We would like to take a quick second and thank a few people tonight! First of all I would like to thank those of you who have donated to the Lunch for Life project (there is a link to the right). Nearly $500 has been raised in Charli's name to go towards Neuroblastoma research. You can not imagine how great it makes us feel that people are doing this...so thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Our second item of business is very exciting. My cousin and his wife, Ron & Jody Sherwood, did an amazing job spreading awareness last week. They submitted one of my blog entries to the "Maple Lake Messenger" in Minnesota. To make a long story short, Jody was hoping that they would write a small bit about childhood cancer and raise awareness in the area. The person she spoke with let her know that she would try, but that space is hard to get by. Cutting to the chase, somehow a miracle happened and they magically (by the hands of God!) had enough space to publish the entire "article". It took up nearly an entire page, talk about an amazing article. (it was the entry "How we got here" from a few weeks back) We received our copy of the paper over the weekend, and it is so moving to see our story out there. It means a lot to us that Ron & Jody thought to pass our story along, and the fact that they did it in such a huge way is even more amazing. I can't put into words what this means, so I should stop blabbering!
Enjoy the pictures!
