Team Go Go

I am so super excited to be a part of this great team!! We had our big fundraiser this past Saturday and let me tell you we have some generous friends! Because of the generosity of our friends, we were able to raise over $10,000 in one night. It was amazing to see how everyone came together in the effort to KICK CANCERS ASS! We are still working to meet our team goal. You can help by clicking on the badge.

This is a picture of the front of a quilt I've made out of tshirts that belonged to a former Team Go Go, Jim "Stroke" Sheffer. His wife donated the shirts about 2 years ago for the auction. The person that was originally going to make the quilt was unable to finish it. I hope to get it finished up in the next month or so and get it to the new owner.

I donated my seamstress services for another quilt. I think it sold for about $200. I haven't priced how much others charge to make tshirt quilts, but will be looking into as I've had several request to make others.

Go donate and help us KICK CANCERS ASS!!

New blogs and Relay for Life

My Sister and cousin have both started a blog. They started it about 3 days ago and have blogged 3 times each! They are putting me to shame! Go check out their blogs and leave them a comment that I sent you. Let's see how many visitors they can get.

As many of you know I am raising money for the Relay for Life. I am half way there, but need your help. Our Relay event is just over a month away. If you want to help, visit my online donation page. Any amount helps in the fight against cancer. Let's KICK Cancer's ASS!!

Madyson Klaire

Last week was the 3 year anniversary of Madyson's passing.

I miss and think about her every day. I love to hear MK say her sissy's name. She says, "Maa-son". We have pictures of Maddy up next to the pictures of MK. MK can point at the and tell us who is who. It is so sweet!!

My awesome Mom and Sister sent me flowers at work. It was totally unexpected and appreciated! It made my day a little brighter. Everyone asked what the flowers were for so I got to talk about Maddy. A lot of people are unsure whether they should say anything or ask questions, but honestly I love talking about her. She touched more lives in her short 10 months than most people do in a lifetime!!

About two weeks after Maddy's passing a high school classmate lost her son. He was only 5 months old. Every year as the anniversary of Maddy's death arrives i think of Amy and her family. Davis' death was completely unexpected. He was a healthy baby. I was prepared to deal with Maddy's death, because we had prepared ourselves two different times while she was in the hospital right after birth. Yes it was still emotional. yes it was all of a sudden. yes it was unexpected because she was as healthy as she could be. but we were prepared for her to have a shorter life than normal. hell, the doctors didn't think she would come home with us. We had a wonderful 10 months with her.

As the above scrapbook page says, Madyson and Davis will be FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS.
