Natasha's fight

Natasha, Shawn and my niece and nephews
My husband Brian thinks at times I'm way too public (and soon enough, you'll hear from him honestly about this). Despite him thinking this, there are things I do keep private. I don't talk about work and I don't really talk about my extended family unless I feel it's important to. Now is one of those times.

As many of my friends and family know, my sister-in-law Natasha was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer two years ago. She lives in another state and often times, my husband (and I) have felt hopeless that we really can't do much living so far away.

Natasha wrote in her blog after they found out the cancer had spread, "I keep thinking about the 5 year survival rate for Stage 4 Breast cancer. It's like 16 - 20%. My youngest will only be 7. Will he even remember me? How is my daughter going to survive teenage-hood without a mother? Will my sensitive other little son be ok? How will Shawn survive being a single parent of 3 kids? These are the questions that constantly go through my head right now."

With that on his mind, my husband is a talented and creative individual and has decided to put his musical talents to good use and wants to support his sister by writing, producing, recording and releasing a 6-Track EP about her brilliant spirit during this challenging time. The catch, he needs your help to get it fully funded via

I'm reaching out to those who read to please help us with this. 100% of the proceeds of this project will go to Natasha.

Thanks for your support and I will give an update when we make our goal!
