I have been to over 140 schools in the past year delivering FITF shirts to faculty all over Maryland. I enjoy telling people that I know when I walk in the doors what kind of school it is. When the faculty are friendly, and almost like family, it shows. That atmosphere is great for the kids to learn! I taught in college for a decade, and have done assemblies all of my career. Both my parents were teachers. I’ve seen it work! That environment can also be as good as any medicine. I believe it.
After spending some time with Sandy I can say her smile and attitude is infectious. I completely understand why there is this outpouring of support for her.
Sandy’s tumor is shrinking! She said her last test had the largest drop so far, and she feels good.
This Emerald Green shirt signifies Liver Cancer. My snowflake is for Faith. What I saw and was blessed to be part of today is HOPE! It’s love. It’s support. It was amazing and possibly could be the reason Sandy defies the odds to control and maybe defeat this cancer.
The FITF shirts with school names have been connected to a STEM assembly and fundraiser for the PTO/PTA. With these shirts, $300 was raised for charity instead. I will be matching it. So, $600 is on the way to American Cancer Society on behalf of Sandy Eastridge.
If anyone deserves a miracle, it is this woman and all of her family at Bellows Springs. Thank you so much for including me in such a wonderful display of humanity.
Note: The back of all spirit shirts has our infamous Pre-Snowfall Ritual Checklist
- PJs inside outspoon under the pillow
- White crayon/chalk on window
- Flushing ice cubes
- Snow dance
…The last item is most important:
- Do all of your homework!
Here I am with Sandy and Jessica (pink hair). Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU!
