I have been invovled with Making Headway through fundraising efforts over the last 14 years. The people from the foundation who have participated in our annual Walk A Thon are all wonderful, giving people who have made a difference in the lives of the family members and friends of our angel, Elizabeth, who fought a tough fight before going to heaven in 1997. Making Headway is an inspirational, supportive community of people that will always be part of my life in memory of Elizabeth.
