My February Mission

As many of you have seen today, I lost my brother, Ryan, on Valentine's day, 2011, when he lost his battle with cystic fibrosis. Needless to day, the 14th now has a different meaning for our family.

Last year my girls went to their dad and asked that they not get presents and instead a donation be made in memory of their uncle. We decided as a family that this would be our yearly tradition, in addition, to participating in the annual Great Strides walk as a family.

Today I launched my $1.00 campaign. If you haven't purchased, know someone who hasn't read, or want to gift Forever My Girl, to someone, I'll donate $1.00 from each book sale through February, in memory of my brother. 

If a paperback is purchased, $5.00.

If you purchase for the Beaumont store - 100%

Many of you asked how you can donate since you already own Forever My Girl. You can make a donation toward Team Ryley ~ Our cf family Great Strides team. In case you're wondering, Ryley, is a combination of Ryan and Ashley, my sister who also has cf. 

If you prefer to make  donation direct to the foundation, you can fill out this form. If you'd be so kind as to click the Memory/Honor button and include my brother's name, Ryan McLaughlin (at the bottom), my family would be forever grateful. 

Thank you for taking the time to read.
