Your mom would like this on the blog


Thank you for letting me visit as a guest blogger and thanks to you and Blake for all the work you did to help make Bunny's Carats participation in Miles for Moffitt a remarkable success.

Though my new chemotherapy is not as user-friendly as the first five months of treatment have been, the fact that there is a "new" treatment is a testament to the work at Moffitt and those that generously support cancer research.

The morning of the walk, when the Miles for Moffitt staff announced our team was first in fundraising and second in team size I was thrilled and I want to thank all of my family and friends for participating. Bunny's Carats, our team, donated almost $21,000 to insure that for those of us fighting cancer there will always be a new treatment; another chance for remission. I will cherish always the memory of my early morning, bunny-eared loved ones in their fabulously fashionable purple shirts walking for 'a girl's best friend'….a cure.

But that is not the only time I think of you all, because every other Monday when I walk down the hospital halls to the infusion center I see and feel the difference Bunny's Carats will make in the lives of others. I see it in the hopeful faces in the family waiting area that will be blessed by your donation and your willingness to join me in this fight.

I'm certain they would like to thank you too!

These past few weeks have not been easy and it is your continued love and support that sustains me.  Jim and I value your friendship and dedication. Thank you again to everyone for making a difference in the lives of so many,
