If you know me at all then you already know that my best friend has been battling breast cancer.
She’s half way through her 16 chemo treatments and she’s kicking ass and taking names.
When cancer strikes those that we love we have to jump in and help fight for them.
This year clearly wasn’t the year That Renee’ had planned, but she’s fighting it like a champ.
I’m not sure I could handle something like this with such grace and dignity, but she does it daily.
We just had a fundraiser for her on Sunday and it was amazing!
While cancer might suck, the result is love.
We raised close to $3000 for her and her family and we had a lot of fun while we we’re doing it.
We had raffles and a fifty fifty drawing
We also had drinks and food
We let the kids draw the tickets so they could be a part of this special day as well!
While parts of this disease are super crappy, other parts are simply amazing
Celebrating the life of Renee’ filled up all of our hearts
Taking time to pause and to help other people is what makes life so fulfilling
I’m not quite sure I can describe the energy that filled the room because it was so unique and amazing
But that’s why I’ve included all the pictures
In them you can feel the warmth that radiates from those who gathered here
I don’t wish cancer on anyone
But this is good right smack dab in the middle of the bad
This feeds the faith and starves the fears
Events like these cause love to multiply and souls to open up
Memories were made and laughter was had by all
Love will see her through
Friendship will help keep her strong
I love you sister girlfriend
This year we probably get to spend more time together then Just at work
Different shenanigans but still my partner in crime
We got your back sister always and forever
