    It's about an event being held for me. I bawled just reading it! I don't often think of my situation in this context, to see it all at once like this. A bit overwhelming! But I also can't help but again feel so blessed and am so blown away at how much is being done to help.

    (Yes, you guys will now know who/where I am officially for those who don't have me on FB... oh well!)

    It's amazing how much support people can provide!! You are an inspiration and deserve all the extra hands you can get, for you and your family...

    This is soooo close to me, I did not check the start time, and do work that day but I sure hope I can attend!

    I've decided that I'm going to come to the event in style ;) My parents got me this shirt for my birthday that I was already going to wear:
    http://www.zazzle.ca/fug_ruby_slippers_tshirt-235872091443269451
    (FU Glioblastoma)

    and I'm going to wear my wedding shoes (I had my own interpretation of Ruby Slippers) and I'm tempted to not wear my wig, but pick up one of those cheap Dorothy halloween wigs! It's such a big event, I want to be in spirit!

    Oh, and my parents bought this shirt for Matt, and he'll be wearing it too:
    http://www.zazzle.ca/fug_emerald_finger_tshirt-235117738273406543

    I don't know where these t-shirts came from, but it's pretty awesome that I'm not the only Oz fan who has had this. I hope they are doing well!

    SO. COOL.

    As a design nerd I especially like the one Matt's getting. Love the dual context! Haha!

    I really like that one best too, the dual context is amazing! I figured the Ruby Slippers are more appropriate for this event for me though and let Matt wear that one. (My parents got me both, so I can wear them anytime).

    That is so very heart warming to see such kindness. You are indeed an inspiration...yes, very brave. I think the event is such a fantastic idea. And it looks like you will be dressed in style.:)

    Hi,

    I can't make it, I am entered in an agility trial that day. But we have a little something in the works for you the following weekend :)

    Cheers,

    Lynn
