As some of my readers might know, my Mom passed away at the young age of 38 from what we suspect was a massive heart attack. (She had chest pains the night before, and her father had also died of a massive heart attack at the age of 50, so though an autopsy wasn't done, we have concluded it was a heart attack.) She left behind 3 daughters, ages 12 (me), 10, and 8.
Last year, Emma was one of the highest fundraisers in her school for Jump Rope for Heart, a fundraiser benefiting the American Heart Association. This year, Katie has a chance to try her hand at the Jump Rope for the first time.
If you would like to donate to Katie's big jump, we would love it! This website takes credit card donations in amounts larger than $25 (what is up with that? I think a lower minimum might be nicer)...but if you would like to donate we are happy to accept any amount! (Mail it to me, or drop it off...)
