I was asked to participate in this event just last week and decided that, even though life is very hectic this month, I would. Below is a picture of Carly and the reason I want to be a part of this. Carly is the daughter of Lynn & Timeka Leach, who are very special friends of mine and Richards. We even had the opportunity to go on vacation last year with them to the Isle of Palms. We absolutely had a blast. There were 4 couples that went, 8 adults and 9 kids, and we stayed in a four bedroom condo. I loved it and I think everyone else would say the same. Sadie especially had a good time with Carly because they are the same age. As the summer went on we spent more and more time with the Leach family. In September, life changed dramatically for them.
Carly had always been a picture perfect healthy kid. Hardly ever at the doctor except for the yearly checkups and the occasional winter cold. On Friday August 29, 2008 Timeka took Carly to the Dr. for a low grade fever and some bruising. Blood work determined she had leukemia. Carly was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) on Tuesday September 2, 2008. Her Chemotherapy began on Wed. Sept.3. She was scheduled for 27 months of Chemotherapy.
Carly has been through so much! She is the strongest little girl I know and she IS...
"kicking cancer to the curb!"

A percentage of my proceeds on Saturday will be donated to Relay for Life in honor of Carly.
