I am so blessed!

Wow! I feel so blessed right now. As most of you know, I started fund raising for the Great Strides walkathon last month. I sent out a message to all of my friends on Facebook including people who I haven't talked to since elementary school. I did not really expect a huge response, but my friends came to my aid with flying colors! I made my goal $1000, and I was not even sure that I would be able to get that much. It has only been a month since I asked for donations, and I am already very close to hitting my goal! Through my Great Strides website, I have received $660! I also have two checks that were sent to me; one for $100 and one for $50! That brings my total to $810!!! That is absolutely incredible!

To those of you who have donated, thank you so much! I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your help. Also, be expecting a thank you note with a total amount that my team raised in May! I am blown away by my friends' generosity!

If you are interested in making a donation, just click here. Thank you so much for your help, and please know that no amount is too small! Almost 90 cents from every dollar go straight to funding the research that will find new treatments and maybe one day, a cure.
