When People Come Together

by Hannah

This morning we had the opportunity to witness something awesome. Some of the guys from the fire department where my father-in-law works got together and set up a fundraiser breakfast for Jackie. There were a lot of people there and a lot of money was raised for her treatment. She was feeling well enough to go, which was awesome in and of itself! It was moving to see so many people caring about her and wanting to help, it means a lot to us and I know to Manny and Jackie as well. For those who don’t know what this is about, here is a little bit of background about Jackie’s story. And if you want to read her updates, she has her own site here though an awesome organization called CaringBridge.

On the way there- when we woke up this morning it was in the 30’s with a windchill factor of 28! Yikes we aren’t used to this.
