A Great Honor

Let Your Light ShineIt would appear that my writing and professional status in the area has taken root, finally. Earlier this semester, I got a phone call from the new Director of the CF Foundation for South Florida, Pat Warbritton. She and the events coordinator, Mary Calvert, met me at the campus Subway between classes one day to discuss what I could do for the foundation to help with social media, fundraising, etc. I offered to write some tips for fundraising using social media and entertain the possibility of doing more after graduation, as the Great Strides is just a week after commencement but there is a bike tour tentatively scheduled around Halloween. They offered me a place on the Cycle for Life committee, which I think I will take them up on in June if the offer stands.

I got another call yesterday from them asking if I would write the Patient’s Perspective piece for the next issue of the chapter’s newsletter. I have free reign over the topic and length, so I’m going to kick around some more ideas I have from my course work this semester in Advanced Composition and see if I can develop one into a two-page piece that both educates and informs in my typical style. I’m not sure if it gets printed or will be distributed on the CFF main website or just the chapter’s site, but look for it in June here, because you can be sure there will be a link in the sidebar. /grin


  1. I'm thinking you could just copy and paste the piece you did for my blog. That would wake up a few people. 🙂 Just kidding. Can't wait to see what you do come up with. No pressure but it better be fricking incredible and blow the doors off of the place, so to speak. I expect nothing less from you, my friend. Nothing less. Tell it like it is.

  2. Thanks, John. I plan on waking people up. Your vote of confidence shall be a
    spur. I analyzed my writing some today and realized that I have a similar
    style to Karl Marx, /gasp! One sort of my pieces tend to be calls to
    revolution of various sorts. Viva revolucion!
