Hello November! Glad to see you! November brings all kinds of great adventures but before all of the November fun begins it is time to talk Comments for a Cause.
This past month we highlighted Black Mountain Home for Children, Youth and Families. From foster care to cottage care and transitional living on their campus, from independent living housing to lifelong living facilities this place is amazing . After a lovely day of touring and getting to know some of the staff I was so impressed with what this organization has been able to do and continues to be able to do. Thanks to the comments on the blog Chris and I will be making a donation of $88 to Black Mountain Home for children, Youth and Families to help them to continue to make a difference in the lives of those that they minister to. Thank you all for your comments.
Comments for a Cause has been one of the best things I have done on It’s Just Life since 2011. Yes – 2011. It’s hard to believe that I started it way back then but it has been a great feature here. Some of my readers just come on the first of the month to see what the cause is, others read every once in awhile and still others read almost every single post. Each of you is an important part of the It’s Just Life family and I am so happy you found me however you found me.
Sometimes Comments for a Cause takes a more personal turn and this month is certainly one of those months. In the past I have highlighted causes that have importance because of friends and families who are experiencing a disease or a challenge. This month is no different. I have a very good friend here in Brevard whose husband has been diagnosed with glioblastomas (GBM). I don’t know a lot about brain cancer and tumors but what I do know is that it is definitely not a fun thing to have nor is the treatment a piece of cake. So this month I knew that I needed to find a charity that helps people with GBM in ways that are tangible.
The American Brain Tumor Association has a great mission.
The mission of the American Brain Tumor Association is to advance the understanding and treatment of brain tumors with the goals of improving, extending and, ultimately, saving the lives of those impacted by a brain tumor diagnosis.
We do this through interactions and engagements with brain tumor patients and their families, collaborations with allied groups and organizations, and the funding of brain tumor research
This month, please come back often and leave me comments on posts. I love reading your comments and for each comment on any post Chris and I will make a 50 cent donation to The American Brain Tumor Association. This month is for Bruce. Keep fighting.
