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?

Gordon in NC, PROUD to be one of the BSA unit singles guys. Sitting here wearing a 1999 BSA Pitstop T-shirt.......almost 20 years, my how time flies.

Okay........that counts even if it's really just a re-badged BSA.

Bring it on brother.

Nah it's a re-badged BSA........Turnip 250's in '72 were just BSA's with some Triumph swag bolted on them.

Now those 441's.........pics or it isn't true.

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.

Good Morning Friends

From Melissa:

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!

God Bless Anna Mott

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.

Sorry for the delay in updates, but I only forward what Melissa posts on facebook.

Anna has recently had bouts of insomnia, which make sleep very difficult for Melissa. Melissa is exhausted , both physically and emotionally.

I recently came across this article. It is a bit long, but well worth your time. I immediately thought of Anna and Melissa. I urge you to read it.

Anna has her MRI tomorrow.

From Melissa:

This young woman of ours (I realized I have to stop calling her my "girl" as she's gonna be 23 in a little over a month) has her MRI tomorrow.

It's quite amazing, really. Initially, we didn't know if she would live days...and now it's been almost 7 years. Sometimes it hits me that we are living on "borrowed time", but, really, aren't we all?

Anyhow, it's quite the miracle that she's now at doing yearly MRI's and I'm not even anxious about tomorrow's. I say that, but then when I have to wait for the call, I'll be holding my breath.

Our family would really appreciate prayers for an easy time for Anna in the machine, with no movements, and a clean scan with "NED".

Thank you, David, for being our personal contact with Anna; you are a faithful friend the likes of which all of us should be most proud of.

...and thanx to one and all that have contributed over the years. As a team, we have helped our Star Player and her family beat the odds.

Anna will be 23 this May!

Time once again for our fundraiser. We have been doing this for 7 years! clap

You have helped Anna with the following:

Prescription Meds
Oral Surgery
Psychiatrist Visits
Horseback Riding
Dance
Travel

I cannot put into words how much this has meant to the Mott family.

No serious health issues. She sometimes has insomnia for days and an occasional stomach problem. Some more dental work on the horizon too. Melissa is working a bit too, and that makes Anna anxious.

To donate by PayPal, send it to me at [email protected]

Checks can be sent to:

David Duke
378 North Peachtree Street
Norcross GA 30071

A recent post from Melissa about her son Aaron:

Sitting in Isaac’s chorus concert tonight, my phone buzzed on my leg. As Anna was home with the girls, I was compelled to check it. It was Aaron.

He tells me that tonight he attended an event/ reading for “The Elixir”, the school art publication that he and his girlfriend Ashton both had their writing work published in, this year.

All their works were judged by a professional poet and Ashton won 1st in prose and 2nd in poetry, but Aaron says all her work was adored and she’s been singled out for her writing talent and gift.

He sent me this photo of her piece and I meant to only read a little, as I was at the event. But as I began, so did the flow of tears and the tug of my heart.

I’m sharing her winning piece with y’all tonight, in the knowledge that it will move you as it did me.
