At the 40 Days for Life National Gala featuring Vice President Mike Pence, we celebrated how God has responded to YOUR prayers and sacrifices to save lives, heal hearts, and change the culture.

We also paid tribute to our dear friend, former Planned Parenthood manager, and 40 Days for Life Director of Outreach Sue Thayer, who passed away in December after a courageous battle with cancer.

With three of Sue's children in attendance, we honored Sue, presenting the newly named Sue Thayer Leader of the Year Award to Marietta, Georgia campaign leaders Suzanne Guy and her daughter Rachel.

Check out Shawn Carney's talk from the gala, PLUS the powerful award presentation in this video.
