Important Walk Update and a Jewelry Opportunity

I have two exciting pieces of information to share today:

For everyone who is walking or running in the Seattle Run of Hope (and there is 91 of you so far!!!) please keep reading:

After the walk (if you've registered, the walk/run starts at 10:00 a.m.) we want to invite you to join our family at Zion Preparatory Academy for a luncheon.  It is our way to say THANK YOU and give you an opportunity to visit with Cash and visit with wonderful family and friends.  Zion's address is 4730 32nd Ave. S., Seattle, 98118 and it's only about 10 minutes from Seward Park.

Jack Jr. helped me pick the menu - Zion's amazing chef, Bro. G., will be cooking up fried chicken and catfish, mac & cheese, collard greens, and more.  The luncheon will start at 12:00 which will be plenty of time to get there after the walk.  Please join us - we'll have plenty of food and it will be great fellowship.

Yesterday I was contacted by a Lynn Kern, a co-worker of Mike N. (who got the Cash of Hope team started) - she sells Silpada jewelry and for the rest of this month she is donating 100% of  the proceeds from all sales to the Cash of Hope fund.  For those of you not familiar with Silpada, it's beautiful, hand-crafted sterling jewelry backed by a lifetime guarantee.  Silpada also offers great watches and belts.   All purchases will be sent directly to your home.  There's not a lot of days left in September, so if you're interested please contact Lynn either by email at or call her cell, 206-755-2024. In the meantime, check out her link at

Thank you so much to everyone that has donated not only to the Cash of Hope fund, but for the walk - to date over $3,000 has been raised by you for pediatric brain research.  We keep searching for a cure and this morning Sarah J sent us information on a study that was recently done on methotrexate (Cash just started getting that monthly via spinal tap) - we continue to hold out hope and are contacting doctors all around the world (today I was email contact with the author of the study - he is from Japan).

God continues to cover Cash with His protection and grace - it's been a rough week for him and he's still fatigued, but we're hoping we can boost his spirits - tomorrow we're headed to Great Wolf Lodge - Cash will be able to swim and play until he's tired not from being sick, but from playing too hard...:-)

Thank you for your prayers and support and remember, if you're walking next Sunday don't forget to join us for the luncheon afterwards - we want to see everyone and say THANK YOU personally!
