Please Extend the "Go-Give" Spirit If You Can

Hello to friends and family,   I know that we all have our own special charities, organizations, scholarships, etc. that we support each year. Your support may be that you volunteer in some way or make a monetary donation.     I ask that you take a few minutes and watch the video below.  To give you just a little bit of information about this family:     Tim, age 22, graduated Virginia Tech in Dec 2009 with a degree in engineering.  Tim was diagnosed with CF when he was 19.     Matt, age 19, is a sophomore at Howard Community College. He has recently been accepted to several state universities (FSU!) and is looking to transfer in the fall. Matt has Juvenile Diabetes     Jason, age 14, is a freshman at Mount St. Joseph's and is on the swim and water polo teams. Jason was diagnosed with BOTH CF and Juvenile Diabetes when he was 9 years old.     Three years ago, their non-stop mom, Eileen, was rushed to the hospital after jogging 3 miles for an emergency appendectomy. During surgery, it was discovered that she had stage 4 ovarian cancer.     I work with their dad, Mitch.  This is a man who could come to work, angry at the world, grumpy, etc. He has three sons living with CF and/or JD, and a wife in remission from cancer.  But that's not Mitch. Mitch truly puts God first, family second and career third.  He constantly wants to know how everyone is doing, asking what can he suggest to corporate to make all of jobs easier. All the while, with a smile on this face, a humorous tale to share, and passing a tin of chocolates.       With the recent diagnosis at our home, Mitch is constantly telling me, "don't worry about work, family first".       Even if you are able to make a small donation - no amount is too small, it will go a tremendous way in assisting this AMAZING family reach their goal.     Please view this 2010 video at http://vimeo.com/10853934 and follow the link below to join this amazing family in person or in spirit!
