Rhodine is a hopeful & positive person who has a team of supporters to help her win this battle... Please show her how much we care!

Random acts of kindness are a wonderful way to reach out to touch the life of another person. Doing so undoubtedly makes the world a better place. During this challenging and frightening time we have expanded our awareness of the opportunity to dig deeper within ourselves; to explore more of the potential of our own humanness. Even my nephews have learned the virtue of giving of oneself. It’s been carried out by Peyton who unselfishly bought Grandma a necklace with his own money before her first surgery as a symbol of love & support. Most recently Parker has requested donations be made to Grandma in lieu of birthday presents for his birthday. Acts of kindness really are not difficult. We’ve seen it time and again in the love and support of our family, friends, and even those who only have heard our story. We have learned these randoms acts of kindness have uplifted us when we have needed it most.

As most of you are aware, the next phase in finding treatment for our Mom involves taking trips back to Mayo & Virginia Piper Cancer Institute in Minneapolis. We are raising funds so that she will be able to get the much-needed treatment for her illness & to help with travel, lodging, etc. For this, we are knocking on your kind heart to extend your help.

Holding kindness and compassion in our hearts is the best reminder that the point of life and living is to reach out, make a difference and most importantly, that pure acts of giving and receiving, are the most powerful experiences of love. We all have been touched by so many people for which we are eternally grateful. From every member of our family I thank you.
