8/23/2008: NOTE: This post is over year old - please visit Karen's blog for an update from her husband Michael. Thanks - Calie
During the next few months, our Karen needs to be focusing all of her attention and energies towards healing. She has been fighting this battle for a while and needs to know that we all stand behind her; We are here to pray with her, cry with her and most importantly help her through.
Sarah Eubanks came up with this wonderfully giving idea to help our Karen. In response to the overwhelming requests to help and with Karen's permission, we are asking the A/R community to help ease the burden of the every-day responsibilities.
Since we are spread all over, instead of sending dinner via Fed Ex, we would like to ask you to send a gift card.
Some ideas include:
- Merry Maids
- Local Stores (Target, Fry's)

So, today while you're eating lunch or at Starbucks for an afternoon break, I want you to think about this:
"Every 2 minutes, there is a new breast cancer diagnosis. Every 14 minutes, a life is lost to the disease. Over 40,000 people will die this year; about 400 of them will be men." (www.breastcancerawareness.com)
