Bucks for Bernice...

Bernice, who is my mother in law's sister is battling cancer.  She was recently let go from her job of 23 years, because of her illness. ( which has angered everyone, who has heard the story. ) The doctor also informed her that she is terminal.  So, tonight friends and family gathered around and had a benefit to help her.  There was a 50/50 raffle, then there were lots of great raffle baskets that were donated.  So many wonderful people were there having a great time chatting, catching up and supporting Bernice.  Today in Ohio is also known as "Sweetest Day".  A Hallmark type of holiday where it is like Valentine's Day.  So, what better way to spend the day than supporting someone that you think is amazingly sweet?  Bernice is just one of the many reasons why I walk, and will continue to so till we find a cure.
