MILITARY BRATS UNITE!!! Help us help our dear friend, Stephanie Davis (Lunt) from Covington, GA CRUSH CANCER!! FAMILY FOR LIFE!!!

In July of 2010, one of the Bitburg/Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany Military Brat's Crew's very own, Stephanie Davis was diagnosed with an agressive form of Breast Cancer. She is 34 years old. What was once thought to be "probably nothing" ...quickly changed Stephanie, her husband Jake, and their beautiful daughter, Maddie, Lives forever. As many of you know, and for those of you who don't, Stephanie's father, Steve, is a retired Army Combat Medic, a field dedicated to helping others!!!! He, along with so many of our parents, were stationed at Spangdahlem AB or Bitburg Airbase, Germany, in the 80's and 90's. Stephanie was like a magnet. You couldn't help but want to be near her!! I can honestly say, she was my best friend. When you are a "military brat" you know what it's like to move so often. Having to say goodbye to friends, having to move to a new school and all the changes that brings, but most of all, the pain of possibly never seeing your best friends again. The pain I felt leaving Germany in 1992, wondering if I would ever see Stephanie again was almost too much to stand. There is nothing better than having a friend that knows your pain, fears, and has been through thick and thin with you....would go to the ends of the earth for you. And then one day....thery're gone! Thankfully, through places such as facebook and other social networking sites, I have been able to keep in touch with ALL of my friends from Germany. Some I will never forget and some I can't remember meeting!! But to me, in my heart, we are all family. Some of us have went on to be Doctor's, Lawyers, Artists, Teachers, Soldiers, Nurses, Poets.....but it seems we've also all become parents!! Stephanie is a parent. She is now not only a friend, but a mommy and a wife and a GOOD person! Deep in the soul of that woman, there is nothing but good and all that being "good" embodies. To this day she is still my friend. I love her. And she has cancer. An aggressive form of deadly, ugly, mean, take-a-woman-from-her-family-and-not-look-back CANCER!!!! It is my hope that together, as friends, AS BITBURG BARONS, and beyond...that we can all come together and help ease this burden. If you can....please donate. It doesn't matter if it's a dollar, ten dollars, whatever.....every single penny counts!!! And if you can't spare a silver dime, pleae take a moment to say a prayer for Stephanie, in whatever form that may be, and for every other woman in the fight of her life!!!!!
