Hope for Kate

Just bought my tickets for Community for Kate, a fundraiser for the Drury family taking place on June 7th.  Two and a half-year old Kate Drury has been struggling with illness since she was nine months old.  Here is a bit about Kate, and here is the Hope for Kate website.

Kate is a couple of months younger than Lil C.  Her mom Julie and I worked together 13 years ago (Julie, if you’re reading this, can you believe it was that long ago!) and now we occasionally run into each other in the neighborhood.  When Julie was pregnant with Kate, and I with Lil C, we were occasionally in the same prenatal yoga class.  That makes me think of her often.

Hope to see you there!

    I also believe that mesothelioma cancer is a extraordinary form of most cancers that is generally found
    in these previously exposed to asbestos. Cancerous
    tissues form while in the mesothelium, which is
    a safety lining that covers most of the body’s internal organs. These cells ordinarily form in the lining with the lungs, tummy, or the sac which encircles one’s heart.

    Thanks for revealing your ideas.

    However, just one wrong thing at the wrong time means the end of the scale, a co owner could buy 1% of an economical cruise ship for about $5000.
