Cyndi’s fundraiser

12 June 2011

We had the opportunity to attend Cyndi Tangren’s “Anything for a friend” fundraiser. Cyndi is a sweetheart and we feel so lucky to have been part of her special night.  We met a lot of really neat people! We met several people who are cancer survivors, or who have a family member with cancer. It is comforting to know that we are not going through this alone. There are a lot of very good people in this world who are ready to serve and help others. Our family has witnessed amazing acts of kindness from our friends, family, and even complete strangers. We have all decided that we must pay it forward. We will never let a day go by without showing the compassion to others that has been shown to us. Life has really taken on a whole new meaning and purpose. We know what we must do in this life…. We must serve others with the pure love of Christ.

President Monson said:

“I believe the Savior is telling us that unless we lose ourselves in service to others, there is little purpose to our own lives. Those who live only for themselves eventually shrivel up and figuratively lose their lives, while those who lose themselves in service to others grow and flourish-and in effect save their lives.”

I am so thankful that we were able to participate in Cyndi’s event. We had an amazing experience and saw that people will truely do “anything for a friend”.

Thank you Cyndi and the rest of the AFAF family for giving Ty such a warm welcome. We love you!
