Monopoly for a Cause – Bulldawgopoly

Today at school, I got a game called Bulldawgopoly (like monopoly). Teachers were given them to give to one special student. When I went into my Photography class I noticed my teacher hadn’t given hers away yet. Another student and I admired it at the beginning of the class. Later in the period, I talked to the teacher about it and told her I really liked it. She is like “I am going to give it to you just don’t show it to the kids in the class, get it before you leave.”
As I left class early I grabbed it. I went to my next class but the door was locked so I sat on the floor admiring the game. I noticed a story on the back and read it. It talked about a girl who found out she had an inoperable brain tumor called ganglioglioma on May 19, 2011 at 15 years old. The parents searched for a cure and found The Burzynski clinic. It was starting trials that had a 70% success in stopping the growth ot reducing all types of cancers. After only having less than a 1% chance of living 5 years, her parents pursued the clinic. The cost was an issue though, insurance only covers a small portion of the $8000 a month cost. That is when the ideal for Bulldawgopoly came in. 100% of the sales of this game go directly towards Kassidy’s cancer treatments. How amazing that they are doing this for her.

A Wonderful Night

I am so thankful for the people in my life that are pouring into me and encouraging me! Tonight, a very special someone did just that.

A friend of mine named, Krystal, asked if I would like to hang out with her and I said, “Yes!” We went to Starbucks and had some coffee and tea and just talked. She really poured into me tonight! I really appreciated it! I have been going through some things emotionally and in my walk with Christ. She really gave me some great advice when talking to me. When we talked I was vulnerable and honest about what was going on. I cried and just let it out, and I am thankful for her being there for me to do that. She has such a beautiful heart and is an amazing woman! Thank you Krystal for the stories, especially the personal stories and advice you shared with me! Again, thanks for pouring into me and being real and open with me! It was such a nice time to talk and be real with someone in person, to talk face to face.

Krystal, you have a special place in my heart and am grateful to have met you! I can’t wait to hang out again! I hope I can pour into you and tell you how amazing you are just like you did for me. I love you!! An I am so thankful for a sister in Christ like you! ??

A Huge Thank You

I want to say a huge thank you to a sweet women I met at physical therapy last Friday. Today, I went to physical therapy and the receptionist said that someone had left me a gift. It turned out to be the women I had met last Friday, her name is Joyce. We began talking about what happened to my shoulder, she shared what has happened to her as well. Then we got on the subject of sewing. She likes to see and so do I. We showed each other our previous projects.

As I showed up to physical therapy on Wednesday, Phyllis said she had a gift from Mrs. Joyce. She then handed me a bag that contained 2 pillow cases and a letter. The card says: “It was a true pleasure to meet you. I think and pray for you often. I want you to know you are an inspiration to me. I hope you enjoy the pillow cases I made for you. There are a few mistakes. I had fun making them. You have a wonderful and blessed day. Sinceremy, Ms. Joyce.”

Thank you Miss Joyce for the beautiful pillow cases. Thank you for thinking of me. I am so grateful that I got to meet you!
