Relay For Life: Just Around the Corner

The Relay for Life I am participating in is just around the corner.  I didn’t handle Kathi’s angel-versary well at all.  I was a mess. My body once again betrayed me.  Now when I cry, I get these red, crescent moon-shaped circles under my eyes. They don’t go away for almost half a day and are very noticeable.  So much for blaming allergies…sheesh!

On a more positive note, my fundraising has gone better than I could have ever anticipated.  My combined total (2 different Relay donations) is $430!  My original goal was $100.

The tattoo fundraiser I set up, netted $245 in donations.  My coworkers have been a wonderful source of support for the Relay. They have bought quite a bit of the jam and preserves I have been making and canning.  With some private donations, that made up the other $185.00.

Next year, my personal goal will be set at $500.00.  If I can raise over $400 this year, I need to set my goal higher and work to achieve more.

While my sister has left me here among the living, she is still a source of inspiration and strength.  She would be be so proud of my efforts. She would tell me she knew I could do it.  I decided to have a shirt made to wear the day of the Relay.  It was a little big, as they sold guy shirts.

What’s a girl to do?  Customize it of course!  The airbrushing came out AMAZING!  Just need to make the shirt work for me. First to go…the sleeves.  Sleeves are so confining.  Ok, yes, I’m partial to tank tops.  I cut off the sleeves and since it’s a guy’s shirt, you can see a little skin near my ribs now.

That’s an easy fix…sports bra and spaghetti strap undershirt.  Either way, that makes for a comfy shirt; esp. if I sneak a nap in so I can walk most of the evening hours.

The other “fix” is the length.  I’m just going to rubber band the excess on my hip.  Heck ya…bring back the 80s!!!  Kathi woudl definitely approve of that.

My sister was a fighter.  On July 11, 2015, I will be fighting, with other survivors, caregivers, family and friends who have lost precious loved-ones to Cancer.

Together we will find a cure!
