I was diagnosed with Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma on July 12, 2018.  The diagnosis came as a complete shock and rocked the world of my little family of four, especially my five year old son.  Soon after my diagnosis, a mysterious balloon arrived on our mailbox with a note for my son saying they heard his mommy was sick and they brought this balloon to cheer him up.  It was signed "The Balloon Bopper."  Each week since then, another mysterious balloon has shown up on our mailbox.  Each week, there is a small prize attached-candy, school supplies for the first week of Kindergarten, a miniature barrel of monkeys, etc.  Sometimes they have notes, sometimes they do not.  The balloons have brought such an incredible amount of joy to our family.  They act as a distraction from the battle we are facing.  The mystery of who the Balloon Bopper is remains unknown.  We hope he or she will reveal him or herself when I finish my treatments.

This amazing act of kindness has inspired me to pay it forward.  I would like to start a Balloon Bopper organization and help brighten other family's lives by mysteriously delivering balloons to other families with small children going through difficult times.

Funding needed for this project would include the cost of balloons, helium, small trinket toys, and gasoline for the deliveries.

I hope to organize our first Balloon Bopper delivery by the beginning of 2019.
