In the early morning hours of December 29th, 2006, my mother passed away. Her friends, as well as anyone who had a chance to know her, will agree she was one of the most loving, caring, giving, strongest, incredible people you’ll ever meet. In 1998, she suffered her first heart attack and was diagnosed with heart disease, which is the #1 cause of deaths in women.
One of the things she taught my brother, Hunter, and I was to never give up. So she continued to make the best out of every single day, always putting others before herself and helping everyone in any way that she could. By just looking at her face, always smiling, and being around her optimistic, up-beat attitude, you would never guess she was as sick as she was. Although she is no longer here with us on Earth, she is no where near forgotten.
Please help us remember her and all of the amazing things she has done, by joining us on the south side of the Flagler Beach Pier on Saturday, May 21st. We will be holding a surf contest, bikini contest, raffle, and all around good time to raise awareness about heart disease, with all proceeds going to benefit the American Heart Association.
