Hi Everyone, I wanted to post here in the forums that for one's that know me and have chatted with me, My mom has cancer is been sick since October2010. She is going in for her second surgery on Wednesday. My Mom does not have Medical Insurance so I listed all of my retired pathtags that I have left of just one or a couple of each on ebay. All the money raised will go to my mom to help towards her Medical Payments. So if there is any tags that you don't have in your collection of ours and like to have a chance at adding it to your collection please feel free to bid. Here is just one of the auction items listed:http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250769215718&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT
Thank You and Have a nice weekend.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your mom as well.

I was actually going to send you an email letting you know that someone has been posting your tags for sale on eBay...lol...turns out its you....i wouldve felt dumb there.

I've already been making bids, i keep getting outbid, but I will try to pounce as the auctions get closer to ending. Its nice to know that its going for a great cause and something meaningful.

Again, our best wishes and prayers to you, mom, and your family.

well I did win one of your great tags, the one that looks like your avatar on this forum, I cant wait to have it in the collection. I saw that thistle tag went for $51.00 !!! WOW, and congrats on the successful sale. Some of those tags went way over my tag auction budget, but I was happy to see the prices go up so high for you and your family.

Would like to thank all who placed bids/won auctions on our pathtags we sold for Val's Mom. With a separate donation that was also sent, We will be giving her over $360 to help towards medical bills. Her mom made it out of surgery well, but will be in the hospital until the weekend. Thanks again to all who helped out.

Barry and Valarie of sweetlife

Val has listed some more pathtags on ebay for her mom, thanks to all who bid on the first auctions, Some of these are the last ones that she has of these tags, some of our earliest that we made back in 2008. Again the money will be going to her mom to cover medical expenses

Just Thought I like to let ones that actually care about the latest news of my Mom. Just got back from the cancer doctors and not such luck, news is that mom had her staples removed today and he wants her to heal for a month and make sure that she is careful that she does not tear her stomach incision up. Bad news is that her cancer is spread. She will have to do radiation and Chemo for a whole month for every day. We are grateful that my mom can come this far and stay with us and every day will be traveling a hour and a half to Green Bay. They live in Michigan so at least a hour and a half drive every day is better then a 5 hour drive each way. This is such sad news. I need all the thoughts and prayers from all of my friends. It is been a very tough time for us. I like to give my heart blessing to know that every little little bit counts. I cannot thank you all enough for all your support on my auction of my pathtags I am selling to help raise funds for my mom. I will continue to sell tags to help her out with her medical finances. I feel this is the least I can do to help her out. I wish I had all the money in the world to help ease the stress of medical bills. This is the last thing I feel for her to have to worry about. I love my mom so much and her being here as long as she can is what makes me happy. It is a sad to know that a loved one has cancer. God I feel so helpless at times. I wish it could all be taken away. I every day pray that things will only get better. I try to stay positive and keep faith that god keeps her under his wing and is looking out for her and not make her suffer. I feel for anyone that is got a loved one battling with cancer. I know my mom is not the only one. Guess why I always live for the moment, day by day, hour by hour and I make the best of each and every moment I can and if this is a way I can be with my mom, the more I appreciate her in my life. I love her so much. Thanks for listening while I ramble on but it seems to be the only thing that helps me take all this in is by sharing my feelings. I cannot Thank You all enough who are my friend for being great support and show that you care. I will try to have a nice remainder of the day, and please do the same. With a heavy heart ~Valarie of sweetlife

Val and Berry:
After the dinner we had with you up in Mountain, Melissa and I feel for you and your mother. I lost my mother just about 4 years ago. I think about her every day and miss her tons. I wish you both the strength to make it though these tough times.
We will think about you every tieme we pull out the pathtags we purchased to help out.
Good Luck and May god be with you.
Dave, Melissa, Kryssy & James
