Tonight we sit here extremely exhausted physically and emotionally, Ryan and I are literally wiped. Our day today was filled with what felt like a rollercoaster of emotions. From when we got up today to sundown we have been diligently working on plans to take Kass to the Burzynski Clinic.
Fundraiser ideas have been starting to roll in. We were able to speak with many people who are now planning a golf tournament, a cookbook made up of favorite recipes from Kassidy's softball friends, silent auction, garage sale, along with the bike ride, 5k run or walk, rubber bracelets with Kassidy's Army printed on them. Thank you to those who have taken upon themselves to lead these events since it seems that some days we don't have even 5 minutes to ourselves. I will be updating the blog when I know dates on these events.
Also a MILLION thanks to those who have already donated through the paypal button. THANK YOU!!! from the bottom of our hearts. Everytime we received a donation we felt great gratitude for each of you that took the time. We have made great progress, just today we have raised a little bit over $3,000 and this was only done with 20 donations. Imagine what we can accomplish with so many more. Today my sister in law put on her facebook status that if 6000 just donated $5 we would have the initial treament deposit of $30,000. We can do this! We will move mountains to get Kassidy the treatment she needs.
I ask each one of you to please spread the word, we really need your love and support and if you can add Kassidy's blog address on facebook, forward emails, calls or texts we would be grateful. Every little bit will help!
Today we did contact some cancer aid organizations like Candlelighters and Nevada Childhood Cancer Society. They have some great information on different programs which Ryan and I can ask for help as well. We also received a call from Make a Wish they will be setting up an appointment with us to hear Kassidy's wish. A friend suggested we contact them and have Kassidy make her wish while she feels ok most days.
Thanks again! We can't say it enough!
Here is a like to my friend's Don work which he has pledged to donate 100% of his proceeds those that are interested in making a poster like this: * Link is under picture for those who want to order one of your kids, yourselves, etc.
