*EDIT*
Some things have changed in her house. She just had to have surgery again - bills are stacking up - their phones and power were shut off - and she is now stuck in the house and far away from germs... the reality of a getaway just isn't in the cards right now... and I don't feel right having money here when they need it so badly. But I want to do one more big push to get as much as we can for her - the first entry is $5 (less after the first one 3 for $10 - etc) - and one winner will be chosen to win a $50 RockerByeBaby Gift Certificate. If we reach over $500 in donations - I will up the giveaway to a $75 gift certificate... and if we reach over $1000 in donations I will giveaway a $100 gift certificate... please help and share if you can... Giveaway will end Sunday night at 11:59 CST - I will then compile all the names and entries and pick a winner.


Around here, we're kinda getting sick of Cancer... (no pun intended) I mean, Im really just over it... A very good friend of mine has been kicking breast cancers butt, yet the hits just keep coming. After chemo, radiation & a double mastectomy - we thought we were in the clear... then it came back... back to chemo and radiation and now blood transfusions, too. She is EXHAUSTED. This woman is literally my hero... no matter how stressed, tired, sick, and in pain she is - you would never know it. She takes care of her three kids with her super hero cape flapping in the wind behind her. Super low blood counts and begging to go back to work... *Or like the photo - walking in the Mother Day Breast Cancer Walk* But, lately - she has been talking about relaxing on a mini trip... and ya know what? When a mom that doesn't ask for help asks for help - you drop what you're doing and you find a way to help... So that's why I am here... I want to raise as much as I can so our friend Kat and I can give her a break. Maybe a night or two in a local fancy hotel with a massage and pedicure... maybe a short week on the beach in between treatments if you guys are feeling really helpful! If there is anyone in the world that deserves it - its this mama, I promise you. If everyone would donate just a couple dollars we could give her such an amazing trip that she has more than earned. Doctors orders are to rest and relax - and this seems like the perfect way to be sure she does that. Anything left over will be given to her and her family to use towards her medical bills. I appreciate you taking the time to read this and thanks in advance for your selflessness and generosity.
