I have been blessed to meet an amazing woman three years ago who has inspired me as a mother and wife. She is a single mother that works 6 days a week to support herself and her now teenage son. After two years of being in remission her cancer has returned. While she is a fighter and those of us who know her are confident she will again kick cancers butt, the financial aspect is taking its toll. Her teenage son loves to snowboard and this year, he gave up his savings to help her out and now won't get to enjoy a passion he so deeply loves. I am hoping to raise between $500 AND $1000 in order to get him a season pass to our local ski area as well as some new gear. He is a 14 year old boy that is as equally amazing as his mother. Despite all of the hurdles they have faced, he tries so hard to remain strong and happy. I would love to be able to see him have the opportunity to have a place to go where he can just be 14 for a while and forget all of his problems. As a snowboarder myself, I know the mountains have the power to bring that peace.
