It is so hard to believe this day is here once again, somehow every year it does manage to show up. It is RAK (Random Act of Kindness) day. A few years back on January 7th I decided to change Wylder “Diagnosis Day” to a day where we would all do a random act of kindness in his honor instead. It really helps to take some of the fear and anxiety away from the day, knowing good deeds are happening in his honor across the globe. It really helps to change the focus of what seems like an impossible day, to now a day that will help another … and how someone new will learn of our most beautiful Warrior. It will certainly always be a day of reflection for me, and to be truthful it feels surreal that this day back in 2010 happened. I still dream of waking up from what I am hopeful was only a nightmare diagnosis.
I will look forward to waking up today, January 7, 2014 knowing how many are thinking of Wylder and how a RAK for Wylder will reflect someone in a positive way TODAY. That is perfectly Wylder way.
We are just 8 days away from Phil’s BIG arrival to run the PF Changs Rock N’ Roll Marathon here in AZ. One day a kiddo’s “Diagnosis Day” won’t be followed by the grim words “there are no options, no treatments, no cure” … they will say “call Wylder Nation Foundation” … And HOPE will be their protector! Until that day.
(If each person that reads this blog donates only $10 as their RAK today, we will raise $10,000 overnight and reach our goal by morning)
HUGE thank you to all who have donated and continue to show us your support for our commitment. What you do DOES matter and WILL help other kids. Thank you all for your love and HOPE ALWAYS.
Wylder, I will forever be blessed because I had you. You will always be my greatest gift. See you in my dreams little darling. xoxo
RAK Day 2014
