Thanks for stopping by my page and for your generous donation.
I'll start by divulging a little anecdotal introspection as to why, my why, why at this stage in my life am I re-birthing myself and owning my passion.
Adversity will occur, how one responds is the true test of ones character. When you are at your child's mercy for them to live through another day life becomes more real than ever. It was the ultimate existential moment ever to become known to myself, and safely to assume anyone that has experienced the gravity of such pain. To me, that experience is one that gave deeper meaning into my very own existence. To find such cathartic satisfaction in such sadness is the ability to be thankful and pay forward all of the gratitude exemplified by so many people in my life.
It took time, and it was a hard and dark inner battle, lots of tears and solitude, let alone projection of anger and resentment wondering why is it that ME, I, MY family endured such sadness. One day I woke up freed of that pain, free from those mental shackles, I realized that I wasn't seeing the bigger picture. What's that you ask; well here it is. It is to treasure the most precious gift we are ALL awarded - life itself. It is said that a kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal, and I stand here today to attest that notion, its true, so very true. We all have means to give back, both tangible and intangible. I find huge solace in knowing the world is comprised of so many wonderful, knowledgeable, selfless and loving people.
As a parent of a once sick child many times I felt overly exposed, I often reminisce on some very unforgiving days in which feeling helpless consumed my every being. But I stand here today, lifted by so many important people in my life. I often just sit and watch my two daughters, and I marvel in their courage and perseverance - let alone that of my wonderful and committed family, and our entire support system.
To every family that has either lost a child, experiencing a difficult journey, and/or praising for the miracle of a happy healthy child - I feel your emotion, my heart truly does beat with yours, I walk with you, to the extent that I have made my life's purpose to giving back. To watch the strength and will to survive at such a young age is simply priceless. These families deserve the utmost respect.
I thank you for taking the time to understand my journey and where the road may lead from here, I thank you for joining this movement and striving together towards a greater cause of giving.
