Jill's Journey

Hopping her way towards a (hopefully) cancer free life three legs at a time

WE DID IT!…….Thank You.

Back in February, I began a mission to collect 1 postcard from each of the 50 states ( by Jill’s 1-year ampuversary (12/12/13).

Well, WE DID IT! and more than one month ahead of schedule!  I cannot even begin to explain how humbled, honored and loved I felt for Jill everytime I went to the mailbox and dozens of postcards would come pouring out.  I never imagined the outpouring of love and support we would receive.  We’ve had a lot of bumps in the road on this journey and this project has certainly kept our spirits high!

Our goal was to receive one card from each of the 50 states, but we received a total of 90 postcards!  82 from the US, 3 from Canada, 1 from Australia, 1 from France, 1 from London, 1 from Dubai and 1 from Belgium!

Yes, this project was done in part to keep our spirits high during this difficult journey, but we also did it for a cause!   If it weren’t for, I can wholeheartedly say I do not know how I would have gotten through this past (almost) year.  The support and love I have felt and passed on to Jill has kept us sane, laughing and positive through the darkest of days.  Because of that, Jill’s Grandmaw and Grandpaw (my parents) and her Aunt Farrah (my sister) generously agreed to make a donation to if we could meet our goal by 12/12/13.  So a GIGANTIC THANK YOU to them!

I do not know how to eloquently say thank you for this to everyone who has supported and contributed to the project.  So we choose to do it to music.

So, humbly, lovingly, joyously, with our arms around all of you………..Thank you:

This is awesome! Perfect song, too. And I see Evelyn did something useful and sent you a card. And I didn’t think she had any thumbs! She showed me, huh?

Ok Jill, you accomplished this goal. What’s next? Set your sights high and believe in yourself and you can do anything. But first, go take a nice nap. You deserve it.

Love, Shari and Evelyn the Embarrassment

This is so awesome that everyone pulled together and did this for Jill & you. We love our chemo buddy and this is such an pawesome tribute. It made me cry (I know it was supposed to be happy but the love that everyone showed just brought out that emotion). Great song and loved loved the video and all parts of it.

I can’t wait to get to celebrate that big day with you.
