THE STORY:

Hi!  This year I am "Strollin' for the Colon"  in the City of Pittsburgh Half Marathon on May 1st! I am  focused on raising awareness for the need to proactively get a colonoscopy when the time is right!  In effort to do that,  I am raising money for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America, and the deadline to donate is April 15th.

I am running in memory of my mother-in-law, Cathy Bacasa, whose strength over six months of ongoing medical challenges was remarkable and unimaginable! Her will to live needs to overflow to those who are already living well so that they can continue to do so!

So the big message is GET A COLONOSCOPY WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT!Please spread the message!  My prayers are for Cathy to save lives!

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page and thank you for your consideration to support The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America.

BLUE  by Holly Bacasa

 

On January 4th, God blanketed the land

With a layer of fresh white snow

In preparation for His plan

 

Then he looked down from Heaven

And opened up the skies

He turned them a beautiful blue and white

Right before our very eyes

 

He was looking for a new angel

One to comfort and love

And when his eyes settled down on Nana

He felt she was ready to come above

 

The sun shined down so brightly

And the rays beamed down so strong

Nana looked up to the light

And knew there was nothing wrong

 

She looked back at her family

Who was with her this whole fight

And told them God was calling her

The time to go was right

 

She saw her loving husband,

Strong daughters and hopeful son

And assured them that this was a battle

That just could not be won

 

She new that they were with her

She was filled and enveloped in their love

She gave them a nod to let them know

That it was time to go above

 

Now Nana you are our angel

You'll protect us and give us strength

Keeping your memories, your traditions,

Your symbols and your love

Flowing at great lengths

 

We will think of you always

Especially when the skies are

Your favorite color blue

And we seek comfort in knowing

We will again be with you
