I Need Help!


I had a horrible dream last night...the sort of dream where I was an hour late to my own fundraiser!

I've talked to my therapist about this,
(and if you know me...then you know I'm my own therapist...and therapy typically happens when I'm driving in my car...when the booming silence gives me the space to think)
and my therapist told me that I need help!


*I desperately want to pre-sell tickets to this event. While I believe that we have an amazing resource for purchasing the food, I'm very conscious of the money being spent. I want to plan well and waste nothing.

*I need to start the hunt again for inexpensive t-shirts. ("Cheap" being the key word in that sentence.)

*I also need to start the hunt for a clown/balloon connoisseur because, though the last man did indeed live up to his own inflated reputation, I've lost my contact name/number!

*And I desparately NEED raffle items. It's been frustrating, the lack of general enthusiasm from local businesses, and that's all I'll say!

And I think I will use a slightly creative way of giving back to the many who care. I believe that our sweet gifts will be raffled to all who pre-buy a ticket!
(But if you truly prefer selling those little $1 tickets...let me know and we can work both ways!)

*I may need a little help thinking that through and planning accordingly!

*I need to plan for out-of-town family and friends. I would love for all to be able to be part of the breakfast festivities. Realistically, however, I also need a way for all to be able to donate to the cure if travelling is not an option.

"Pancakes". version inspiration!


We need more hits on YouTube!!!
I'm panicking for my sweet boy!!!

So, please, go to "YouTube", put "VHL Family Alliance" in the searchbox.
After the search completes, look for the video with a picture of Steven standing with a soccer ball.
Click on that video and watch it completely until the end!
Repeat once a day!

And please feel free to share this video with family and friends!


Thank you for caring so much about my sweet boy!
