Thank You, THANK YOU!

Thursday, April 14, 2011 the
lovely ladies at UHS shaved my head. 

After the event I posted this as my status on facebook:

WOW! What a night! Thank you to everyone that came out, that donated, and that have supported me during this little adventure! I'll let ya'll know how much we have raised so far as soon as I find out... I know that i have $1,065 in checks alone in my hand right now! That is so awesome! THANK YOU for your generous hearts!

Still today, I'm not sure what my total is yet, 
but I know that it is over $1,500 dollars! 


So many people have contacted me and offered support and love. This makes me so happy! To know that there are people out there that believe in me & believe that what I'm doing is making a difference is so awesome!
But I want you and everyone to know that I wouldn't have done it if I didn't have the strength of the Lord holding me up. The bible says that the JOY of the Lord is your strength. (Nehemiah 8:10).
Matthew 5:16 says, "Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." So can I get a PRAISE GOD for this fantastic organization and for the people who have the courage to fight for what they believe in.

I hope that this blog has helped/and will continue to help you realize that you aren't alone in your struggles. When you reach out to help someone else (therefore stomping on indifference) you start a change in this world -- and you start to heal. ♥ I am so thankful for my Healer.

If you are reading this right now, I hope you know that YOUR life matters. YOU aren't alone. And You are LOVED.

Beauty comes from within... as your heart is transformed so is your life

I have been blessed with generous parents that have shown me true, unselfish love. Family, by blood or bond, is essential.

Alexandra raised a bunch of money, donated & shaved her gorgeous hair, and now stands in solidarity with kids with cancer as well. (I'll add an "after" picture of her once I get one.) She is one of the nicest people I have ever met & I can't wait to get to know her better.  Isn't it awesome how people come into our lives when we least expect them? I'm so blessed to share my life with so many extraordinary people.

The whole girls softball team showed up to show their support! Their coaches daughter has Leukemia.
Thank you so much my friends! I LOVE you all so much!

You can be as confident as you want to be!

PS. I'd love to be your facebook friend if I'm not already... click on my first picture (with hair & snowflakes) at the top of the blog or just send me an email, alparis89@aol.com.
