my belly and ready for their “Regubaby.”
We all knew it was a girl and as the months and weeks ticked by our “Regubaby” Coraline was diagnosed with Hydrops Fetalis. The ladies of CCD cheered our baby girl on, supported her with love and that’s an amazing feeling. Though our “Regubaby” Coraline lost her fight to Hydrops Fetalis, the ladies still cheered her on as we released Coraline’s balloons. These ladies are also welcoming me to get back on skates. How could you not feel so much love, inspiration, gratitude to the ladies that have strapped on skates and given love to create the family of Crossroads City Derby?! Thank you CCD.
