Let Us Remember Them

Okay for some of you that knows and may not know I am doing a super crazy important walk this next Sunday June 6th.
I am walking this year in the 2010 Susan G Komen Race for the Cure in the Pugget Sound.
I am walking  as part of a three piece group the Lets Play Mamas. Walking with my good friends Kara & Mindy but among thousands of people for this cause.

We all Walk for our Mothers, Grandmothers, Aunts, Sister, Cousins and Friends!!

Several years ago I walked this with my Sister and it was so inspiring. I felt a great deal of humility that I was fortunate to be healthy. I want to remain this way. But for the people who have been effected by Breast Cancer this event is a whole different story.

This year I set a Group Goal of $300.00 that would = 2 mammogram and hopefully save someone’s life. In the beginning I was worried if I could raise $60. But I set a personal goal of also $300.00. Well as a group we’ve so far to today’s date raised $775.00!! I personally have raised $400.00!!!

I myself am also walking for strangers to me in the one great meaning -Remembrance.

I was inspired by a Mom whom I’ve never met in person but who joined me in this cause. Thank you Lisa. So because of this I am collecting names. Names of Women who have been affected by Cancer.

The Honor is all mine to walk across the finish line with the names of these brave women.
Some who didn’t get to the finish line or the Ladies who are at the beginning of their journey and also the Women who persevered through and beat it!

So far I have gathered these names that I am proudly writing on my shirt:
  • Johanna " Honey" Stout
  • Donna Fleck
  • Betty
  • Shirley
  • Sue
  • Marjorie Covey
  • Meg Buttler
  • Courtney Young Winderweedle
  • Betty Aho
  • Anne Marie Bodoria
  • Aggie Sansone
  • Lynn Brown
  • Adie Duplantis
  • Monique Chavez
  • Winifred Parkes
  • Ellie Nist
  • Norma Masterson
  • Marge Cassou
  • Irene Duckett
  • Hazel Barene
  • Vi Fietz
We’ll finish this race and cross that finish line, together. I walk with their name with Love.

Please there is still time. If you have someone you love and want named… Name them.
Contact me I would be happy to take them with me!

 And it never too late to Donate to this cause, every penny counts and could make a difference!

Lets Honor them in their Fight!

My Big Boy Johnpaul Thomas

My Big Boy Johnpaul Thomas
Born March 29th 2006 He's my Master Negotiator and Helper
This little man is my baby in training. He gave me the greatest honor of changing my life and title forever. He made me Mom. He made me important.

It has been a short four years that have blurred past of sword fights, super heroes and laughs.

Johnpaul is a Big Brother ask any one he doesn't take his title lightly.

One of my most favorite of many amazing attributes of Johnpaul is his idea of Honor Love and Family. He is a awesome little boy. I look forward in watching him grow.

Born November 21st 2007 He's my Determined Problem Solver
This guy was worry from within the whom. At week 15 I started to bleed. We were loosing him. It was that day this sweet one even before breathing air taught me one of my most precious life lessons.. patience.

Before I had little but while pregnant with him I was on strict bed rest for 172 days. I was more than worth it.

My image of him was he was the most Determined person.. boy was I right. He will because of this be anything he wants. Greatness is in his future.

Nathaniel is loving, sweet and considerate. He can melt your worst day with his smile.

My sweet baby Christian Michael

Born September 10th 2009 He is my Big Snuggler
This little love. He's my last but in no where my least. He was not planned but was very welcome. He was an Anniversary Gift the best kind ever. Christian doesn't talk yet or walk but I can already tell he's a big thinker.

He is always watching. I can't wait to see how his personality unfolds... but at the same time hope he takes his sweet time. He is my baby, my last and I'd like to keep him sdmall for a bit ;o)
