1st Donor Drive Huge Success!

Greeting everyone!
The first of many donor drives have been completed! We had 87 donors and collected over 1,400 dollars. Yea! Yea! X%X% (this is me doing back flips)! Wow what a great turn out. Julie who is the donor recruiter for Cooks and the National Marrow Donor Program was thrilled about getting so many people out. I told her that everyone that knows Sara would do anything to help such a precious woman of God so I was not surprised that we had such a great turn out. For those of you who got to come and get in the registry what a fun fellowship it was to visit with Sara and hopefully Be A Match! Some more good news, Sara went to the doctor this week and her white blood cell counts went down to 5,600 which is great, this means the new medication is working, Praise God, Prayer works! Let's give Him all the Glory and Honor. Now if her white blood cells get down to about 4,000 and they can keep them there until they find a match we are in business! So that is what our prayer should be now.

Next on the list is I (with the help of Dr.Jerry Strader) have set up another donor drive. This will be in Abilene TX. on June 8, 2008 from 11-8 at the Center for Conflict Resolution. But I need some help, we have to get the word out for people to come. The more people that get in the registry the better chance Sara has at finding a match. The good news is that since Dr. Strader secured a place on the ACU campus the donor drive is free! Yes, I said FREE! So we can have 500 people and it won't cost anything. Because we are having it on a college campus there is funding that pays for donor registry. So one million thanks to Dr. Strader for making this happen!
If everyone would send out e-mails to all their family and friends that live in Abilene and tell them to send out to their family and friends we can get our 500 people. Also if you have connections with a Church in Abilene let's get it in the bulletin's this week and even a blast e-mail.

I am still working on getting at least two more drives in Fort Worth, if you have any contacts at colleges please let me know because if we can do it on a college campus it will be at no cost. Give me a call if you can help 817-793-1146.

Pour out God's blessings on everyone you meet!
