The Story

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for the 10th Annual Lungleavin Day Celebration !! 10 years ago, I lost my left lung to mesothelioma and I've spent the years since celebrating the day I got my life back, and using my story to give others hope, and helping many who find themselves with a meso diagnosis.  We wanted to give back to the community that is such an important part of our lives, so Cams and I started using Lungleavin Day as a way to raise much needed money for research and asbestos education. To date, we've raised over $18,000, BUT that is just the beginning. .This year, my 10th year surviving the cancer I was told I wouldn't survive, we want to raise $10,000! We can't do it without your help. Any amount you can give helps and if you can't give, just share .. that is just as important !! All of the money raised will go to The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO.us) and The Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (curemeso.org)
Thank you ALL for the support and most of all the love. Love Beats cancer :)

ON LAST POST!!! This is it, the final push to the end... I'm wrapping up the fundraiser on the 29th, which also happens to be Rare Disease Day... fitting since Mesothelioma is considered a rare disease.. 
So far, I'm pretty sure I've surpassed the $10,000 mark with the online donations, and the party, but I won't know for sure until I add it all up.. If I do, that means each organization gets over $5000!!!!!! I can't thank you all enough for your help.. your generosity and your support... I'm humbled and touched by it all... Let's blow this thing up for one last push!!!! Share or give!! Even $1 helps!!! Thank you all!!!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!!

We are SO Close to our goal!!! I know on here it says only $5700, but with the proceeds from my raffle and the party, we are much closer to $10,000!!!  OMG! When I set a goal of $10,000, I was so hoping we would get close, but this is within reach!!! Thanks to each and every one of you for your generosity and your sharing!! Keep it up! It's working.. We are less than $500 away from the goal!!! EEEEEK!!! LET'S DO THIS!!!!!

Well the Lungleavin Day celebration was a GREAT SUCCESS, and my home is still not back to normal.. the shards of broken plates sit in the frozen ashes in the bonfire pit.. the few remaining plates are still stacked on the table, and there are still a few t shirts and sweatshirts left.. but all in all, we are thrilled with how things turned out. We decided to not wrap up fundraising until the end of the month, so there is still time to donate and to share.. I'm almost halfway to my goal!!! Only $29 away from $5000... surely SOMEONE out there can push me over the 5K mark???  
Tell your friends, tell your family.. Or if you want any limited edition shirts or beanies, let me know !! I'm all sold out of small and medium sweatshirts, but still have large, xl and xxl... I have all sizes in the t shirts, and a few of the fleece lined beanies left... Just send me a message here, or on Facebook and I can help you with the shirts!!! They are seriously the most comfy shirts and sweatshirts I've ever owned. 
Thanks again for all the help and the shares!! But lets keep it going!!! February isn't over yet! And my goal isn't met!!!  I NEED your help... and after February 28th, you won't hear anything until next year :) hahaha 
Love you guys!!!
