I thought I'd add an update even though I haven't had much- if any progress at all. I have had some setbacks and see many mountains ahead, and honestly, I am TIRED (in every sense of the word)!
I must also say that I am still on the journey, pushing harder and harder! Reading other stories on this site, and the constant flow of love & support from friends, family & even people I don't know keep me marching on!
While I march and sometimes fall, I look & see those FOOTPRINTS in the sand, and I feel lifted again. HE always carries me.

Good morning everyone out there! FIRST OF ALL, I wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to ALL OF YOU who have already made contributions toward my fundraising goal!!
This process is not short nor is it easy! Honestly, I knew that, and I didn't expect to just fly right through it. In the other hand, I totally did not realize how much of my strength, positivity, and perseverance I had ALREADY been using to get through each day! Then SURPRISE...here you go...KIDNEY DISEASE! So, I do what I've ALWAYS done before when being faced with diagnoses of a life threatening, progressive disease... I bow my head down showing my Aries Ram horns and let this disease know that I am NOT GOING DOWN like that!! I will fight this with all my might, all the way!
Having said that, I really am only human. This has to date been my hardest journey. There have been so many set backs and roadblocks that I've found myself breaking down more often. That's very hard for me to admit. It's always been very important to me that I stay strong and positive not just for me, but mostly for my son.
I've said all of this to hopefully express to you all of you that my "thank you" comes from the deepest part of my heart! I was having a very hard day just the other day. I was doubtful and was losing my positive outlook AND THEN I SAW MY PAGE! All of your thoughts, prayers, support, and donations reminded me that I'm not on this journey alone! You all brought me back up! Sincerely THANK YOU! - Lis (short for Lisa!)
