That Much Stronger

This summer I made a fabulous new friend quite by accident.  We were matched up for the download of the day at Divine Digital.  Only Divine was down with horrible server problems.  For weeks and weeks.  Yet somehow Chelsea and Aimee and I managed to exchange emails and create a cute school kit on time.

We enjoyed each other so much that we began a fall collab together.  In the process, each of us mentioned needing a day or two off to celebrate a birthday.  We quickly discovered that all three of our birthdays were the same week.  Within 4 days, actually.  As my 11yo would say, "how random!"

Just as we were rocking and rolling together, Chelsea received a string of bad news.  Her husband, Clayton, was diagnosed with skin cancer right below his left eye.  It is a Squamous Cell Carcinoma, if left untreated it will start to effect the nerves and then move to the eye. This comes on the heels of other medical bills for their son, Luke. Clayton has also recently lost his job, the Doudy’s have no insurance and have been told Clayton will need the Mohs surgery in the next two months.  We all know how when it rains, it pours.  My heart aches for her.  I am thrilled to be a part of the digital community where taking care of our own is what we do.

Please take a second to consider helping.

The kit is super full looking like this:

I am off to scrap and play with mine!  Grab yours soon!
