Greetings Family, Friends, Classmates and all who'll hear this story!
I will be going Over-the-Edge to raise money for The Victory Center where I work, and asking for your support in whatever way you can. In order to have the opportunity to rappel down the 16-story Toledo Edison building downtown on Friday, September 7th, I need to raise at least $1,000. So, I need your help!
Having worked at TVC for over 10 years I've seen what all our free services can do to ease the journey for cancer patients and their families. Whether it is participating in art classes, learning about Aromatherapy, acquiring knowledge on nutrition, or getting a massage, all the free services at TVC help to ease the burden of a cancer diagnosis. I have been humbled and blessed by the courage, determination, wisdom and laughter (yes, laughter!) I have seen in these amazing people! With TVC receiving only donations through fundraisers and individual gifts, I am proud of the Toledo area Community's generosity that has helped to keep TVC available for those who need the services it provides FREE OF CHARGE!
Just as many of you have lost a friend and/or loved one to cancer, I lost my Mother and brother Neal to cancer, as well as 2 very loved "adopted" brothers, Mike Lamb and Terry Goodman. (who were drummers and played music with my brothers over the years.) My sister, JoAnn Almanza Kornrumpf is a 4-time Survivor of cancer currently going through treatment. Cheering her on every step of the way!
So, in honor of my family members AND in honor of all the people who come to TVC, I will be going Over-the-Edge!
If you fee moved to do so, please donate and help support The Victory Center. And if you have the time and inclination, come on down to the Toledo Edison building and watch me go Over-the-Edge on September 7th!I The Event begins around 9 am to about 6 pm, but I will be sure to let you all know the timing of my descent.
In advance, I'd like to thank everyone for any assistance you can give - donation and/orbeing at the Event to cheer me on. I am truly grateful for all your support!
Bright Blessings & Love to you All!
