Day after day I am continually amazed by the outpouring of love and support being extended to me.
If prayer and positivity really do work then I definitely got this cancer licked. People I don’t even know are reaching out, offering to watch Miss M or help with meals, sending money, and praying for me. And the love and support from those I do know… Well, It’s so above and beyond anything I could have ever imagined.
Today for example, the good folks at Tomlinson & O’Neil Insurance in New Bedford, MA posted a challenge on our gracefulwomanwarrior facebook page – Pledging to donate $5 for each new “like” on the page up to $500. Can you feel the love??? I sure can.
And over and over again, day after day, I continue to receive new gifts of love and support – in a multitude of forms – from all over.
Now, I’ve learned that a close circle of friends and family have banded together to create a graceful woman warrior committee. And this committee is in the midst of planning a fabulous concert and benefit to help me kick cancer’s ass! Hell yeah!!!
The event will take place on MARCH 2, 2012 at the Country Club of New Bedford in Massachusetts. All proceeds will go straight to me and my family to help pay for treatment, medical bills, travel costs, child care, and everything else you need to kick some cancer ass.
Special shout-outs and BIG LOVE go to the fabulous GWW committee:

And heartfelt thanks go out to each and every one of the thousands of people who have sent me notes, commented on my blog or facebook page, and continue to support me in what I imagine will be one of the toughest fights of my life.
I feel the love.
Peace. – T
