Sarah & Spencer Need Our Help Ptbo
But she's going to have to take some time off. Quite a lot of time off.
Sarah and Spencer are not going to be able to afford all of this. All of the expensive treatments, prescriptions, travel, and time off work. They help this community time and time again, in so many ways. It's time to give back.
We love you guys.
Last update from yours truly! Sarah's new (self appointed) handle is "The Wolverine!" Don't mess with her!
She is recovering well from her double mastectomy surgery, and the removal of lymph nodes, etc. - although boy howdy is that a terrible and invasive surgery. If you hear rumours that I as the "supportive friend" wept like a baby or near fainted in Spencer's lap several times, or screamed to the heavens at the injustice of it all, just ignore them, they are blatant lies.
Latest reports are super positive as well. Sarah remains an incredible beacon of positive energy and determination. I am blown away by her strength and her bravery.
This funding initiative has almost run its course. So, if you know anyone intending to still donate - please let them know to do so asap! Of course - We have one more event - The Sarah McNeilly Feely Fundraiser on Sunday June 26th at 2p.m. at The Market Hall. It is going to be a blast! Comedy! Music! and Sarah will be there! At that event, we will take this page down.
HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HAS DONATED!!! I'm going to top it up right now at this point of writing, which will make it $18,000. And I just started tearing up as I wrote that. Unbelievable. Thanks so very very much. xo Em https://www.facebook.com/events/1641580096167047/?ref=1&action_history=%5B%7B%22surface%22%3A%22permalink%22%2C%22mechanism%22%3A%22surface%22%2C%22extra_data%22%3A%5B%5D%7D%5D
Wednesday night we celebrated the opening of our show, and her last night out with her "beautiful rack". And so she took "the girls" on the town.
Anyone who has met Sarah knows, she is the strongest, funniest, bravest person you ever want to run into. Please, let us all muster all of our love, and prayers, and meditation, and hopes, and dreams to help her journey here be as easy as it can be. She has had it hard enough. Please feel free to contact me on facebook for an update on how she is doing. In the meantime - send beams and streams of love and light. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox WE LOVE YOU SARAH!
Some good news - this campaign still seems to be going strong! (it would be amazing if we could double the original target - wouldn't it?!) AND TWO amazing fundraisers have now been BOOKED! Sunday June 5th, at Sarah's own place of work, the Black Horse Pub, there will be a fantastic day of music and celebration. (See poster!) AND - THIS JUST IN! On Sunday June 26th, introducing the McNeilly Feely Fundraiser!! at The Market Hall from 2-5p.m.!! This will be a fun-packed afternoon hosted by members of the Citiots, and with an incredible list of music, theatre and general awesomeness and talent. Stay tuned for details!! Ray Henderson and I are putting this event together, so don't be surprised if we come knocking looking for auction items and other fun ideas to help fill out the day. Onward and Upward!
Sarah gives out more energy and positivity in one day than most of us can summon in a week. Let's see if we can collectively pool our positive thoughts and efforts for her this time. xo Em
I don't want to do her thanking for her. She will be much more eloquent about it I'm sure. But the relief, and the joy, and the love in her face and her body was palpable.
And, to be honest, I just made up that original target out of nowhere anyway. These guys are going to need lots and lots of financial support. I'm not going to change the goal, and double it, as most people do with these campaigns. But let's keep it going folks. Thank you, thank you, thank you. From the bottom of all of our hearts that love Sarah, THANK YOU!!! xoEm
Sarah's story just came across my news feed. Although I do not know her I am a cancer survivor and understand at least a piece of her journey with this unforgiving beast. I wanted to share some info about a potential source of support she may or may not know about. Many blessings Sarah to you and your team and healing for your return to perfect health. http://www.bebraveandbelieve.ca/about/
