Last weekend I had the opportunity to guest write for another blog, Writing with Shelly and Chad. It was fun 🙂 Shelly & Chad have been friends of mine for many, many years. They are a blast to be around and always find the positive in any situation. I love to read their blog, it is very reflective of their personalities: fun and uplifting.
One really powerful read was when Shelly & her amazing extended family was raising money for St. Baldrick’s. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a childhood cancer charity funding, doing research to help find cures for kids with cancer. If they reached their goal donation of over $10,000 they would shave their heads. It was touching to read stories of how other people donated, their young cousin Tyson and his battle with cancer as a child, Chad’s beautiful Ode to Shelly’s Hair and the images of everyone shaving their heads. I love to stay updated on how Tyson is doing through his mother’s perspective.
Thank you to my friends, Shelly & Chad! If you’d like to read my blog post about finding inspiration, you can find it HERE.
