On Saturday, July 26th, 2014 my father-in-law - an amazing man - succumbed to a 6 month battle with pancreatic cancer. His diagnosis came too late for any measures to be taken in order to save his life. Our family spent the next 6 months enjoying life and loving each other. Leon was a hard working, fun loving, intelligent and giving man. He will be greatly missed. I am so blessed to be a part of the Schumacher family.
Wow- 10 years. And not just 10 years of craft shows. Also 10 years without my mom. 10 years of missed time. My kids never growing up with their Grandma. Missed Birthdays and Anniversaries. Missed kisses and hugs. But 10 years of fighting for a cure to cancer; an end to families missing children, parents, siblings and loved ones from this horrible disease. I will keep fighting for my mom.
My Microsoft Officelive website was discontinued and it's taken awhile to find the right format for my new site that is easy to maintain. So far, so good on this one! The purpose of this Blog is to keep you in the know of upcoming events for Dottie's Cause, and to share stories about mom - I love to hear them! Not just for me, but for my kids to help them get to know this amazing women who's life was cut short. Thanks for all your support!
