>Those of you who’ve known me for awhile know I lost my dad nearly 7 years ago now to a brain tumor. And those of you who went through that with me know how incredibly dark and horrible those days were, and God bless you for standing by me. For those of you who haven’t known me as long, know that my dad’s illness has had a profound effect on my life, both while he was sick and after he passed.
On July 12, Richard and I are participating in the Race for Research sponsored by the Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation. Lest you be concerned, I’m not running anywhere… there’s a 2K walk associated with it that we’ll be participating in. We’re raising funds for research — as it turns out, there’s been less progress made with brain cancers than with cancers in any other part of the body.
By clicking here, you’ll be taken to my fundraising page where you can make a secure donation to help us toward our goal of $1000. No amount is too small, and every donation is sincerely appreciated. Money raised is earmarked for research into brain tumor treatments.
I thank you for your consideration, and I promise we’ll return to your regularly scheduled fun blog posts soon. It’s just that this is incredibly important to me, so I’m pulling out all the stops to try to make our goal.
It’s just my way of trying to make sure that no other family will ever have to go through what we did ever again. Maybe it’s a pipe dream, but I gotta try. My dad would expect no less of me.

>I’m glad to hear that you aren’t running and we don’t need to be at the finish line with an ambulance. 🙂 Good luck with the walk! And I’m extra proud of you for walking in July.
>Best of luck with your walk. I’m happy to help!
