$25,000 & Counting

Hi Everyone,

I'd like to once again thank all of you who supported The Third Annual Walk for Grace. Cheques have continued to be received over the last two and a half weeks bringing the total earnings of The Walk to over $25,000 not including on line donations. It's hard to explain to those of you who have not lost a child how much this means to Ian and I. When Grace died, we struggled to find ways to continue to parent her even in her physical absence. Ways to ensure that the impact she would have on the world would reach far beyond the short two and a half years that we were blessed to physically have her here on Earth. Ways to keep people talking about her, remembering her and living differently as a result of the fate she was dealt and the lessons that she was burdened to teach as a result of this fate. By raising money for pediatric brain tumour research Ian and I feel that we are accomplishing some of this. It is so very important to us. Thank you for helping us do so. We have been blessed with friends and family committed to lifting us up when we struggle to stand on our own. Grace's research fund now sits at over $53,000! She will be forever remembered at The Hospital for Sick Children via a plaque baring her name in The Donor Hall of Honor. Again, thank-you.

Mama misses you,
