Before I ask for help, lemme tell you a story:
So last night was trivia night at Touchdown Sally’s and I had to leave early because my kid had a raging headache thanks to his allergies. (and the music was awfully loud. I’m not an old fogey but there was a table in the back room that wouldn’t come up front with the rest of us to play so Brent had to have the volume turned up to Death Star so they could hear.) So we left after the first half because Ian was in pain.
And we came in 4th place. Coincidence? I think not.
Now for some serious bidness:
Friday I’m walking to fight cancer in the Relay for Life in Bryant. This is a very important event for many reasons, but the main one being, my friend ALL-CAPS KRISTAL. Here’s her story:
My Reason to Relay
My Reason to join Relay for Life is my daughter, and your daughter or son. I had never given much thought to CANCER. My daughter had been a healthy beautiful little girl, she was never even sick. I worried about the normal things, are they eating right, are they progressing, is it time for shots, don’t talk to strangers. I never worried about Cancer; my family did not have a history of it. I thought she had a stomach ache, and it turned out to be a tumor. That is the day my life changed. Your first reaction is WE WILL FIGHT this. We fought hard we went for two years every treatment to fight this we did. The problem is we ran out of treatments. It takes research to find new cures for Cancer, and Resarch takes money. My daughter’s Cancer was Neuroblastoma Stage 4 she was given a 20% survival chance. I want to help raise awareness and money for research, My wish is that another parent never has to be sitting where I was that fateful day, and if they are there I want the Doctors to be able to say, THEY HAVE A CHANCE. And RESEARCH is the WAY.
Kristal lost Katie to this horrible disease. NOBODY should have to experience what my dear friend did. I wasn’t around when Katie was sick, but I’m doing everything I can now to support my friend and help raise money to find a cure. So please… donate if you can. Even $5 will help.
Our team theme is 80s and we’ll be dressed accordingly and walking all night long. I’ll take loads of pics and report back on Monday.
Please help if you can. It could make the difference in another child’s life.
PS: I found 3 more 4-leaf clovers yesterday…the total is now at 14.
