I know most of you probably read my post about my husband Dave's best friend, Brent. Brent passed away 6 years ago from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. He was passionate about raising money to help others with the disease and so we participated & fundraise for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk. Our local walk is held here in Portland each October. I typically fundraise for a few months before the walk and then put it out of my mind for another year. This year, however, I have a special reason for sending out one last fundraising reminder. An anonymous donor has stepped up and offered to match all donations received by LLS by December 31st, up to $100,000! I'm very excited about the prospect of such a wonderful organization receiving such a generous gift! So if there is any way you can donate, in any amount, no matter how large or small, your gift will be doubled this year!
Please take a look at my fundraising page for a bit of Brent's story and to see the last photo of he & Dave. And click HERE to read the flyer about the anonymous donor's offer.
Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to learn about our friend and the organization he was so passionate about! Enjoy your family and friends, and take a moment to remember those close you who are no longer with you, this New Year!
