While I had planned on putting together multiple gift guides, this weekend my best friend's daughter, and Georgia's sweet friend, Tommie, was diagnosed with High Risk Neuroblastoma. It feels completely silly to put together a gift guide when your friends are going through absolute hell.

With that in mind, if you feel generous, please donate to support them through this GoFundMe. The goal of the fund is to allow them to concentrate their efforts on getting Tommie well, and don't have to worry about money. We are also working towards bracelets and t-shirts in the future.

I've also decided to run the Pittsburgh Marathon in May, in support of the UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation, where Tommie is receiving treatment, and my amazing niece, Cameron, receives care and has benefitted from the Down Syndrome Center. I've set a goal to raise $550 before the Marathon on May 5th. I'll be sure to share the story of my training as that gets underway. It's been a long time since I ran 26 miles, but it feels like the perfect time to raise some money in support of this hospital we are so lucky to have in Pittsburgh.
