Thank you for your thoughts

Thank you everyone for your positive thoughts and prayers for Sarah. The response was overwhelming. There were 83 people doing this that I know of. Those are just the ones that responded, there were probably more that I didn't know of. Sarah had a friend participating from Mongolia! What a powerful thing. I know people stopped whatever they were doing - paused a movie, stopped in the middle of working on the roof to have a moment to think of Sarah, stopped making dinner to gather a family to pray - it just fills my heart with gratitude for all of you that love and care about Sarah so much. Thank you. My aunt wrote to me and said "We felt the power and strength of everyone praying at the same time. I thought.... if we felt it.....Sarah must have felt it also. Yes... we love our Sarah!" That was a great idea - thanks Rebekah! And now Sarah is back in Utah for a visit and I'm sure it will strengthen her spirit to see her kids, dear friends and family before she goes back to New York. Thanks again everybody!

Thoughts for Sarah

Dear people who love Sarah -

My sister-in-law Rebekah had a great idea. Starting tomorrow we are going to stop what we are doing at exactly 6:00 pm (utah time) 7:00 (memphis time) or 8:00 (eastern time) and send positive thoughts to Sarah. You can do it however you want - by yourself or as a family, as a prayer or positive thoughts. Or if you want to write her a note or text her at that moment. Whatever you want. But I think as we all live across the country and even the world - this is a way we can unite and do something for our Sarah. So many of us feel helpless and want to do SOMEthing. So, this is it. For a week - let's all do it. And at that moment - for those 10 seconds or however long, we can all know that we are all thinking of Sarah are are part of something. And she can know and hopefully feel our love and a power beyond her own and it will lift her spirits and help her body fight this cancer. We will do this for ONE week. Starting Monday October 17th and ending October 23rd. WE LOVE OUR SARAH!

Mesothelioma Awareness Day

On Mesothelioma Awareness Day (September 26th) there was a special on the Today Show and the Meso Foundation received a lot of press and were able to raise over $65,000 for Mesothelioma Research. Here are Sarah and Shaun at a fundraising banquet with a member of the Board of Directors of Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation.

Also - here is a really cool post that my brother's family did on that day. http://songerseven.blogspot.com/2011/09/mesothelioma-awareness-day.html
