What I wish most is that I had the prize of choice for everyone who donated. That is, that I was able to give you all the object that you most desire as a way of saying “thank you” for the pure generosity and loving support you have absolutely showered upon me.
Perhaps it’s my hormones, but just thinking of many of you – who do not have much to give – and knowing that you made real sacrifice to donate… well, I’m a blubbering crying mess. It means so much to me. It means so much to me.
And it means so much to the kids like Oliver that are battling leukemia, means so much to everyone that is going through cancer treatment. You’ve honored them as well as the people that have already died, and I can’t thank you enough.
Random.org chose everyone, fair and square.

I’m still $54 away from the minimum, but I want to pause on any donation requests as I am just waiting for two checks to clear with LLS. With those cleared, the goal will be met.
THANK YOU. So much. So very, very much.
