This morning, we met with Father Terry, Cardinal Leger’s Chaplain.
He said he had a check for us, but gave no hint or warning that it’s staggering amount would render us virtually speechless.
Combined with an earlier staff donation, Cardinal Leger has now raised over $12,000 for Eric’s Fight. In addition, we were presented with 2 banners (one 34 feet long that the staff and students had covered with signatures and supportive messages; truly inspiring. I’m glad I didn’t read it there as I’d have been a blubbering idiot). If I’m not able to post any of the pictures taken this morning, I’ll take a photo of it myself. It was also nice to meet a few of the students involved with the organizing of the fundraisers. Your time and energy is very much appreciated. Best of all, Eric was able to come with us, to thank everyone in person.
So, thanks again Cardinal Leger and Father Terry!
Eric’s last day of chemo (this round) is tomorrow. He seems to have tolerated this one a bit better than last – but it does make him very tired.
Thank you for keeping him in your thoughts and prayers.
