Carey and hubby
And now mum gets in on the action
***UPDATE FROM CAREY'S FUNDRAISER EVENT***
The cost of Carey's new G.I Jane hair do was a whopping $1090.00 - this was how much was raised on the night.
To all the wonderful ladies that attended and made Carey's fundraiser for my Herceptin a huge success THANK YOU so very much!!
And to Carey from me, thank you darling for taking the plunge; I hope you too will enjoy the new look and the kids don't get too freaked out..LOL!
To keep the momentum and drive of any large fundraiser no matter how vital, does take a toll on your loved ones.
Along this long drawn out chapter in our journey we learned many things about each other and ourselves.
We also along the way made some not so good decisions which in the bigger scheme of it all really was outweighed by the good decisions and many hours of laughter together.
Many times the committee and I would not see the expected funds raised BUT these wonderful sisters put up a good, strong and hard campaign even in the face of their own adversities.
Taking into account what we didn't make from each fundraiser, taking out expenses used sometimes to run our fundraisers and the paid treatments I have received when ‘THE’ announcement was made November 19 I had enough funds left for another 4 treatments.
The National Government removed the anticipated sleepless nights, high anxiety levels and enormous stress of how many more fundraiser's we could possible hold before the funds dried up, let alone how much longer the committee could hold out.
Now I concentrate on healing and my loved ones.
My sincerest thank you to the my family, many friends and several strangers of NZ and across the ditch who supported in more ways than I could ever dream possible.
People I know who were effected in some way because of our fight had a change of heart and voted National. Thank you, thank you to the National Government who have made good on this promise, I can use this to help others who may not be so fortunate to have been given that silver lining of extended life like myself.
WOOP WOOP WOOP NO MORE FUNDRAISING!!
Miss Ford's Board is now officially CLOSED!!
