In Other News : Fundraising

A big THANK YOU  to "Team UK" as it were!  Family and Friends (as mentioned in a previous post) held a fundraiser on Saturday, "A Coffee Morning", in which they raised  £1600 to which will help in paying for Tom's treatments that aren't covered by the insurance.  Should the insurance pay, all monies will be donated to the UK Leukaemia Research (notice difference in spelling ;P). I just have to say a big WOW in terms of turn out and amount donated and a really big THANK YOU to all of those who were involved and helped in organizing, donating, etc.  Incredible!

On this side of the pond we are gearing up for the Light the Night walk this Saturday! The walk is a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), specifically this walk funds the Greater Sacramento Chapter. We have raised $2,000 for the LLS and look forward to seeing our friends and family for the walk! Again, thank you to all of those who have donated (near and far) and to those who will be keeping us company during the walk and festivities! 

It's really refreshing to see how wonderfully giving humanity can be at times.  We are so lucky to have such a lovely outpouring of support from our friends and family.  Great job to everyone involved and again, Thank You!!!!
