I want to say a special thank you to everyone involved with the fundraiser that's being organized a few weeks from now at the Mosquito Creek Grill in North Vancouver. A young lady named Danielle Jenvey put this together - all I can say is her mother Sharon raised a special lady. The money raised will be going towards my campaign to raise $1 million for Multiple Myeloma research. I want to thank all our friends who continually show us support, bring cookies and muffins, books and DVD's...we are stocked for the year now.
I've been isolated in this room for a week now and I'm truly praying that the docs come up with something. I don't want this blog to be about my final days. I want to be writing about better days a few months from now. I'm a positive person and hate that I have no good news to report. Bureaucracy is creeping in to the process which seems to happen more and more frequently. My doctor fights tooth and nail with hospital big wigs for approval for me to receive certain treatments. It's scary to think my life is coming down to this. I go through waves of panic but then I become really competitive. I refuse to accept people telling me how sick I am...as long as they don't give up on me I can make it. That's it I'm scared to death they will give up on me. Too much money has been spent on me, too much time and energy...bullshit keep me alive and I'll make a difference. The longer I'm alive the more hope I can give other myeloma patients, the more awareness I can raise. Thanks for not giving up me.
