How far we travel in life matters far less than those we meet along the way. ~ Mark Twain
In Stop and Blog the Roses spirit, today, I am grateful to have met these lovely people ~
1/ Laura Lutarewych ~ Fellow ChicagoNow blogger & a cancer survivor herself. See her story here & watch the story above to learn how she and her daughter Atia met Dina Manzo, the founder of Project Ladybug. Note: It involves a trip to Maine and a ladybug door knocker. Proof, indeed, that there are no coincidences!
2/ Dina Manzo ~ Fellow fabulous Jersey girl & Mother Ladybug. Watch the story above to learn how her father inspired her to start Project Ladybug.
3/ Grace Melon ~ 15 year old, two time cancer survivor. Her first name suits her well. In fact, remember her name. Check out the story above and you'll see why!
4/ Gary Grossinger ~ Anyone who donates their spectacular space for a cause like Project Ladybug is an angel.
5/ And, most of all, ATIA ~ the Loveliest Little Ladybug in the Land!
