Dear Linda, Thank you so ve…
Dear Linda,

Thank you so very much for your donation to Lisa on Melanie's birthday; what a beautiful gesture.

Hard as it is to receive a devastating diagnosis, I suspect it can be almost as difficult to reach out and ask for help. And so it was with both hesitation and trepidation that I requested Lisa and Kerby’s permission to widen their circle of support by making their situation public.

Over the last few days, the outpouring of love and support for our beloved friend has touched her deeply and reminded all of us that no one fights alone. Thanks to you and your generosity, and the gifts of so many friends, students, and other loved ones, Lisa knows now that she is held in many hearts.

Here, in her words:

“Thank you for your love and generosity. These last few months have been both terribly hard and surprisingly peaceful. I’ve had no choice but to surrender, and to choose gratitude for what I still have rather than despair over what I’ve lost. It feels amazing to receive the love and care of so many friends. Knowing you are there gives me hope. Illness is humbling. There’s been so much to let go of. But I also feel blessed to be able to see and appreciate life in each moment. Perhaps that is the grace of being brought to this threshold. My gratitude to you is hard to express. Please know that I am deeply thankful.”

Today, Lisa is a little less worried about what’s just around the corner. Kerby is able to begin paying bills that have been accumulating since her diagnosis. We were able to buy Lisa a package deal for five infrared sauna treatments, to help her body detox during chemo. A house cleaner is coming every two weeks. Meanwhile, a friend has offered massage. A nurse has stepped forward and offered her services.

And yet, the road ahead will not be easy in any way. I’m hoping we can reach our goal of $65,000, allowing our friends to gain their footing and Lisa to be assured of continued care over the next few months. If you know of others who may wish to join us, please do share the link. As Ram Dass says, “We are all just walking each other home.” I’m honored to share this path with you as we care for our dear friend.

Blessings, Katrina
