Kathi Cares Program

Published March 4, 2017 by lynn k scott

I recently took the plunge and joined Twitter.  I can’t say I’m a huge fan and the majority of my “tweets” will just be my blog posts, but hey, it’s free advertising, right?

That being said, it’s time to bump the Kathi Cares Program again.  For those of you who may be new to this blog or why I even started it, you can read more about it here.

This coming June 12th, will mark the fifth anniversary when my younger sister lost her battle to breast cancer; she was only 37 years old.  In remembering her, the Program speaks to her generosity, caring and willingness to help others.

While a few people have graciously made donations, I am primarily funding this project myself.  The goal is to become a non-profit, so I can ask for donations and those who donate will be able to have a tax write-off.  I am content helping one or two people at a time.

I would ask that if you have Facebook, you take a moment to look at the Kathi Cares Program page and see what it’s about.  If you read or see anything there that moves you, I simply ask that you share the page (or this post) so others might also benefit.

While it’s currently set up to be a local program in Northern California, the goal, one day, is to become nationwide.  I know my sister would approve and if she were still here, she’d be right here with me helping this program grow.

Could I ask a favor?

Published March 23, 2016 by lynn k scott

I typically don’t ask for favors, but I am now.

I have a talented friend, Tom, whom I met because of my sister.  He is a veteran and has entered a contest.  I would like to see his drawing get the most “likes”.  If you have Facebook, and it’s not too much trouble, could you please click on the link, “like” the drawing and feel free to say a few words in a comment if the moment moves you to do so.

Then, if you wouldn’t mind either sharing this blog or the link on your own Facebook wall, it would be a double dose of kindness.

So here’s the link, Jessie’s Warriors,

Thank you so much!

Relay For Life: Just Around the Corner

Published July 1, 2015 by lynn k scott

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!
