There are few things that scare me in the world. Pretty bold statement, I know. I mean, I definitely do not have an affection for spiders by any means, but I'm still bigger than they are, right? I guess when it comes to fears, the biggest one has been and always will be, illness. Losing someone close to me from something we cannot see, feel, touch. Some invisible to the naked eye, demon from within, which takes hold of an innocent person and ravages them. Since having Gabriella, this fear has become more pronounced. What if something happens to her? Something I can't see...will I even know?
When my running partner in crime & all things fitness, Heather and I realized that this year, TNT would be heading to Disneyland for the Inaugural Tinker Bell Half Marathon, there was no doubt, we were running for a purpose! The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training, raises funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. When I saw the amount of money I would pledge to raise, I thought - Can I do this? Well, I can, and I will, but it won't be alone - I'll need your help!
Feeling more than inspired, feeling like a woman on a mission, and full of purpose, I am working hard on collecting donations. I have been emailing companies for items to raffle. I've been asking people to donate as little as a dollar to make a difference. I know that we can all relate to at least one story of cancer, we all know at least one person who fought the fight of their lives. I know some who have won, and sadly some who did not.
I do want to thank Dr. Pournaras for being the first person to donate to my fundraising page, it means a lot to me to be able to honor your baby boy and I really appreciate your generosity! With all you and your family has endured over the past few years, you deserve nothing less than health and happiness (and we will continue to pray for it). I will also say that he is an awesome dentist, and I'd highly recommend him but then I might never get an appointment if everyone used him..lol
I want to donate!
