My Last Fundraising Post for Lauren

If you read this blog regularly, you will know that I have been in overdrive, trying to raise money for a very brave little girl battling cancer – and one who lost her daddy in an automobile accident in 2007.

I set my St. Baldrick’s fund raising goal $1,000 higher than last time (this year is $3,000) and I am not even at one-third.  Perhaps it’s the economy. That’s my problem, so this is not whiny post.  I am eternally grateful to those who have contributed;  among the donors are one family whom I know is in very tight financial straights and one girl who is unemployed. Dozens of people have re-tweeted or written about my quest.

But this is SO not about me.

I will leave you with this quote from Lauren’s Care Pages site.  It’s a painful chronology of  a little girl who has been in and out of hospitals for the past five years, but I found this extremely poignant:

Last night the school was supposed to have a Daddy Daughter dance..Lauren  refused to go if she couldn’t go with daddy.”

A child.  With cancer.  Without her daddy.

Here’s your last chance to contribute.

Thank you.

    Greatness is not determined by what it takes to get you started. Greatness is determined by what it takes to make you quit.

    Don’t quit!! Be Unstoppable!! GOD can’t steer a parked car!!
