How can I put into words what has been running through my mind and heart since Saturday? Family and friends, we are truly blessed this side of heaven by all of you. Thank you so much for sharing your time, your talent, your treasure, to help Alabama NF families host our first annual Birmingham NF Walk. We had over 400 registered walkers, and the Alabama CTF community raised over $52,000 for Children's Tumor Foundation. Team Moss had walkers and donors that are former students or colleagues from Birmingham-Southern College, Samford University, Mississippi State University, Centre College, Wesleyan College, walkers from our wonderful Mountain Brook Community Church family, our current Blind Brook Lane neighborhood, our Vestavia West school community, our Trinity CDC family, our former Montgomery Lane neighborhood friends, our high school friends from Haywood County and Homewood High School, our Faith Presbyterian friends, cub scout friends, gymnastics friends, Bible club friends, friends from our time at Mountaintop Preschool, family that came from Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, from all over Alabama, dear friends from Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, my amazing Samford students and colleagues, and the list goes on and on. I have never liked being in the public eye but when it comes to fighting for my children, I'm willing to put myself in any position to raise awareness to bring us closer to finding a cure for NF in their lifetimes. Thank you, dear ones, for joining us in this fight, and for your continued prayers that so encourage us.
