A couple of weeks ago I was checking out my new followers on Twitter and I came across @artdish and I loved the name so I had to check her out.  Strolled over to her profile to find out that she was an artist and then visited her website.  Can you imagine my surprise when I came across this?

I immediately followed her back and had to ask how she found me, thinking it had to be related to Jack’s Chattanoggin’s. It wasn’t, she was seeking out artists and found me. In my spare time, which hasn’t been much lately, I do enjoy being artistic and designing original jewelry.

I’m still in awe of the connection that was made and coincidence of the work our family does for childhood cancer and for her loss. I am honored that she is sending to us an original painting for us to auction off at Jack’s Chattanoggins head-shaving event on June 26th at The Chattanooga Market.

I realize I am completely ignorant (and grateful to be) to understand what children with cancer and their parents go through. In some minute way, I pray our efforts can help the children and their parents beat these dreadful diagnoses.

Raising Awareness of Pediatric Cancer Fundraiser on WRCB’s 3 Plus You

We always enjoy visiting our friends at the 3 Plus You Show – Jed Mescon, Julie Edwards, Cindy Sexton and David Karnes. Somehow, whether scheduled or not, my kids always end up on screen! However, today, we were there with a purpose – talking about Jack’s Chattanoggins. We are less than a month away from our 2011 and are in the middle of our media blitz. It’s so much fun and I enjoy watching Jack as he hones his public speaking skills, a unique opportunity for a child his age.

Enjoy watching!
