Good Morning Everyone!!!
Can you believe here it is March 13th and we have 4″ of snow in our wonderful little town of Troutdale? Yes, it is true, even though I decided to wear my flip flops today anyway just to pretend it’s spring. It is not very often that I talk about anything else on this website beside Heating and Cooling but I am very proud to be sponsored by Comfort Zone Heating & AC, Inc. for the Relay for Life Fundraiser.
I know that most of us know or have a family member that has cancer. Well, this is the year for me. My sister has Stage 4 Breast Cancer. She only has a 16% chance to make it to the two year mark. Being devastated by this I did what most people do. Research. What could I do? I needed answers. While reading every article that I could find, I came across the American Cancer Society Relay for Life Website.
Being the type of person I am, I signed up on the spot. I have a team of supporters called the Walkers for Knockers. We will participate in the 2012 Relay For Life of Sandy OR in July. It is a wonderful event that raises money for such wonderful things as the Hope Lodge, Road to Recovery, Look Good/Feel Better and College Scholarships. My sister has already been blessed with counseling for her and her family, free rides to and from treatment and a wig for when she lost all of her hair.
When I went to Comfort Zone for a donation, I received much better than that. They jumped in and sponsored our whole team!!!! I know that there are lots of companies that donate, sponsor, and participate in fundraising and charities and I don’t want to take away from their generosity. I do though want to show my appreciation in this bad economy that we are having the support they are giving me and my team. Walkers for Knockers Thank you!!!!!!
