My friend Mary Ruber (age 35) is losing her battle with stage 4 breast cancer. We are trying to make this Christmas special for her two little girls, Bekah age 6, and Ava age 3.

Team Ruber T-Shirts $10.00 each (up to size XL - $1 extra for each size up from there)
Color choice of: Black with Pink Lettering OR Pink with Black Lettering

Mary gets $4 from every shirt - it's not much, but it's something and you can show your support by wearing one! Please let me know if you want one! And please pass this on.

Here is the link to the "Team Ruber" group on Facebook:

How sad... Your friend is very pretty... I was drawn in by her smile... Do you have any pictures of the teeshirt? I'm interested, since I sleep in tees. Do you mind if I post this to the "spoonie board" (butyoudontlooksick.com)
Love life.

Thats fine. All the help we can get the better. May said she doesn't think she's going to make it until x-mas.
As for the shirt...I am working on a design as we speak. I will post it soon. We were just going to put "Team Rubber" in pink on it but then I figure I'd draw something alittle cooler for it.

Here is the basic design I came up with. The ribbon will be in pink on a black t-shirt or the ribbon will be black on a pink t-shirt...your choice.

  • Interests:I love to do yard work, re-arrange my home constantly, draw and get tattoos that have significant meaning to me, garage sales/yard sales fanatic. My home is haunted by I believe 2 spirits, so I'm never alone when everyone is asleep! I'm trying to label the gifts I have, although I try to keep them a secret from my husband..he wouldn't understand. My 20 year old is now living on his own and does so great! My 6 year old is a little me, and the baby will be 5 December. He's about 8-12 months behind, but that smile...that beautiful smile.

OMG Kats, that story just touched my heart. Thank you so much for sharing this womans very couragious (sp?) battle....kinda puts the rest of our/my little gripes & whines into perspective. I will continue to pray for her and her beautiful family.

Like Stella, I can't use t-shirts, but would like to send "a little something" to help. Is there a Paypal account available?

I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere

I sent my check on the 14th, and decided to go ahead and order a tee in support. I hope it made it to you... You are very blessed to have had the chance to meet such a beautiful young woman in your life. I'm keeping Mary in my thoughts.
