Lucky




This past Saturday I was privileged to be able to attend the Hope For Sarah garage sale. There was one in Payson and in Orem. I call it a privilege because I was able to meet so many amazing and wonderful people. I was surrounded by loving family and friends who spent an entire Saturday donating their time and treasures for me and my family. They had everything there you could possibly imagine from hand dipped chocolate covered oreo's (thanks Candi) to pink disposable razors that sold like hotcakes! We were able to learn a lot of good skills from our top saleswoman Linda, who actually sold a box of razors to a bald man! I was also able to talk to quite a few people who themselves are struggling to fight cancer or have a loved one fighting. I was humbled that so many people cared and were so willing to help. I shed many tears that day, and my heart is overflowing with love. My daughter Ella asked me several times why they were having a sale. I told her it was to help Mama get better. That night in her prayers she said: "Thank you for the garage sale, and for all of the people who helped." I feel pretty lucky, and better already.

Hi Sarah... I've found your story thru Natalie's blog. I'm a stranger to you but not to cancer. I lost my father to prostate cancer 4 yrs ago, BUT my mother won her fight with non-hogkins cancer and she's been 9 yrs cancer free. She was stage 4. Never give up and keep that wonderful positive attitude that I'm reading here. I myself have been unemployeed for a year now and have given what I can. I truly wish it could be more. I've made a direct donation as I know every little bit helps. Sending you love, strength and a huge hug.

Sarah, I just heard. Wow! I would like to help. I don't have much money, but I would like to donate a service or two... that maybe you could use as an auction piece or something. Please have someone get in touch with me- melaneeanne@gmail.com.

Hi Sarah,

I found your blog through Natalie and just wanted to say that me and my family will pray for you. I too believe in MIRACLES I have a little 2 year with a terminal disease that should not be here with us. I wish the best for you and your family
