A while back ..I asked if I could put a most special New Babbage Team together with some most special and remarkable people that I am humbled to know that each agreed to work with me to represent our community for this most Powerful Cause . When our Fine genuine "Good Caring" Mayor said .."Go for it" I twirleddddddddddddddd .. For this has been a dream of mine on second life since last summer ... Imagine real dreams can come true .in any world WoW WoW WoW !!! We shall launch the first of several fund raising events for Our wonderful Community at Piermont Landing's Steamfitters Industrial Gold theme Ball .... With a few very special Limited Creations created with RFL in mind .. All proceeds for these creative ( gosh wait till some see them grins ) artists fun creations go direct to RFL for the next 100 days ..
For My story of why this cause runs so most deep in me .. see below

No drama no pomp just the facts .. about nine years ago right after we had just lost our Mom , we then lost a very special person in our lives to cancer ..to cervical cancer .. She was my older sister ( she was the dynamic fireball of passion the middle sister of three girls ) I am the youngest and the lessons she taught me were life changing ..She fought this monster . this awful battle hard with all she had .. for two long years and did not win .. But she shall never be forgotten not a day goes by I do not think of her .. she resides in the deepest place in my heart .. She was a Voyager in her own right .. A passionate woman 5'10 wonderful powder blue eyes .. dirty blond long natural curly hair ..a smile that filled the room .. Stunning woman and she knew how to live .. an Irish Gal thru and thru with the heart and passion and a mind set full of determination There was nothing she couldn't nail .. Something our own parents encouraged to try .. give it all you have and not give up .. Debbie didn't give up till she slipped into a coma at the end .. After watching her and being by her side for much of this .. gosh .. It changes one .. in many ways .. .. Makes one a wee deeper .. a wee bit more sensitive and whole lot more about caring .. just a different sort I guess .. You see it really isn't all about winning or loosing it is all about living and feeling as one goes along .... and perhaps just perhaps touching a few lives along the way in a positive light .. The cure of early stages of Cervical cancer were published later 1999 .. after we lost her .. Today we do not mourn Debbie we celebrate her life ..
I am so not perfect not even close but I am hoping with the help of my team mates and my wonderful community's support we can together really rally a most special community to try and find the time and make the effort to give and work together and help raise a wee bit of money to help Together we all can make a difference and find more cures for this evil Monster !!! Then we can each help to Indeed Change The World .....Thank YOU for making time to read .. I wish YOU and each of YOURS peace sunlight and the very best in all of YOU and YOURS dreams .... hope to continue to feel and know you in mine ... hugsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss
