One Happy Cookie

Now is our opportunity to give back. 

Courtney appeared in our lives when we arrived at a local child care facility in Charlottesville, VA .  One of the hardest things to do as a parent is to leave your child and entrust they are going to genuinely and absolutely cared for.  From the first moment we met Courtney (Cookie as the kiddos called her) I knew they could not be in better hands. She has cared for a number of amazing children over the many years she has worked in child care.  Her love of children, animals, BUGS!!, stellar 90's music and so much more means she brings light and joy where ever she goes.  Looking at her you would never see that she is battling Stage 2  Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  The nodes presented in 2016,  but the serious doctor's visits started in 2018; the biopsies were taken in June and the diagnosis finally confirmed.  Having moved away from all of her loved ones to pursue her dreams of living in Boston and working back in the sports industry this news brings it's own challenges.  Far from family and friends, the hope of this go-fund-me is to support her while she undergoes treatment and to support those who can travel to be with her and to care for her on the daily as she heals and recovers.

Other ways to help are book recommendations, photos of bugs, and to mail drawings of squirrels and goats.
