    ((((Mimi and Don))))

    I had been hoping that your absence meant that everything was okay--no news is good news and all that. But I had wondered...

    My thoughts are with you both. I'll see what I can get out of the next paycheck.
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    Mimi, you and RaleighDon have been in my thoughts, and will continue to be. I don't have the words to describe how much I admire Donald's strength and generosity.

    We have been wondering about you and Don for past few months.

    If there is more money gathered later on, another different type of bike for each stage at the oncology dept..... recumbent, duet.

    I wrote about it with photos in Momentum magazine. 2 health care facilities use this type of bike in Vancouver and Victoria, BC. So your hospital could get into touch with these facilities on such programs and how they manage it.

    It's a type of bike all of us might wish both as a rider and then later as a passenger.

    My thoughts and hugs for both of you, Mimi. Please thank Don for his pie he baked when Jack and I were graciously invited for dinner in Seattle after our ride from Vancouver

    The lady from the hospital wrote to me last night; we raised $2155 in just one day. That's actually close to the total needed. I don't know what exactly the total is though, I have been badgering her to get that information.
    You guys are all incredibly awesome. All the nice things you are saying, and then making donations too. I am blown away. When I get to the other side of this, I hope to get back on my bike.
    Shooting star, that companion bike looks like it would be really tough on hills!!

    Big Hugs Mimi! I know I just posted on your FB wall but wanted to drop a message here also. Not much to say except you are in our thoughts here and we (I am speaking collectively for TE) are here if you ever need to talk. I recently went through this with both of my grandmothers(both within the last year) and all I know is spend every moment you can with him and enjoy his love for you.

    Big hug to you both, Mimi. Live in the moments you have together now. I know you will.

    Will get a donation in this week. What a great idea.

    Oh man, thank God they're springing him today. Smooch him for me.

    Mimi, I'm so sorry. I hope the success of the fundraising lifts Don's spirit. You are both in my prayers.
