My arms are empty and acheing...

I can’t believe I’m a mother without…

Life has been twisted and turned upside down. As a mother, I had both the wonderful privilege of holding my sweet son as I brought him into this world…and the horrible chore of holding him as he took his last breaths and left this world, at only 7 years old. June 24, 2010 he earned his angel wings, passing away after an inspiring but brief fight against Cystic Fibrosis. Now I live, solely focusing on living a life to get to be with him again in heaven, and to raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis research. I am dedicated to a cure, not only for my sweet sons legacy but so that other CF families never experience the greatest loss of their lives that we are now facing. My mother’s arms are missing Connerman, yet he still inspires me daily to leave a mark of LOVE on this world…so for you my sweet prince, mommy will try!

Love Love Love

Always Always Always

Just a quick note because today is so hectic...and life has been as well with 3 sick kiddos and being sick myself...anywho! Tonight is the BIG Chefs Dinner & Wine Extroidinarre for Cystic Fibrosis that I'm speaking at! I am so excited and not at ALL nervous! Send me good thoughts (especially because I will be in heels!!!) yowch!
I will post a picture or two tomorrow, and I will also post my speech!
This is the Oregon CF Chapters largest fundraiser (well it actually may be tied with the Platt Golf Tournament here) but anywho, it's BIG and black tie...and I simply can't wait!!!

Did You Know....

There are over 100,000 people, the size of a small city, on the transplant list in the US.

There were less than 10,000 deceased organ donors in the US last year. (that's a ratio of 1 organ donor to every 10 transplant patients).

In the time it takes you to shower today, 1 new name is added to the US transplant waiting list.

From the time you woke up this morning to the time you wake up tomorrow morning, 18 people will die waiting for their transplant in the US.
