Fredericksburg, VA: Have Fun and Raise Money for a Good Cause!
Last summer, I helped a happy young family buy their very first home. They moved to Fredericksburg and all was well until last fall. I got word from my former client, Jill, that one of her young twin daughters, Evy, had been diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer, AT/RT. Evy, not even two at the time, was living in the hospital. Her parents and sibling surviving day by day on the goodwill of family, friends and total strangers.
One of the things I had loved about Jill and her husband Brian from their house hunt and home buying process was their positivity and sense of humor. They were delightful to be around. And it's warmed my heart to see that positivity played out in the blog that Jill started for her ailing daughter. The title says it all. Evy Beats Cancer. This family is pushing toward the best outcome and I just know they will get there. Try finding a picture on the blog where someone isn't smiling.
There is an event being held in Fredericksburg, Jill & Brian's new home town, to honor their daughter Evy and help raise money for Evy's fight. It's a 1.5 K race on April 10th, starting and ending at J. Brian's Tap Room at 200 Hanover Street, Fredericksburg. I don't run, but I'll be there doing a fast walk. I hope to see you too.
