Listen up.

The video of my essay for Listen To Your Mother is now up on youtube, if you are curious. All 5 of you who read here will not beĀ surprisedĀ it was about my mom, and the experience of being a motherless mother.

I really recommend you go over and watch all the LTYM videos, because so many are funny, smart, and speak to the truth of this crazy journey. There is one video I really want you to watch though, and that is my friend Mindi the Magnificent, reading her essay “Diagnosiversary”. In fact, if you only have 5 minutes, skip watching mine (you’ve read it all here before), and please watch Mindi’s.

And then, when your heart is swollen and ready to burst, go over and donate a dollar, two, five, five hundred, to Mindi’s 46 Mamas Shave for the Brave fundraising page. She is working her butt off

“…raising awareness, raising funds for research for cures and better treatments for YOUR kids. For OUR grandkids.The kiddos of the 46 Mommas have already been given the best is that is available and it’s just not enough.

PLEASE………………. help me fund a cure.

This is Gregory, asking if you can donate two dollars to celebrate that June 11th is his two year transplaniversary.
