“Thank You” Letters – February 22nd, 2011
As the days are getting brighter, so is our outlook for the economy and for the future of Songs of Love. Staying positive during such difficult times is key, but it’s only one of many tools we have to use to get through and survive. As we’ve pleaded before, we need your help. A car donation or a monetary donation is potentially a tax deduction for you and a life-saver for us. Ultimately, it is a gift, a personalized song for a child in need, so they can have their very own positive outlook and be better equipped to deal with their own illnesses and obstacles. With this in mind, we bring you today’s thank you letter!
This is Rena Rudisill, Ashley Abernathy’s mom. Your foundation wrote a song
for her in 1999 and David Lee Roth sang it. I just wanted to let you know
how she is doing.
She is a two time cancer survivor and is doing great. She was nine years
old when you met her. She is now 15 1/2 and is a freshman at Forestview
High School here at home in Gastonia NC. She now has a thick head full of
frosted blond hair. Beautiful brown eyes and has the little boys chasing
her like crazy. But she will soon turn sweet 16 in August have her drivers
license so she can get away from them a little faster. But seriously, I
did want to update you on her status. I still check in on your website and
see what you have going on. I have been interviewed about Ashley’s cancer
by the local news and for a demo tape for Oprah Winfrey to promote the
treasure boxes. I have mentioned your organization in each. You are doing
a wonderful thing for these children. I thank you from the bottom of my
heart. If I can ever do anything to help, please let me know.
Something as simple as a donation – a car donation, cash donation, etc. – can make such a big difference.
