I Get By with a Little Help from My Friends

Check out these great photos - we will have more pics to come, plus we want to make some videos, too. And, I have not posted Joe's Big Sur photos yet...  So text, email, or whatever, any good photos you may have in your iPhones and cameras to Lis.  It would be fun to include more photos in this blog.  Hint, hint, send some good ones from the upcoming wedding...

(BTW- My skydiving friend, Chris Graves helped me make the "Introducing Miss No Name" video with Pete's new Mac laptop. A big thank you to Pete and Lt. Col. Graves!)

Some friends have been asking how they can get green bracelets.  (We have some of them.) Lis has been doing a great job of getting the bracelets out to people who ask for one.

You can also go to this website:   

A donation of $3.99  to the American Cancer Society will get you an 8 pack of green bracelets with the Celebrating Hope logo.

As you can see from this photo, Anthony has been busy shopping online and has sent us  the proof!
Anthony's Good Effort

Check out this next pic.  Our friends, Jackie and Lauren, (formerly of New York City) are proudly lending their love and support from "across the pond"!

Recently, Lis's NYC roomie, James Ryan was on vacation in London.  James was kind enough to meet up with expats, Jackie and Lauren to deliver the green bands from Lis. Thanks to all!

Over the last six weeks, all of us have had the chance to meet a lot of new people. Some strangers on the street, others, medical professionals.  We've made new friends as well as reconnected with old ones. Some friendships are tighter than ever.  Who would have ever imagined?

If you do happen to visit the American Cancer Society website, checkout their Hope Lodge in NYC.  We had the opportunity to take advantage of this special place due to the kindness of two new friends, Sherrie and Sandy.

Friends get you through the dark part of the night. 

Everything always seems brighter in the light of day.

Thanks for every little thing, to all our friends!

Big hug,

Thanks for the link to get the bracelets, Doreen. I ordered a packet for Joe's Florida relatives to wear.

Keep the pics coming. I love seeing them.
