I asked earlier about wanting to participate in the Metsquarade. Unfortunately, the event itself is a bit too big for me and if I wanted to do it the same day, I would be limited on time. After many discussions, it has been decided that we will hold a fundraiser to assist with expenses related to treatment, side effects and all the fun things that come along with it.
So, SAVE THE DATE! The event will take place on April 1st – my birthday!! What better way to celebrate another year of this wonderful life than to be surrounded by family and friends in celebration?! My sweet friend has a local venue in mind to host the event and has already contacted them. Though we have that venue and a few other local breweries in mind, if you know of a space that you would recommend or that would be willing to donate their space, please let me know! AND a super talented local singer songwriter will be providing great music! YAY!!
I will absolutely need help along the way (including phone calls and a bit of running around) so if you are still interested in helping, please send me a message. 😊😊😊
After my last post, I received a few questions about donations. I’d like to do a raffle, so if you happen to know anyone or any businesses that would be willing to donate an item or two to the raffle, that would be awesome!! One of the amazing women who follow my blog asked me today if she could put together a gift basket and mail it to me prior to the event to be raffled off! Near or far, you can still participate in the festivities! Please feel free to spread the word, I am sure it will be a fun, fabulous night!!
Thank you ALL for your love, support and kindness during these days. Though I had hoped to leave cancer behind me in 2016, the reality is that it will never leave. It is a part of me and who I am. I am choosing to make the best of it, the live with the realities of this disease and embrace every wonderful moment that I have on this earth. Every single one of you impact that – and I am so blessed to have you all by my side throughout this crazy ride.
