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.

Betty's Hair Raiser

So, in case you didn't already know, my mom is an absolutely incredible person. In conjunction with this year's Georgia's Journey of Hope she is accepting donations to either shave her head, get it into a mohawk or to keep it. All donations go to Families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy Canada and my mom has pledged to do whichever idea raises the most money. We would have liked to shave her hair at the actual fundraiser but she is leaving on a European river cruise for her 40th wedding anniversary a few days later so she is doing it later on in October. Don't worry we'll post all of the pictures!! : ) You can check out all of the details (and donate online) by clicking here.

And, just in case you still don't know how incredible my mom is, she will be baking her famous cinnamon buns. They will be available at the garage sale, September 11th with all proceeds going to Winnipeg Children's Hospital or you can pre-order some and we'll deliver them to you. All of the proceeds from the ordered cinnamon buns will go to Georgia's Journey of Hope. If you're interested please contact either my mom or me.

Just a quick reminder that there is a meeting at my place tomorrow night at 7:00. It won't be very long. Please bring a pen and a piece of paper.

Love to you all,

Kristen
