We love Donna Flora!

Ok lets start somewhere what is this "event" ...yes it IS another fundraiser some will moan now!
 I will copy what is said on the official blog in the about section:

"For years, Squinternet Larnia has been an active and well-loved member of the Second Life community. There were items from her store, Donna Flora, at almost every charity fundraiser. When she was asked, she said yes.December 2011, Squinternet learned she had breast cancer and that it had already metastisized to her bones. Her prognosis was bleak and she was not expected to see the summer. Well, this is the second summer since her diagnosis. She pursued alternative therapies that have helped and given her a hopeful and joyful extra year. However, the cancer has regrouped and her strength is flagging. At the moment she needs home nursing care and is hoping to travel to a cancer treatment center in northern Italy for another last-chance attempt to prove the doctors wrong. You can read more about her life, her work and her struggle with cancer in an article from AVENUE  I wrote last December.Since she has not been strong enough to release recently, her income from SL has dropped to just enough to maintain her sim. In characteristic Second Life fashion, the community that makes SL what it is has come together to throw a fundraiser for her to help defray her  expenses. While Italy has national health insurance, she must finance any alternative therapies and much of her home nursing care.The event will begin on July 25th and run through August 11th. It will feature items for sale. Designers will create one item for sale at 100% and then can sell a few additional times that they can split with a 50%, 75% or 100% donation. There will be donation jars available soon that people can put out in their stores or while dj’ing or performing.There is more to this event than fundraising though. As much as Squinternet needs home nursing care and access to new, alternative treatment, she needs the strength and encouragement that comes from knowing she is valued. That is why we will be having many guest posts from people who know her. There is also the Messages page for people to post their  good wishes, thoughts, stories, and memories.  There is also a Flickr pool for pictures for Squinternet. Living with cancer takes money, but it also takes hope and love. Let’s help with that as well."

So why have I applied to blog for this event? For me its a very personal reason! I for myself had my first tumor when I was 12 I had several since then not going deeper here but I had surgeries, chemos and all this discouraging doctors around me telling me things like I would never reach the age of 18 ....well here I am standing on the ground with my own 2 feet and I will hit the great 30 in september and all that was just possible  cause I was able to grab all the chances that showed up! And really it isn't all about money...at some point you just don't feel like its worth all the pain the tears ... not only money is needed what is needed is the courage to stand your ground and not just giving up... we all want to feel loved and we all love the feeling to have someone that truly cares for us! All of the things that all those creative people made for this event reflect the love and respect they have for Squinternet! You can see they have put all in those tiny and big things, they had!
For me its just ...I want Squinternet to have all the chances to not just see this summer or the next summer ..I want her to be able to see as many summers as there are possible for her! 
I want her to prove the specialists wrong like I was able to do it! So I truly hope this event will hit it like nothing else and she will be able to go to nothern italy and grab this chance and I truly hope it will make her enjoy her time without too much pain and with a lot of laughter!
And above everything else I want her to feel loved and brave enough for this journey! <3
