Ulman Cancer Fund



In October my life changed forever. My husband was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer. How could this be happening? We were young. My husband was healthy and active. This happens to other people. I can relate to the video above in so many ways.

The shock, fear and next steps were crippling. Frozen with fear and uncertainity we didn't know what the future would hold or what we should do. There was a huge stress to do the right thing , find the right docs, talk to our kids,etc. As much as you want it to be a bad dream it is not. It is a reality that you can't escape or change. It is a word that changes life.

Throughout this time the blogging community has been amazing. The outpouring of love and support has been wonderful. A few months back the wonderful Ms.Zippy sent me a message suggesting that we check out the Ulman Cancer Fund. Ulman Cancer Fund provides services and support for young adults fighting cancer. We contacted Ulman and they were very helpful and were quick to provide us information. One thing led to another and before I know it I was exchanging emails with two great guys from Ulman and Rev 3. Ulman and Rev 3 are partnering to sponsor a run across America to spead awareness and raise money to support Ulman and resources for young adults fighting cancer. How cool is that? Just the idea touches me deeply,that people would stop life and run across America to benefit families just like mine.

God has continued to sustain my family and give us strength. I also feel that he continually places people in our life to fight,heal and to rest. So here it is....THE BIG NEWS...The amazing folks at Ulman are going to make it possible for me to join the team running across America for a few days! WHAT??? Yes, that's right I will be running Across America (well at least a small part of America) with Ulman and Rev 3!!

My hubby and I both feel strongly that we will not "waste cancer". We will make it an opportunity to help others. So what can you do...LOTS! Go check out Ulman and Rev 3 and click on my button to the right to DONATE! Great enery and people coming together to help others! You can also check them out on FB and Twitter to learn even more and keep up on all the exciting opprtunities to help. Just think if everyone gave a few dollars. Ulman and Rev 3 know that people are going to want to get involved. So there is also a VIRTUAL RUN option! There are amazing prizes and it is very easy! I know many of you are logging miles everyday...why not have them go towards something that can make a difference. Check out the details HERE on the Virtual Run. Let me know by 2/14 if you would like to be part of a team.
So exiting and so much more to come.
