Ob......I had to drag my feet too. Committing to helping my son finish school has tapped me out this year. Had to wait for my Xmas bonus to come in. You know EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS........it doesn't matter how much you give it's just the fact that you care enough to do so.
Here's what I got today............I'll match (up to $500) any TRIUMPH owner/rider's donation today and tomorrow. Some of you guys out there REALLY don't like me so here's your chance to see me bleed (money). I have changed my mind over the years about Triumph owners.....thanks to Greg, Mike, Richard, Dick and Mr Healy. ( to name a few of my misguided friends)...BUT I've ALWAYS KNOWN BSA owners/riders are simply the best.....there's no question there.
Challenge on.................................anybody wanta step up to the plate?

A recent post from Melissa
When Anna giggles to herself and I ask her why and she replies, “Because I’m just so happy, Momma.” In those rare moments, my life is once again complete.

We have about a week left before in this fundraiser. Please consider donating. It all adds up, as you can see!
I was waiting on the elevator at work tonight and for some reason, it popped in my head that this year coming up is 2019 and that means Anna will be 7 years out from diagnosis. The magic number is always 5, because if you make it that long, you’re considered “cured”. But she’s not cured. Because her teeth have nearly fallen and rotted out from radiation so we have to continually work on them. And now her heart has to be monitored for damage, and she’s been in menopause from the first dose of chemo and we have to watch for secondary cancers caused by all the treatments. So after all this raced through my brain today, I came home and saw this stat on the internet: the five and ten year survival rates for all brain tumors are 33% and 13.5%. She was stage IV at diagnosis. Talk about a jolt of fear. Wow. I almost lost my breath on that 10 year stat. Cause, ya know, we are on this side of that now. But I stopped and reminded myself that He has had Anna in His hand the whole time. And she will not live one day less than He already had ordained for her...stats or no stats. Cause doesn’t His word say we all have an appointed time? What a perfect time to be reminded of this, as I begin to begin another New Year. Whatever we are anxious about tonight, or whoever we are anxious about, we can trust Him with it. He has a plan already. We don’t have to figure it all out.
Total raised to date is $4,470. If you plan on helping out, I need your donation NOW. We are planning on meeting Anna this week!
Y'all step up, do what you can please. I can once again state that while the impression one might have with the high fallutin' ballet dancin' types couldnt be farther from reality. These are salt of the earth folks, put into a horrible situation. I have been to their modest home, and experienced just what one would expect from a fine family. A warm welcome and a full appreciation of the help they receive while enduring the aftermath of something you wouldnt wish on your worse enemy.
All with a smile and warm friendship. Please help, even a little, it DOES add up.
