I cannot believe it is the last day of our fundraiser. Please take a moment to read the following.
In this moment I am tongue-tied as to what exactly it is that I want to say. I know what I want to say, rather, but there is no way this is going to be adequate....
To every single one of our supporters, thank you with all of our hearts. Without your support, we quite literally would not have a roof over our heads, have the means to chop down some of this mounting medical debt, have enough resources to seek out much-needed second medical opinions; or, more importantly be together over the last year during what is proving to be my most challenging cystic fibrosis year yet.
You all gave us hope and showed us an incredible amount of love. Please know that at every turn, every trip to the doctor, each visit to the medical centers, while sitting paying bills at the computer, etc, that we acknowledge each and every one of you out loud. We know just how lucky we are. Even though this is the last day of the fundraising it is certainly not the last day of our family's journey; and, it's comforting knowing we have all of you on our side.
My friend Meredith, responsible for everything from managing this site, setting up the blog, developing the warrior concept, producing the video, to name a few, deserves our overwhelming applause. What she did for me and my family is absolutely incredible and will impact us, positively, for the rest of our lives. If you know her or know of her or see her around, I beg you to give her mad props for what she did for us. When her and I were brainstorming what we should do, in her living room all those months ago, I could have never conceptualized what she ended up creating nor the absurd amount of heart Meredith put in to it. I love you, Mer, thank you.
I'm sending off now. Please keep up with us on warriordefinesher.org. There are many updates to come and we would love the continued interest and support. Today, Saturday August 8, 2015 is my 37th birthday and I haven't felt this good in 16 months!
