When I was pregnant I joined a board with many strong beautiful women. I got to know them all on a closer level then I have felt with most in a long time. We all had our beautiful babies in or around August of 2007 save for a couple of gorgeous preemies. Since then we have talked about breast feeding, bottle feeding, poop, pee, diapers, clothing, in laws, out laws, moving, death, new births of new babies (siblings to our August babies). In all of this we have also talked about love, life and living. I have shared some of my deepest secrets with these women and while lately I have fell out of touch and felt like I really did not belong anywhere (a phase I was going through) when I returned these women welcomed me back with open arms and I felt the love once again.
Why am I telling you all this you ask? Well I am telling you this because one of the wonderful women on this board Em is going to be doing a marathon. I am going to copy and paste to you what she posted on our board. But before I share that I want to share a picture of Em and her gorgeous son Jacob so that you are able to put a face to her name, I will keep you all updated of her progress in not only the money raising but her training and her actual marathon run, as much as she will allow me to 🙂
I’m doing the Marine Corps Marathon in October and I’m doing it through Marathon for the Cure, the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer organization, in honor of my mom who is a breast cancer survivor almost 10 years now. I just signed up today.
Will you pass the link below along to friends and family? It’s my site where people can go to donate money and all donations are tax deductible. It takes all major credit/debit cards. People can also send in checks or money orders. I have to raise at least $750 so I need all the help I can get. If anyone could spare $5 or $10 to put in, every little bit helps. I’d really appreciate it.
And wish me luck – both on raising the money and finishing the race!
Here’s the link to my site:

Thanks so much for any help at all
So now I am coming to you all my loyal readers and I am asking you to please help Em realize her dream and her goal, I know that I have a ton of readers who have been touched by cancer, breast cancer in particular and this is a worthy cause I promise. Even if you donate $5.00 that brings her $5.00 closer to her goal of $750. In the personal note please put that Jabbering Jessi sent you so that she knows where the money came from.
Again I love you all and thank you all for being willing to help out whenever and however you can.
