Last Summer Lacey Glazier participated in the  Saddle up for St. Jude’s trail ride Fund Raiser organized by Lona Patton. Lacey had been going through treatment for Ewings Sarcoma a type of Bone Cancer. Just days before the trail ride Lacey underwent an operation on her spine to remove newly formed tumors.

Lona was reluctant to let Lacey ride but after some convincing from Lacey’s mom , Lona put her up on Metawa, her  mustang gelding from Adobe Town, Wyoming. Metawa sensed the condition of his 17 year old rider,  now riding in a special brace covered with butterflies.  Metawa,  took special care of Lacey during the ride.  It made for a wonderful memory for all involved and helped raise money for a wonderful cause.
