If You Never Tri, You'll Never Know!

Dear Anonymous Asshole

I'm not really in the business of blasting people. I'm pretty okay with people having their own opinions even when I don't agree with them. But this one got me. I actually received a chicken shit anonymous email berating me for "begging for money" for my brother. Oh anonymous asshole, how I would love to send you a personal response and blast the shit out of you on Facebook, but you were too chicken shit to email me directly from your email! 
I can assume though, that if you're hating on me that hard, you're following the blog too. Oh, ouch. 

Dear Anonymous Asshole,

If you don't agree with it, don't participate. It's that simple. I'm raising money for my brother so they don't struggle while he's undergoing cancer treatment. I'm doing it because I don't know what else to do to help, I don't know how else to show my brother that I support him, and I want him to fight like hell. He has worked hard his whole life. Sometimes barely able to keep his head above water and sometimes offering his family a weekend of fun on the beach. He's never lived above his means and you know what, he's just a good person. The amount of love and support we have already attained takes my breath away. I'm nearly speechless (but not really, ME speechless? Ha! If even!). But every morning I'm choked up at how much more support we've gained through the night. And my brother? He's BLOWN away. He said, "you're obviously good at this." Thank you for noticing brother. It's not all me though, it's these amazing people in my life that look out for me. And are prepared to do what it takes to help. What kind of shit evil lurks in your heart to not see that!?

You don't have to like what I'm doing. You can scroll past it and ignore it. You can have your opinion and scold me or belittle me for "begging for money", I don't really give a shit. But that's not true either. It breaks my heart. It hurts my feelings. And I'm embarrassed for you! People support causes they care about. They don't give because they don't want to. They give because they CARE. And the bottom line is, I don't want my brother to die. I don't want him to struggle or worry about how he's going to support his family. This is my way of helping. So fuck you for not appreciating that!

For all others reading this, friends and family supporting and donating, running our virtual 5k, sending love and prayers... THANK YOU. You are warming our hearts every single day. And we will never be able to thank you enough. My brother and his wife say everyday, "we will pay it forward when we are able." They are humbled by your support. Thank you. Much love!!
