*** Non sewing post today. Feel free to pass on by and stop by later this week ***
Today's the day. The benefit for my son starts in a little over three hours. I'm amazed at how quickly his friends were able to pull this together - after all, it's only been six weeks since we first learned he had brain cancer.
If you're in the Twin Cities area you certainly invited to stop by. It's at Jersey's Bar and Grill in Inver Grove Heights from 1 to 5 p.m. For a $25 donation ($10 kids) you'll get unlimited taco bar, beer and soda, entry into the door prize drawings, and a chance to bid on one of 40 silent auction items ranging from a television to loads of sports stuff to gift certificates to hand-stamped greeting cards. Kids can get their faces painted and everyone will enjoy the entertainment by Jeff Loven.
Some of you have asked about making a donation. A PayPal account has been set up for that as well as an account at a bank. Either email me privately for the information (sewingbysharon at gmail dot com) or send an email to RobBenefit at gmail dot com for the details.
DISCLAIMER: This feels a bit uncomfortable to post this as if I'm begging for your hard earned dollars, but please know I'm only posting this in response to some private requests I received. You are under NO OBLIGATION whatsoever to participate. I still luv ya :-)
That being said, I'm really looking forward to today. To meeting his many friends and co-workers, to reconnecting with people from our past, and to spending time with family and friends.
The other positive report is that Rob is one week into his radiation and chemo treatment (radiation five days a week with chemo seven days) and has yet to experience any negative side effects. Yea!
Continued thanks to all of you for your positive thoughts and vibes sent his way and to you prayer warriors who continue to lift him up and pray for complete healing. Let's see you fight against that you ole brain cancer!
