on a totally unrelated but important note

On September 17, I will be participating in the Hemophilia Walk again in honor of my friend's son, Jeff, who died from complications related to hemophilia. Hemophilia patients can be faced with enormous medical bills that insurance will not cover, in addition to the cost of many trips to the doctor and the toll the stress takes on the patient and his/her family. The Western PA Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation provides DIRECT assistance to hemophilia patients and their families. Donations to this organization make a direct impact on people in need, in addition to also supporting research and raising awareness. My friend was a recipient of the support and services of this organization and now works diligently to provide that support to others in Jeff's memory.

If you would like to sponsor me, you can access the fundraising website here. When you make an online donation you will automatically receive an e-tax receipt from the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of NHF. You can also search for me under the team name, Jeff's Journey.

I appreciate any support you are able to give.
