#BrittsBattle

How was everyone’s weekend? As always the weekend went by far too quickly in my opinion! I had a pretty busy weekend and wanted to share with you all what I did on Saturday.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen some glimpses of the fundraiser I attended on Saturday. In August, my friend Brittany, was diagnosed with Renal Medullary Carcinoma, an extremely rare kidney cancer. If you follow my Friday photo challenge posts, I recently posted a picture from a New Orleans cemetery and Brittany is the friend I went with on that vacation. Brittany and I met and became good friends in our teaching program in college. If there’s one word I could use to describe Brittany I would say she’s a fighter. And strong willed, okay so that’s two words, but the point is I know she is up to this challenge before her.

The fundraiser this weekend was for Brittany and another young woman, Caitlin, who is also from the same hometown and battling cancer. The event had a terrific turnout and it was great to see so many people in attendance to support these girls!

There were dozens of raffle baskets and prizes ranging from spa gift certificates to a beach cruiser. I won restaurant gift certificates and plan to take Brittany along with me!

Brittany and I at the fundraiser! I admire her for staying so positive despite what she’s going through. If you are interested in helping out, there is a Go Fund Me page to help Brittany out with her medical and related expenses. Even the smallest amount can make a big difference!
