News from the family and a new recipe

LOTS going on this week.   First, I want to make an addendum to my post about families.  I forgot to tell you that my twin sister, Marian sent Nora a box of goodies every single time she had a chemo treatment.  She collected goodies all month long and when she knew Nora was due, she would take a time out, and, remembering her sister, mail her a box.  I am still very impressed by this and this is the dedication that I was speaking about when I wrote about the Amoroso family’s commitment to one another.

Second, Mary met in Boston and was there for Nora’s great news.  We are all excited and anticipating success.  Please keep her in your prayers.

Third, my sought of adopted daughter, Erin, jumped out of a plane skydiving this week.  Yes, Amelia, I was happy to find out later than earlier.

Next, our new family member is walking for MS.  Here are the specifics below.

Following that is my new recipe for Salmon Ceviche.  It is delicious and healthy.

 Walk MS
Dear Friends and Family,
The National MS Society is kicking off our annual Walk MS. I am planning to be a part of that event and I am asking you to join me in the fight against MS by making a contribution to support my effort.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is dedicated to ending the devastating effects of MS.  They simultaneously fund research for a cure while also helping people who currently live with MS lead more fulfilling lives.  I believe in the work they do, and I invite you to see for yourself all the good they’ve done for the MS community.  More than 400,000 Americans live with MS, and your support can and will make changes in their lives.
Please help by making a donation – large or small – to fight MS. Or, why not join me on the day of the event? Become a participant and side by side, as teammates, we can work together to raise the funds to make a difference.
Whatever you can give will help! I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.
