This is the Sanders Family Fundraiser. Please show your support!

I met Memorie 5 years ago when our children were in preschool together. Through the years we have become close friends and she has been a huge support to me through my good times and bad.
A few months ago her and her husband Doug decided to be tested to see if they were a match for someone they know who is in need of a kidney transplant. I remember at the time Memorie telling me about everything that was going on in her life and asking "How was she going to find the time to donate one of her organs?" At the time I remember laughing. Thinking it was so funny that she was worried about finding the time to donate one of her organs on top of being a full time stay at home mother of three, a gymnastics couch, and a part time child care provider. But in some ways that worry has become a reality. Doug (who is the main financial provider for their family) turned out to be an excellent match and is going to donate his kidney June 26th. He will be unable to work for 8 - 12 weeks. What Doug is doing is truly a selfless act. I am hoping to come together with friends and family to help support the Sanders family.
