Hi Janet
I'm a follower of your brother John's blog, and I'll be following this blog, also. I just wanted to let you know that I looked for the bracelets on our local ALS site, but they are apparently not selling them here in the US. So, I made a donation, instead. I know it won't help Andrew directly, but, hopefully, it will help someone.

What you are doing is great, the fellowship and understanding of Andrew's condition will probably be good support and encouragement, which is medicine in itself! I wish you the best with this new endeavor!

Terry said...

Way to go, Janet!

Popped over from John's to wish you best of luck with your fund raising :O)!

I've come over from John's blog--What a great cause! We have a friend here in the US that also has this, and I know the trials that it brings. I wish you all the best in your efforts! I look forward to reading about your success and what the journey brings!

Louise said...

That's very kind of you, Janet, but, not necessary. Knowing me, I'd probably lose it in a week anyways. (Louise rolls eyes at her proclivity to misplace things.)

Congratulations on getting your blog off to a great start! Love the photos you have posted and I'm sure your brother feels your love and support.

Wishing you the best with this new blog Janet. Andrew has such a special family. And now he will be gaining more friends from around the world and the added prayers and support they will send due to your efforts. How does one purchase the red wrist band?

(BTW, your bro, John, sent me.)

Janet said...
