June 19, 2011, an exact month since our lives were changed forever in an afternoon when we were told OUR little girl had a brain tumor. Words that a parent never wants to hear! Every morning we wake we wish we could wake up from this nightmare. Getting up and facing everyday is hard enough, but we all unwillingly get up and put our best foot forward. We have one goal in mind and that is to find a way!!!!!
This weekend has been a great start, we have raised an amazing $18,000 so far today! Unbelievable!!! Thanks to all of your help, through Kassidy's army, you all have made this possible. We can't tell you how grateful we are, I know I keep saying this, but we truly are. That deep pit in our stomachs we feel most days are now filled with joy and hope that this is possible.
We are more than half way there to our first goal of $30,000 JUST to start treatment; this like I said before, this figure does not include the monthly treatment costs and it's a small part from the whole picture, but as you can all see we know it's possible. We have achieved this without even the events that are being planned or cookbooks, bracelets, garage sales etc that have not even been held yet.
One of the most touching acts of kindness we experienced this weekend was from our old neighbor, Sam Hart. Sam is a 20 year old college student whose 21st birthday is soon. This selfless and giving young lady decided to make an event on facebook and forfeit all her 21st birthday gifts and have everyone donate towards Kassidy's efforts instead. Thank you Sam, we love you! Here is a link to her event for those who want to read and help: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=131438193601909
We have a ways to go, but we know in our hearts it can be achieved. We welcome all your ideas and love to hear them. Here are a couple of events already in the works right now that you may want to be part of:
