I am so excited to see how many people are anxious to help with this fundraiser.  If you are planning to donate, start working on what you plan to donate and/or put together a gift certificate and then let me know when you know exactly what it is (ex. $25 gift certificate to scenty) and I will post the item.
I am starting this blog for my good friend Joanne Rittenhouse, who has done so much for my family and me.  Now I want to do something for her.  As many know, she is currently going through treatment for breast cancer.  Despite insurance, cancer is accompanied with a big expense.  Multiple co-pays several times a week for tests, treatments, surgeries, office visits, medications, loss of work, and more.   I am collecting items for a fundraiser.  If you have anything that you are able to donate for the fundraiser (items made, gifts certificates-possibly from a home business, restaurants, movies, etc.) please let me know.  Once I have collected items, I will start collecting money donations.  For every $2 donated, your name will be entered in a drawing.  You will be able to choose which drawing you would like to enter.  I plan to update this blog with the progress.  Thanks for all your help!

Joanne starting her journey.  She began with pink hair so that she wouldn't be as upset when it fell out.  Her son and daughter gave their support and "went Pink" to begin the journey with her.
