If a Puppy Loses Some Baby Teeth, You Find Them and She Knows It……

This gallery contains 3 photos.

Does that mean the Canine Tooth Fairy visits? I wonder if they have the same Tooth Fairy as humans. I would like to think they have their own, some sort of pint sized adorable St. Bernard that clumsily flutters from house-to-house and puts all the teeth in his barrel dangling from his collar or perhaps […]

Puppies, rainbows and unicorns……

If only our lives were that carefree and simple. Going out on a limb and assuming at least for 99.999873% of us life is not all lollipops and glitter. Here is a challenge, how about pretending for just a short time life is carefree; list a word or a few words that describe your “perfect life,” well if it would be full of sunshine and butterflies. Perhaps they are word(s) or a phrase that makes you happy. Everyone has words that make them cringe, so we must have some that make us smile, perhaps even laugh, right? You know what they say, smiles are contagious so let’s spread some joy and create some giggles.  Ready? Go…………


There once was a person………

In memory of my husband Jim who passed from this disease 12/12/13. Miss him every day!

In loving memory of my Mother.

My Mom had this horrific disease. She passed in January of this year.

I lost my dad to this horrific disease.

My husband passed away from this illness after a 6 year battle with the disease.

My mom was diagnosed with CBGD in September 2013. This is a horrific disease and needs more awareness, research and knowledge.

My 71 year old mom is suffering with CBD. It has taken away so much from the mom I once knew. I miss the old her terribly. Very few people have ever heard of this rare disease, and I would love more public awareness.

My significant other was diagnosed with CBD in 2012 after several years of misdiagnosis. We’ve been together 6-1/2 years and I’ve watched him deteriorate from a strong athletic man to someone who requires assistance in all physical aspects.

Determined to raise awareness and research funding. My father has CBD.

We believe that CBGD is a debilitating illness for both patients and family. Guy was diagnosed in 2012.

My mom has CBGD and we need a treatment/cure!

**The above are all real excerpts from the fundraiser page and I know of many more losses and suffering from support pages. This is real. This is the path that my family and I are heading down. Please help find a way to change my future and so the people who wrote those heartfelt lines can possibly get their suffering loved one cured or the ones who have already lost someone, a sense of comfort knowing others will not have to endure their hardship.

65 shirts sold and $1035 (combining both links) raised so far! Still 9 days to go, so PRETTY PLEASE either purchase a shirt, perhaps make an extra donation or just donate only. If all else, please just share this post.

I really am hoping to sell at least 100 shirts and also raise $2000 minimum! Even just a few dollars on the donation only page would immensely help increase awareness and get us one step closer to finding a cure for CBGD. Remember, funds raised will go directly to CurePSP.

How about a simple challenge…….I know you do not know me. Probably do not know anyone with CBGD, do you? Have you ever even heard of it before this post? If you answered ‘No’ to any of these questions, then donate at least $5.00. That’s it, just $5.00. The price of one foofy coffee. Cheaper than fast food. Less than 2 bags of chips. But can you just picture everyone giving $5.00 and what that could accomplish!? Don’t even donate for me. Donate so you can hopefully go through the rest of your life and be able to happily say that you do not know anyone with CBGD.

Go to https://www.booster.com/cbgdawareness You can access the donation only page from the link I posted. Once you go onto the site, click on the “To make a donation only” link on the right hand side of the page. The fundraiser ends September 24th.

There once was a person…….who was cured of CBGD and lived happily ever after. This is my fairytale, help me make it come true.



P.S. For those that want the sarcastic humor back, don’t worry it will be. Sometimes, a touch of serious in your face reality is necessary.

Seattle, WA: Julie Price – Get Your Rear In Gear

In honor of my Mom, who passed away a couple of years ago after a 3 month battle of very aggressive colon cancer, I’m participating again in 2014 the Seattle Get Your Rear In Gear 5K Run/Walk, an event to benefit the Colon Cancer Coalition. I want to make a difference for the thousands of people in my community touched by colon cancer. The funds I raise will stay right here, helping with prevention, early detection and treatment for this disease. My hope and goal is to spare other people from the pain caused by losing a loved one due to colon cancer.

Last year, thanks to so much support, I raised almost $600. This year, since this may be the last year I can physically participate due to my own illness, I want to really go for it! My personal goal is to raise at least $700, but I would be absolutely ecstatic if I hit $1,000!! Any amount helps, even $1.00 would be greatly appreciated.

Please donate and help support my efforts to build hope and beat colon cancer! Thank you in advance for your help.

This one’s for you, Mother!
