August 12th will mark 10 years since my diagnosis with colorectal cancer. Those who know me may or may not know the cancer journey I have walked since that day. Rest assured, I practice gratitude each day I am still here. I never expected to make it 10 years and now that I am closing in on that milestone I want to invite you to celebrate life with me! Please come join us that day from 2:00 to 6:00 at The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Mobile, AL for food, fun, and fellowship.
I hope in knowing me you also know how much I value youth. I enjoy my time with my children and family, but I have also committed my life to pursuing youth development and empowerment. This stretches from my family into community-related work with kids and youth.
So, as part of my celebration I am hoping to raise money to build a playground for youth at my church. Our fundraising goal for this effort is $10,000. I know it seems like a lot, but I believe it’s possible. Just the idea of beginning this campaign was met with a $1000 starter donation from a family at my church! So, we are already a 10th of the way there.
I would love to report to you at the conclusion that we exceeded our goal!
