Those who know Laura, know that she is not only the life of EVERY party, but that she will also:
* Plan and organize the party
* Kick off the party with a meainigful and funny poem
* Provide food for the party
* Make sure the party door is open for anyone and everyone who wants to attend
* Ensure every party guest feel valued, loved, and special, and is having a great time!
For Laura's big 6-0 this year on December 31st, I'm hoping we can return the favor. As most of you know by now, Laura has spent the last 1.5 months battling Stage 4 Lymphoma, and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. While she has vehemantly asked for no gifts for her birthday, I know it would absolutely make her day to be able to give back, and help others who are going through, and will continue to go through, blood-based cancer.
This is why for Laura's birthday this year, we're asking her friends and family to help raise $2,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by 12/31! LLS is a global leader in the fight against cancer, with a mission to: "Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.".
Please help me in making Laura feel as special, valued, and loved as she has all of us, and consider donating any amount to this wonderful organization. We know it's been a tough year for many, so please know that we mean it when we say no amount is too small, and every dollar is appreciated.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to consdier donating to this wonderful cause in Laura's name, and for helping us celebrate her birthday in the most Laura-way we could think of.
We appreciate all of you!
