An Extension of Love: Fundraiser for My George
You know, it's one thing to love someone, but it's another to respect them. And when you have both? There's nothing like it.
My husband George would have turned 43 this month, and he should have. I miss him so much. He showed me what it have both love AND respect from a man. He would do anything for me if he could have.
I can still hear his laugh. I can still feel him kiss me on my forehead and move his hands through my hair. He's always with me.
All I can do now is remember him--and those like him-- and pay tribute by asking everyone I know to do something about these horrible diseases he dealt with-- diabetes, cancer and kidney disease. I was completely ignorant about diabetes complications when I met George, and had no clue. (Full details in my May 8th podcast.)
What Can You Do?
You can learn more about diabetes. You can donate blood or platelets for chemo patients. You can contribute to the American Kidney Fund (AKF), which has many programs to provide assistance to kidney patients and living kidney donors. AKF provided assistance for us when he became unable to work. The VA and Social Security didn't help us, but AKF did.
So let's help some folks who are still with us. Love means *action*. I hope you'll decide to do something in honor of him, me, or someone YOU love. Thanks so much.
I'm holding a fundraiser in his honor to go to AKF, where 97 cents of every dollar raised goes back to patients and programming. My fundraising goal is $1,000 in 21 days. Visit bit.ly/GeorgeLNieves to contribute.
