My good friend, Mellie, and I first met at our university's freshman orientation. Over ten years later, she is still one of my favorite people. She is a total sweetheart, has a sly sense of humor that catches you off guard and cracks you up, and will do whatever she can to help you out when you need her.
Mellie sent me an email today about the 2010 Walk for PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease which is something she has dealt with personally.) On Sunday, September 26th she is participating in the 2 mile walk again this year and was asking for support to reach her goal. Her personal goal is $300 and team goal is $700. I plan to donate soon and thought she'd get a kick out of meeting her goal super fast and then beating it.
To donate, visit:
http://www.pkdcure.org/tabid/1727/Default.aspx and click on the orange box that says "Donate to a participant" Her name is Melissa Apple.
If you can donate, thank you so much for all of your support!
If you can't but know someone who would want to help, please pass along the info to them.
