Total for Anna's birthday -


$5,830

We did great thanks to you! clap

I received this very touching note from Melissa -

You'd think that at almost 8 years, we would be used to this life...settled in, even.

But we find, at least for our family, that brain cancer never stops. Not a day goes by that we don't have challenges and mountains to climb, with and for our Anna. We aren't strong. We aren't amazing. We aren't anything more than any other parents and family who would face this monster. And we are oh, so tired.

For some reason, this last year has been one of the toughest. We have hurt more, cried more, grieved more, been more exhausted, and just been....missing her so, so much. Her birthday set us all back. Instead of just the sheer joy of celebrating her, we also all internally grieved. It was so hard. We made her happy, but the week before, on her day, and the week after, we were all in such a funk. For some reason, her day just made us miss her more.

Sometimes we feel like the whole world has spun on without us. That time has marched forward but that we are all stuck. Especially when we listen to her relive all her memories each night at bedtime and they are all the same.

BUT, when we think of you all, when we recount how many times and years you have each stood with us in the pain of the journey; supported us and held us up....well, that's what brings the joy back. We are so blessed. We are beyond eternally grateful to each of you for your love and support: for the care that your gifts enable us to do for her and give to her.

Thank you, thank you for sitting with us in this pain. Thank you for loving her and for loving us.

You just don't know what that support means.

We love you all

Melissa


My friends, this is why we help.

God Bless Anna Mott

Doctors have a concern with something they spotted on Anna's recent MRI...

If you're the praying type, now might be a good time...

It is an honor and privelege to know them.



God Bless Anna Mott

I trust everyone on this side of the pond had a good Thanksgiving considering the circumstances.

It is once again time for our Christmas fundraiser for Miss Anna and her family.

We have been doing this since Anna was first diagnosed in 2012.

Many of Anna’s ballet friends have started their young careers. Several are married, and a few have young children.

Anna remains at home, depending on 24/7 care from her family.

Your donation has a measurable impact on helping the Motts with medical and prescription costs each and every month.

It is also a reminder to the Motts that Anna is not forgotten and that she is loved.

To donate by Paypal, my email is [email protected] State it is a gift for Anna in the subject.

To pay by check, please indicate “Anna Mott” in the memo field. My street address is

David Duke
78 North Peachtree Street
Norcross GA 30071

Let's help Anna and her family have a great Christmas!

Count your blessings, and God bless Anna Mott

David

Thanx, David. Pass along our best to the Motts, and give Anna & Mom a kiss on the cheek too.

You know, to some people (formerly including myself) the annual commercial over-use of the "Nutcracker" theme around this time of year used to have me cringing and on edge.

Since the first time we got the details about Anna the ballerina, (Nutcracker-related, you know), all that changed FOR THE BETTER.

Now, every time I hear it, I am reminded of just how fortunate most of us are. I'm reminded of what it actually means to be living a life where EVERY DAY is a trial greater than any I have ever experienced. I'm reminded of people that have endured and withstood life-changing events with dignity and continued hope.

I can't say I've seen a lot, I haven't travelled the world where there is so much more to experience. But, I've seen enough to know that I'll never measure up to the Mott family, and I will do everything in my power to help when I can, hoping somehow it will make their lives that little bit more bearable.

Merry Christmas to my wonderful BritBike family, and especially to Anna and her family.

Will do what I can, gotta see what the Accounts Receivable brings. Been off my beat since the accident, slowly recovering, insurance company dragging their collective feet, might have to stick to a Christmas card with Chick-Fil-A inside.

Gordon and I made the trip last year to the Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation Run last year to meet up with David and the Motts! A grand weekend! And that smile!

Evidently a neurological thing, perhaps compounded by covid?

In a watch and wait pattern for now.

A note from Melissa:

2020

Wow. What a year.

It marked 8 years of Anna and our family in this journey of pain and triumph.

She has now been blind and gone from us half the time we had her.

We've had 8 years of getting to know and take care of our new Anna. 8 years of lessons learned and hurdles jumped. We are pooped out, but still steadily taking one step forward into the unknown at a time.

It was a year of all new challenges for us: , job loss, more health problems for Anna including a scare in December with covid where we really thought Jesus was taking her home, and more. It seemed to be even more than normal for us, and man, that's a bunch! Lol

But we weren't the only ones in pain and facing challenges this year. All of us were in 2020 together, doing the best we could with the hands we all were dealt.

That's why the support and love you all have shown us means even so much more.

Even going through all you guys have this year, you chose to love and support our Anna and us.

And for that, there just aren't adequate words in English to thank you.

We are overwhelmed with your goodness and love. We feel it. We are changed and made better.

Thank you. THANK YOU.


God Bless Anna Mott
