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.

Catching Up

Wow! It's been a week since my last post. We have been very busy around here. Tickets are now available for Georgia's Journey of Hope. Thank you to all of the volunteers that showed up last week. We have plenty of help and I have no doubt that th event will once again be a success. Flyers will be ready in the next day or so. Thanks to a very generous graphic artist they will be showing off our new logo!

Betty's Hair Raiser is also proving to be a great success. Earlier today she had reached almost $1800. Thank you to all of our friends and family that have been so generous. My mom has also been busy making cinnamon buns. She has already sold several dozen and we are hoping to sell even more at our community garage sale this weekend. Just a reminder that if you would like to drop off anything on our driveway by Friday evening we will sell it on Saturday with all proceeds going to Winnipeg Children's Hospital.

On another note, I wanted to thank everyone for the response that I received from my last post. "The Truck" will now be published in FSMA's newsletter in November. I am truly humbled by the honor and can only hope that other families will take some comfort in those words.

Tomorrow is Calla's first day of school and I am already feeling disorganized. At least it's only a two day week to start!! : )

Love to you all,
