Good Monday Morning....
Boy, the days seem to run into each other and it just feels like one big long day.....I never seem to wake up to a new day.....it just runs together as one big day....so let's make the best of it as we travel through it and allocate time today for AWARENESS !
Many of you know that I lost both of my parents and my brother-in-law this past year. It was very hard. It's still hard so my heart goes out to those dealing with these kinds of things. So I decided, over a half-sleep listen to a childhood mentor, that I was going to try to make a difference. So I started a non profit organization for Brain Cancer Research! We became official, at least for the first part of it, just a few days ago. It's been so crazy since the thought of it. Found out about 4 friends who have recently been diagnosed with Brain Cancer. Through the internet, I've heard about someone at least every 3rd day.....
On top of all of that, I wanted to find out about the causes in our area. I thought about all the things we fight for. So on May 20th, we will be doing a huge non profit event to just create awareness and have fun at the same time. I'd like to give a shout out to the wonderful organizations already involved in this event.
First there are 2 great women who started Pink Ribbon Gift. They are both cancer survivors and met during chemo....imagine....you can visit their site at www.pinkribbongift.com Then there is Cynthia Walker, who started a scholarship fund for children in the "Arts" field when she lost her daughter to a rare condition that there is still not much of an answer for. You can visit her at www.jan-aischolar.org. We also have the Community Food Bank involved, The Donald L. Perry Foundation, Make a Splash, and Community Quest so far.
This is going to be a fun day. We will have a "shoe" exhibition from the brand new shoe society and even a dollar dance..... So come out and join us on May 20th....you can get details right at my web page at http://www.4astar.com/
Take the time to be aware.......you never know when events will hit YOUR home that you will need others to help you deal with.
Looking forward to chatting again,
Ava Holly Lewis
