Let the countdown begin ...

Starting today there are 65 days left until our Great Strides walk in Des Moines, Iowa - Saturday, May 21st.

Andrea and I have been working on a project to entice people to visit our Great Strides donation homepage and we're hoping that people not only donate but invite others to follow suit. Here's how it works:

There will be a sneak peek of a rose image everyday. SIXTY-FIVE total as we count down to walk day.

Here's image #65

In order to get the full picture, you'll have to click here:

Every day there will be a new picture to wow you. But the only way to see the full image is by visiting our Great Strides homepage. Once you're there, read our story and then please ... not only do we ask that you make a donation, but we want you to share this and ask all your friends to donate what they can as well. $5 bucks will do if that's all one can afford. Imagine...hundreds of people donating $5 bucks each! Heck, if Obama could raise millions that way, why can't we...right?

This really should be quite fun. Think of it as a "Where's Waldo" game, but instead of looking for Waldo, you're looking for a rose.

Please help and do what you can, so that one day we can make CF stand for CURED FOREVER!

Thank you!


  1. Thanks Donna. I'm so new to this and get confused by it. How come I didn't know you had a blog. I can't wait to check it all out. And definitely can't wait to see you on Monday. xoxoxxo Susie

  2. I've had my blog for a couple of years, although this year I decided to post on it more. Looking forward to Monday too!


  3. Hey! Nice Blog! :) Let me know if you ever need another CF mom to talk to my mom would be happy to answer questions for you she has 2 (my brother - 20 & I - 22) and has been through it all!
