Fiona Ribbon Day: August 16, 2012

     Fiona Ribbon Day    

       August 16, 2012     

Hi--this is Zev hijacking Fiona's Blog.  Our dear friend Natalie with the Shreveport Bar Association started a Pink Ribbon day for Fiona on the day of her surgery at Johns Hopkins.

It would be cool if y'all took pictures of you wearing the pink ribbons on that day and either emailed them to Fi or posted them on Facebook...I am sure it would brighten her day.

Thanks to all for the thoughts, prayers and encouragement--it is amazing.  ZY.

This is how it all started; The SBA Women's Section is asking for your help in showing support for Fiona York on August 16, 2012, when she undergoes brain surgery at Johns Hopkins.

Thanks to Natalie Howell, the Women's Section secretary, hot pink ribbons will be available for all to wear that day as a show of support, positive energy, and prayer for Fiona during this difficult time. The "Fiona Ribbon" is available beginning Friday, August 10, 2012, at either the Bar Center from Dana Southern or the Caddo Parish Courthouse on the 3rd Floor at the receptionist window from Renee Almond.

The Women's Section is also collecting monetary donations to assist the York family with medical expenses. If you would like to contribute, please make your donation payable to the SBA. Any contributions can be left with Renee Almond at the courthouse or Dana at the Bar Center. Natalie will also collect donations and have ribbons available.

Though Fiona, our former Women's Section President, was initially told that 12 months would be a good goal considering the type of brain cancer with which she was diagnosed, subsequent opinions have offered more hope. This surgery should give her a better long term prognosis and, hopefully, allow her much more time with her husband Zev and their baby Zachary. As Natalie says, "I believe in miracles, and I believe in positive energy! So, I hope to send much love and positive energy her way!" So please join us by picking up your ribbon and wearing it on Thursday, August 16. Thanks so much for your support!
