We can't even begin to thank everyone who is readying the blog. It really helps us to know that you are out there , looking out for us, checking in.This is such a lonely time. I miss my son so much, the pain doesn't go away even as the days keep going by. Therapy helps and then it is also very hard. Hard work.......I miss him so much. There's not a lot more to share but that.
This is the latest update from Holly Anderson. We got the the Oriental Theater for the benefit concert-MARK YOUR CALENDARS for JAN 18, 2008!
Hello Teri and Page~
During the past few weeks we have received 10 more gifts and Cash's account in now up to $19,096! We are honored to be accepting these donations in his name and are still receiving donations everyday! I know we will hit that $25,000 number very soon.
Attached please find the names and addresses of those who have sent in gifts since August 16, 2007. I will be sending another envelope of cards written directly to you tommorow. You should receive it by the weekend. As you know, we just moved our offices to the new hospital and are still ironing out a few glitches. If for some reason you do not receive the envelope by the weekend please let me know.
I also wanted to follow up on some dates in October for all of us to meet again. We are happy to come to you this time if you would like. Please know, you are always welcome here at our office, but do let me know what you feel the most comfortable with.
Everyday, I am truly so touched as I see the donations and notes that are coming in. Thank you. As always, please feel free to contact me at anytime if you have any further questions.

As the time comes closer we are going to need help:
selling tix, obtaining items for a Silent Auction, putting up posters.
So, if you want to help out in anyway: start asking your people(hairdressers, restaurants, ski shops, dog groomers, artists..)..anyone who may want to donate an item to be auctioned off.
We'll keep you posted as we figure out how to do this.
Thanks so much...onward with hope.

As I have said many times before and always will: I believe that Cash is a Spiritual powerhouse, he came to Page and I , he chose us to be his parents. He is a gift. I hope you can all feel his presence with you, celebrate it. He is magic.
xoxo, Cash's Mommy
I guess what I am trying to say is... you are not alone and I believe that Cash is with you and you are both finding ways to see that. I think that is really a gift that he has given you to open up your minds to see things in a different way and know he loves and supports you both.

It has been heartwarming to say the very least that so many people are out there in the world , cheering us on, watching out for Page and I, celebrating Cash's Spirit. This morning Page came home from the gym to find the most beautiful card in our mailbox. It was from our neighbor Marc. It's hard to even describe how touching it was. Like the street just got a bit safer . I have felt odd at times walking the dogs around our little neighborhood. I used to walk almost daily with Cash all over.I have felt like there's this Scarlet letter on me: the woman who lost her child. But now I know it's probably in my head.
One of my Clients/friends called me today to say he was watching a Red Fox out his window. I love that.
There has been a shift in my heart. I cry a lot still, and probably always will. But something is different. There is a lightness too. I actually felt happiness yesterday. and today. It's weird to feel two things at once. I feel that sometimes Page , Cash and I need to wear Super Hero Capes to pretend to be strong. So if you see me driving around with a red cape on, that's why. Pretending to be strong that day.
Team Cash photos needed. Please send them in.
Benefit Concert for the Memorial Garden Fund:
Page and I are in the beginning stages of planning a Benefit Concert to raise $ for the Memorial Garden Fund. There will be a lot to do and we will need a bunch of help. If you are interested in helping: just let us know. We are hoping to have it in Mid January 2008 in Denver. It's a great thing to put our energy into right now.
It was 3 months on Tuesday. I miss my son so very much.
Love to all of you from my heart,
I hope this email finds you well. Attached please find the first list of names and address of friends and family who have donated to the Cash Scanlon Phillips Memorial Fund. This list is as of July 31, 2007. I will be sending you another list like this at the end of August with additional names.
A few things....on the first line you will see, "Friends," which is representing the envelope of cash that you brought in. Also, I wanted to ask you about Mr. and Mrs. Robert Raynolds....unfortunately the address on their check seems to be invalid as the receipt we sent to them was returned to our office. I have called them, but their phone doesn't pick up. I wonder if you know of another way to contact them so we can have their receipt sent to them and most importantly, thank them for their gift!
I also want to talk to you about some dates in October to meet again. I spoke to Steve and he confirmed that we would not be able to have much discussion until after the new hospital is open, but he did want me to get a date on the calendar. He wants to be able to say to the people we need to have at the meeting that we are going to meet with you on this date and would like to have information. So...anytime after October 15th, Monday through Thursday, would work for us. Please email me some dates and I will get this set up.
And finally, with another gift that came in this morning, their is now a total of $18,566 in the account!
Please don't hesitate to call me with any further questions or needs.
Have a good day.

These are prayer flags of Cash's hands that my Mom, Grammy Sandy and Page's Mom, Nana made while we were still in Children's Hospital. They are flying proudly at my parents camp in Northern Maine. My Mom said they also saw a Red Fox after she hung the flags. It looked at her and she said" Hi Cashie". My kid is magic!!!!!!

I am thrilled to let you know that we have received 9 new gifts in this past week, and even more thrilled to tell you that Cash's account has a total of $17,531! I will continue to send weekly updates to you on the ever so growing total. Page, please know we received the stock transfer gift on Monday. And Tes, we received a sweet card from Brenda and Joseph Scanlon and family. It is truly a pleasure to be working with you and I look forward to what the future will bring.
As far as the next steps that are to happen regarding the garden. I don't want to hold you off any longer, but the truth is, I just don't think we can have further discussions until the move to the new hospital has happened. The project is on time, however everyone is still scrambling to get 4 months of transition discussions and details ironed out before the doors to open on October 1st. I think this will be a good plan to wait so we can have all the right people paying attention and focused. I promise I will not let this fall through the cracks.
And finally, I will be sending you information regarding the names of friends and family who have sent in gifts soon. Our processing department runs the list once per month. As always, please do not hesitate to call or email me with any questions, concerns or the need for information.

On the morning we arrived back home after Cash passed , Dave/Atta was standing at our front door. He then said a Red Fox just whipped thru our yard. It was beautiful and I could tell Dave thought it was his grandson Cashie, checking in on us and letting his family know he's ok, able bodies and running around.
I don't know how long this all takes, what to do next except live a life that will make my son proud of his Mommy. I just miss him so much. Yet I got out of bed again today, to see the red fox and know my son is safe where he is right now. Until he's with me again.
Please keep praying for us all,
