As I mentioned in my blog last week, I was at a roadblock and did not really know what to go from there, but this week I recovered from that by taking a big leap forward with my project. I contacted a local Family Cancer Foundation, known as Angels of Hope. The coordinator of the volunteer activities has been in touch with me for the past few days trying to set up a date to meet so her and I can plan the volleyball fundraiser. She has been a great help by promoting my idea on social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter. I am hoping with the attention of social media, my fundraiser will have a good turn out. All of my proceeds will be going to Angels of Hope to help families struggling with the disease and to help find a cure. She is trying to find a family that I can meet with in the near future to talk about cancer and what it is like battling it. I have also contacted the principal of Brownell Middle School in hopes of using their gym to host this event. As I wait for his response I will be in touch with the people of Angels of Hope planning the event and sorting everything out. This week has me very excited to see where this all goes!
