Yesterday I announced that I am training to run a half-marathon and fund raising to find a cure for cancer. You can read the full post here. I was truly touched by how quickly many of you responded to my request to join me! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Sian Fair has a wonderful series she calls "So this is scrapbooking," where people share stories of how scrapbooking has affected them. Yesterday I had one of those experiences. Scrapbooking is starting a blog and "meeting" people from all over the world on-line. Scrapbooking is meeting a few of them in real life and hoping/planning to meet many more. Scrapbooking is pouring your heart out to your blog friends when your husband is diagnosed with cancer and you world goes sideways.
And scrapbooking is asking those same friends to support you in raising money to find a cure for his disease.
And having them respond!
Thank you to everyone who has responded so far. Thank you to those who continue to keep Paul in your thoughts and prayers, and who support Clara and I in our training, even if you can't or don't choose to financially support our efforts.
Thank you scrapbooking!
If you would like to help us raise money to find better treatment and cures for blood cancers, please click on this link or on my picture in my sidebar. That will take you to the home page for "Team Running for Dad" where you can learn more about our story and donate.
Tomorrow, back to regularly scheduled programming!
