Because of you this check was written.
The Go Lucy Go Foundation was able to bless another family this past week. This money will help the family pay for travel expenses, pay utilities or even make a house note. All because of you. I may do the leg work (along with some great volunteers) but none of if would be possible with your contributions.
I pray everyday that God would open doors for our organization to grow and become what He wants it to be. Sometimes I feel as if I'm not doing enough, but I have to remind myself to take one step at a time. As we continue to seek God's will, we will keep working hard to raise money to help the families of cancer patients. With your help---we can do so much more.
The next Go Lucy Go 5k is coming up and we are hard at work making it a huge success. Please mark your calendars for Saturday, April 5th. Our goal is 1,000 participants!
On another note, last week we were able to meet up with a precious family that many of you have prayed for. I often talked about Lanie when Lucy was first diagnosed. Lanie had Medulloblastoma just like Lucy. Her family and our family became very close during the following year. Lanie fought hard for about 9 months but at the age of 2 went to be with Jesus. It was a devastation loss for her parents and us, too. Lanie's mom was pregnant when Lanie passed away and has since had another baby girl. It was so wonderful visiting with them over lunch.
When you have been through cancer and the death of a child your whole life changes. We talked and cried as we shared our feelings of anger, hurt and sadness. We also smiled and laughed as we talked about being thankful for the appreciation we have for life now. I miss this sweet family and I oh how I wish they lived closer. I walk through life most days feeling that no one really understands, but they do. On every level they understand. In the most unfortunate way they understand.
Tonight I am thankful for the opportunity I had to reunite with friends that are truly kindred spirits.
