Welcome to Georgia's Journey

Georgia Lily Lucas was born at home on October 6th, 2008 4:15am, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She was diagnosed with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) on April 1, 2009.

On April 3rd Georgia was taken home, to be near her sisters and the rest of her family and friends. Nearly three weeks later, on April 21, 2009, she died peacefully -- in the loving arms of her mother and in the same room in which she was born.

Summer Planning

Mike and I have slowly started talking about summer plans. He really wants to go to Calgary this summer and I can't think past Sunday for the most part. This is the season, especially in Canada where all of the outdoor runs, walks, golf tournaments etc. for charity happen. The walk for SMA done here in Winnipeg called Quinn's Quest is not happening this year. I don't have all of the reasons why and don't want to be the annoying person asking too many questions so I have decided to let it go. If anyone knows the exact reasons I'd love to know. If it is a matter of volunteers I am pretty confident at this point that I could help in that area. There is a sister run done in the Toronto area called the Rebecca Run. www.rebeccarun.com Mike and I briefly discussed going to do this but with the money spent on flights for four and hotel rooms we'd be better off just donating the money.

I have decided to let this summer go and focus on the fall. We are hoping to have some kind of fun filled family day at the beginning of October to honour Georgie's birthday. Keep it in mind as we are hoping to have lots of people.

Our friends the Strongs are going to be taking their daughter Gwendolyn on a 5 000 mile journey across the Southern States to meet family. They are hoping to raise 50 000 dollars for the Gendolyn Strong Foundation. Got 10 Bucks?...wait maybe 11 with the current exchange rate. They are asking for 10 dollars a mile. If you are interested check it out at www.gwendolynstrong.com or sponsoramile.com

Love to you all,

Kristen
