You are very welcome!! I wish I could have done more but I did share with some of my friend on Facebook and they shared with their friends in hopes of raising more money. I can't wait to see you at Catie's shower! I would not miss it for anything now that I know you will be there. Give my little peanuts a hug and kiss from me and let them know that I can't wait to see them as well. I love you guys so much and pray that our Ava will be fine through all of this. She is a fighter and I know she will be just fine! Especially with a MOM like YOU!!! Hang in there :)

CROWDRISING SINCE: Oct 03, 2012
Stuff About Me:

In February 2008, my wonderful Dad lost his courageous battle with throat cancer. He was a larger than life person, full of energy and passion. He had a wicked sense of humor. He was intelligent and was an amazing athlete. In the latter part of life, his passion became cycling and he was awesome at it! Throughout Dad's cancer battle he endured many grueling treatments and to assist him in his battle he started using this mantra--PRESS ON REGARDLESS.

No matter what the doctor said, no matter what treatment was next, no matter the outcome of the dreaded disease, he was going to PRESS ON REGARDLESS. And so were we.

In the summer of 2008, I helped form the Press On Regardless cycling team, to honor Dad's memory. Our POR cycling team participated in the annual 24 Hours of Booty fundraising event (held in Charlotte, NC) having just 3 people on our team. This event raises money for local and national cancer charities, including LIVESTRONG. Over the course of the next 4 years, the POR team grew to include 12 people and our fundraising capabilities soared. Together we were able to raise thousands of dollars to help fight cancer.

And now, the fight goes on, though now slightly different. I still use Dad's mantra to inspire me and to help me through the tough times. But now, I "press on regardless" for daughter, Ava, and her recent Epilepsy diagnosis. Press On Regardless will continue pushing forward to raise funds for those causes near and dear to our hearts. This mantra is so meaningful to so many. It reminds you that no matter what, you must continue... you must keep fighting... you must... PRESS ON REGARDLESS.
