This is a post that’s very difficult to write and I would very much appreciate your help.
Just over twenty-five years ago, one moment changed four people’s lives. In turn, it also changed eight others – our parents. “On the first day of kindergarten” (as we like to say) four little ladies met and are still incredibly close. Throughout our twenty-five year friendship, our families have all become conjoined. The door is always open to each other in any of our homes. One big ole family. I think it’s safe to say that we always felt like each others parents took us all under their wings in this tiny Vermont town. We are all pretty lucky.
As we all know, life isn’t always bells and whistles. There’s up’s and down’s that help us to really put life in perspective.
In 2011, one of our mom’s was diagnosed with colon cancer. Since then, she has undergone three chemotherapy treatments and is now on her fourth. Her first two treatments were successful and she did go into remission for some time. Most recently, the cancer has returned and spread.
During this same time, my same friend’s dad began having problems with his legs and is barely able to walk. It was questionable as to if he would be able to walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding two months ago. He has had one stint put into one leg and is awaiting to have a bypass done in the other.
These two people have always opened their door to me (and numerous others) and have treated me as a member of their family. They are generous, hold endless fun and have a great sense of humor. Never asking for anything in return.
Now more than ever help is needed and you too have the opportunity in making a difference. Their daughter has set up a fundraiser to help raise funds to assist in their care and treatment.
It just takes that little glimmer of light to make the biggest difference in someone’s life.
Please consider making a donation in assisting with their care. Sometimes a small donation is the best way to say we care and provide that ounce of hope on a dark day.
For any donation $90+, I will provide an hour photo session free for you and your family (including a disk with the high-resolution, edited photographs). Just mention the donation in the request.
During this upcoming holiday season, please cherish the moments with you and your loved ones and help this incredible family have a few more moments of their own.
Thank you and please consider donating today!
