As of yesterday, we're still waiting for written conformation from the Internal Revenue Service.

As previously mentioned, we've received verbal conformation. However, until we have written conformation in hand, we will not conduct any Fight 2 Win Campaign business.

Today would be Alese’s 24th birthday…

We’ve spent the day at home together, and earlier in the day we replanted the memory garden with purple, pink and white flowers. It’s been a quiet day and our plans are to keep it just that… quiet.

We’re remembering, reflecting, smiling, laughing and crying. This is a day filled with a host of different emotions, I should add the good far outweighs the bad.

We ask for your continue prayers for Jennifer Willey, along with many of Alese’s other friends who continue to battle Hodgkin’s disease.

We’ll post additional information about the Fight 2 Win Campaign later this week.

Father, comfort our hearts today, in all we do please allow our lives bring glory to You. We ask that you continue to comfort Jennifer Willey during these difficult days, bring joy to her heart and peace to her soul.

A Small Favor…

On several occasions Alese asked for help for one of her friends in the text of a journal update…Whether is was for prayer or requesting that people get genetically tested for a bone marrow match.

In this case, it’s for one of Alese’s dear friends Jennifer Willey… Jennifer is 28 and lives in Maine, she is a Hodgkin’s survivor; however, Jennifer underwent a bone marrow transplant and as a result she has chronic Graft vs. Host disease, this is when the body rejects the donor cells. This is a very bad scenario and there is no cure.

I’m requesting that you do three things…. First, pray for Jennifer and her family. Second, please go to her website (copy and paste this link) at: and inundate her quest book with encouraging words. Third, forward this request to a couple your friends and ask them to do the same.

Jennifer is a warm, courageous person and your encouragement will help. Just click on the Sign My Guestbook link.

Father, I ask you to put your hand on Jennifer... Bring her comfort, please take away her pain. Father, heal her body, strengthen her family and bring joy to her family and their home during these difficult days.
