Visit Rebekah's Page to get updates, read messages and send messages to Rebekah and her family through comments. This is a public "diary" of a family whose little girl started a battle with inoperable cancer in April 2005. In December 2007 our house burned down. And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own. Over several years of ups and downs, you will get into our hearts, minds and souls as we share joys and sorrows. It can sometimes be very difficult to read. We hope it is also uplifting. Please find joy in what you read here.

A Very Special Request



Many of you have been gracious and donated to help us out over at www.HelpRebekah.com. Rebekah's trust continues to remain in need of donations and will be used for her medical bills and surgeries as she continues to need them. Thank You!!!

But for now I would like to draw your attention to another need and make a very special request. I have joined Team Maggie May in the St. Baldrick's Fight For Cancer day this comming Sunday. If you have been with us for very long you know that Maggie was a beautiful little friend who we fought side by side with in this battle over cancer. Maggie's cousin is heading up this team and I am honored to be a part of it. My participation is not only in honor of Rebekah's survival but also in the beautiful memories of Maggie and Nikolette; both friends who we have lost during our battle this past year.

Please see http://www.stbaldricks.org/team_detail.asp?id=2015 for details on the team. We were very touched this entire year by Dr. Olson, Nurse Darcie and Nurse Suzi who participated in St. Baldrick's fight last year and whose "slim hairlines" reminded us every time we saw them how much they cared. It meant SO much to us and now this is my chance to give back.

Please go to Team Maggie May to check out our team and/or to help us out. My goal of $1,000.00 is not very much but it is a great honorarium to Maggie and Nikolette in my heart. If you can help please do. A donation form can also be download HERE. You can also donate by calling 888-899-BALD.

We will be at Barracuda's this coming Sunday, April 9th, 2006 at about Noon. If you are close please join us in the festivities and watch us go bald to fight childhood cancer.

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD
TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN THIS WEEK.
