The Story

For over a decade, Lynn has been dreaming of a backyard sanctuary.  She purchased a garden plan at the 2004 Marcy Open School Gala.  Over the years, she has chipped away at the original drawings, adding plants and hardscaping as time and money permitted.

As many of you know, Lynn was diagnosed with breast cancer in the fall of 2010.  After several months of treatment and a period of recovery, Lynn felt well enough to participate in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for Breast Cancer, and return to teaching at Neighborhood Children's House.  In July, 2012, Lynn was hired by the University of Minnesota, who recognized (as we all do) her amazing set of skills and gifts.

In the last few weeks, Lynn has been faced with a recurrence of the cancer and additional treatments.  

Those who love her feel that this would be a perfect time to move forward with the plans for the backyard peace garden.  We're seeking donations with which to purchase the remaining patio stones, trees, and shrubs.  

It is Lynn's dream to sit with many of us, enjoying conversation, backyard shade, and a cool lemonade on a hot summer day.
