I held my second fundraising events on September 13 and again not knowing what to expect and trying to avoid expectations, I was blown away! This fundraiser was held at the WildFire located in Langdon and raised $7,570. Again the showing of support and generosity was phenomenal. I'd like to thank Sammy and the wildfire for hosting the event and for all the donations he kicked in. I was amazed at the amount of auction items that were donated and just like last time things all came together in the final stretch. There are so many people to thank but for this blog I'll cover it all with one broad stroke. A huge thank you to everyone who donated auction items and to everyone who showed up at the fundraiser. I had a really good time as I'm sure everyone there did as well.
With some other donations that I recently received my total now stands at $39,970!! I figure I will need another $4,000 to $5,000 to cover all expenses which is minor when you take the whole picture into account. Going to China for treatment was something I had to do for myself even though I knew I could not pay for it myself. Having never done fundraising like this before I'm thrilled with how everything turned out! In two weeks from today I will be boarding a plane to begin my quest.
I can't thank everyone enough who has contributed to my cause! This is not just in terms of money donated but for the moral support and encouragement and most of all for everyone's prayers! Please continue to pray for me and my sister as we embark on this journey of Hope.
