As I write this, Bonnie Raitt’s song “I Will Not Be Broken” is playing full blast on our home stereo. It’s Sandy’s favorite song right now. We are packing up into a friend’s RV and hitting the road today for the LiveStrong Challenge in Portland which happens tomorrow (Sunday). The 15 members of our Friends of Sandy team is now one of the top fund raisers for the event, and we will all be gathering tonight in Portland at the event site. We are very excited to be a part of it. Please continue to donate to our team and the Lance Armstrong Foundation at the link to the left.
Our profound and deepest thanks and appreciation to all our friends and family who have come together to make this possible. We would not be going without all your help and financial assistance. Wish us luck and send some prayers our way. Sandy’s condition continues to decline daily, and getting her to Portland will not be easy. But she is thrilled and motivated to go — pulling together all her remaining strength and energy. Her spirit is truly incredible and shines bright through the darkness.
