My calendar was freed up a few weeks ago. So, I inquired about the Melanoma Messengers Training through Melanoma Research Foundation. They still had some openings, so I signed up and asked my father to attend with me. I really wanted to go, but the thought of driving to a strange city and staying overnight was too much for me to handle. Luckily, he agreed. So that is what we’ll be doing this weekend.
I hope that I can learn some valuable ways that I can make a difference in the fight against Melanoma. I don’t want John’s death to be in vain. My ultimate goal is to start a memorial bike ride in Cecil County to be held in John’s honor and raise funds to fight melanoma. It’s a big undertaking and I really know very little about bike rides and virtually nothing about planning and holding them. But, I’m willing to learn and looking for a project.
So, stay tuned. If anybody is interested in helping me, please let me know. Sometimes life gives you lemons… I’ve gotten some really sour ones this year… hoping to make some lemonade with them.
