Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.

- Ambrose Redmoon

We don't fight the same battle but we fight the same war!

Sunday is the big day.  Friends, family and strangers will join together...We will join with other people...fighting.  We are not all fighting the same battle..but we are fighting the same war.  We will come together under one organization..and we will share in the struggle that is a fight against the unfair and unjust things that life can throw at any of us at any time.  We will fight HLHS, breast cancer, brain cancer, and the struggles of being a wounded veteran.   We fight hospital bills, insurance companies, and pharmacies.  We understand what it means to live in a hospital, to see our child, husband, wife or family member suffer.  We know what it means to get on our knees and BEG God for just one more day, just one more minute, one more second with our loved one.  We know what it is like to hold our breaths when the phone rings and its the doctor..will it be good news, bad news???  We don't know each other..but we understand each other.  We are mothers, father, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, co-workers, bosses, next door neighbors, friends and strangers.  And on Sunday we will join together to fight...but no one should have to fight this war or this battle alone.  And we don't and never will...I have found strength , conviction and inspiration from the other beneficiaries of steps-together.  I have found kindness, support and love in Courtney and Mike Newman, the angels sent from heaven who are steps together.  I have found renewed faith, light and generosity in the people who donated to or joined our team.  We hope that you will join us...and that Sunday and for years to come that you will support steps together...
