I have no words .. I am an emotional wreck .. you guys are wonderful .. went thru a box of kleenix .. totally lost it when I opened Lisa M's letter .. above is why, more to come .. oh my God .. can't stop the tears, they keep dripping out of eyes like a leaky faucet or something.
When I realized what you had done, I thought - no, I can't let you. I'll give it to my shelter or something. But .. your notes, I can't believe this. I don't know how to explain - the feeling I got that you all truly wanted to be part of Rachel's battle with this dragon .. so .. for her, I will accept this gift, I can't believe what you have done. I've made a conscious effort not to bring the money strain of this to the board - but it is a strain. Between worrying about Rachel and worrying about how I'm going to pay this off without dipping into retirement funds .. many bouts of insomnia. Many.
What you have done .. you will help me pay about half of what I have outstanding. Bles you - every one of you. Bless you from the bottom of my heart. The money equals one week of her treatments .. a week that will give me more time with my love, more time that is a precious gift that I will always, always, always know is part of your doing.
Ineed to go hunt down another box of kleenix. Part without me for a bit, ok?
