The Story

Thank you for visiting our fundraiser. This beautiful family consists of my son Matt, his wife Katie and my darling grandchildren. Matt was told he was losing his job last month which means losing his insurance as well. Because Katie is a BRCA 2 carrier, she decided to get her annual mammogram, just to be on the safe side. The mammogram detected 3 masses which were immediately biopsied and came back malignant. Katie has decided, along with her oncologist, to have a double mastectomy on October 31. Your generosity is appreciated.

I've been thinking about how lucky we are today. We've almost reached our goal in less than 48 hours! We are so touched. 

Diego picked Ish by Peter H. Reynolds for his bedtime story this evening. One of the pages summed up my thoughts perfectly. It said, and I'm paraphrasing here:

One fall evening, Katie had a wonderful feeling. It was a feeling that no words or drawings could capture. She decided not to capture it. Instead, she simply savored it. 

Thank you.
