I have been in shock the last few days. 2 and half years ago I found out that I was going to be fighting for my life. It was the worst day of my life. 9 months of treatments that dragged me down and made me feel like I could not live my normal life. Once I finished my treatments I was thankful for being alive and for all the good that was surrounded around me. I knew at that moment that I wanted to do something. I had a very clear picture that God put in front of me. I just did not know that I would be strong enough to follow through. In a short time Cindy's Hope Chest was a vision that become a reality. A true dream that I am able to be a part of everyday.
During the last 14 months so many wonderful people have come into my life. The women that I have bonded with during this fight will be friends for life. I am very proud of what we have done and excited to see what we will do.
One of the wonderful things that CHC has been blessed with was being chosen as a finalist for the Toyota 100 cars for good program. It was a contest on facebook. On Monday there were 5 nonprofit organizations competing for votes. We created a video to show the country what CHC does and what we would use our new car for. It was a fun and thrilling day. I watched a community and beyond come together to rally votes for CHC. It was amazing to watch and it made me feel like they were fighting for all the women who have and are currently battling this terrible disease.
At the end of the evening CHC had the most votes! So Toyota will be delivering us a Highlander Hybrid. I still can not believe it but you all know me I do BELIEVE:)
Thanks to everyone who voted and supported us. Thanks to Toyota for believing in us. We are so excited.
