I posted a few weeks ago about needing ideas for how to help organize the ridiculous amount of treatment related…stuff. I received a call a few days later from Aaron, the owner of Bear Residential Construction in Zellwood. He explained that him and his wife read my blog and have been wanting to do something to help – and that helping with storage was right up his alley! He asked to come by our house the following week to see what space we had and what supplies we were looking to store. I was shocked and excited about the offer!!
Aaron stopped by last Monday, along with Mike from Team Gina. They were surprised at just how much stuff I actually have related to treatment – with more supplies for the PleurX Catheter on the way. They discussed options and thought that a large cabinet would be best, which we have the space for in our bedroom. It would allow us to consolidate all of my supplies, which are currently spread amongst the two bathrooms, a closet, my master bathroom sink and the top of the refrigerator, into one central location. I was giddy with excitement when they showed me what they had in mind and headed out to order supplies.
Aaron called me Friday to let me know that everything was on track and that they should be stopping over to install it today – which they did! Aaron and Mike ventured back over to our side of the town, bringing Tom from Team Gina with them, and with the trailer in tow.
They spent a few hours installing the cabinet in our bedroom. They secured it to the wall, removed the baseboards so that it sits flush and even brought along childproof locks to keep Jacob out. The cabinet itself is amazing. They painted it to match the other cabinets in our bathroom, included adjustable shelves and it has TONS of storage space! It’s…incredible. It’s more than I ever envisioned and works perfectly to centralize all of my supplies – and in a place where I use them most!
In addition to the cabinet that they graciously supplied us with, they asked if we would like to join them for the weekend at the Team Gina Golf Tournament in April. Ummm…YES!!
AND!! We get to ride in the hot air balloon to help with the ball drop for the tournament. How cool is that?!
On top of the cabinet, the golf tournament and lots of laughs with the guys…they also gifted us a very generous donation towards my medical & prescription costs for this year.
To say that I am too blessed to complain would be an understatement. These men have made – and continue to make – a profound impact on my life and the life of my family. They are kind, caring, generous, loyal and funny. I am so blessed to have them in my life. 💚
