About Me

My photo
Greenville, North Carolina, United States
Hello, My name is Tracey. I am a wife, sister, daughter, and mother of three. I have taken photos of my children and family members for years. My love for photography became a passion when I received my first 35mm SLR from my wonderful husband for my 1st Mothers Day. Nothing captures a moment in time like a photograph. It is my desire to capture images that reflect life's moments as you remember it.

For a Great Cause

As you all have probably read, Thomas has had some health issues over the past couple of weeks. We had a MRI done and test results suggested that there was great concern that he may have either Lymphoma or Leukemia. Initial test show that all is clear. I thank God for taking care of that. He is the only reason for the great results. Although we are still not completely out of the woods yet, things are looking WAY better that before.

With this in mind, I really would like you all to consider helping my friend J.B out. He is a co-worker of mine and he has really shown lots of support to me and my family during this time of concern for Thomas. There is another child that J.B. holds dear to his heart has been fighting (and winning) childhood cancer himself. Along with this child's father, J.B. is participating in a childhood fund raiser in connection with St. Baldrick's Foundation. On October 24th J.B., and a few others will be shaving their heads! All proceeds raised will go to the foundation for childhood cancer research in efforts that no more children will ever have to suffer from any type of childhood cancer.
What a great guy he is for stepping up for such a great cause. After reading up on St. Baldrick's Foundation, I urge all of you to make a donation to this foundation. Most of my readers have children of their own. It can happen at any minute to any of us. God uses doctors, and medicine to heal and sometimes He just chooses to heal it all himself. Please, please consider making a small (or large) donation to this foundation.
Here is the link to St. Baldrick's Foundation, and here is the link to J.B.'s page where you can make a donation to sponsor him.
I challenge all of my family,co-workers, friends, and blog buddies to make a $ 10.00 or more contribution. I would love to see J.B. hit his goal of $ 2,000.00!

Thanks to all of you for prayers for Thomas. We will be going back to the oncologist, on Friday. Hopefully there will be good results to report. I will keep you all posted!

P.S.
I will post some before and after pictures of J.B. Hope you all can show support!

Many thanks,
Tracey
