My Volunteer Activities

Furthermore, Crystal founded the Laugh at Cancer Support Community which helps families who have been touch by cancer, whether directly or indirectly. The community creates and organizes different projects, which help patients who are in the hospital. Additionally, she works with nursing homes each year, because many patients don’t get regular visitors.

Mrs. Kauffman built two successful projects called Wings of Hope Project, which allows her to gather “Thinking of You” cards. These cards are distributed to various places, depending who the support group is working with this year.

The other project she created is called, Blankets of Hope Project, which allows her to gather Christmas cards and other small gifts. The gifts include throw blankets, stuff for adult, and toys for children. These gifts are distributed to the same place that we partner with during April during the Wings of Hope Project. Look for our support community on Facebook.

Time Changes Yet Things Remain The Same


My son and I spending the day together.

Randa and Zack My son and I spending the day together.

Recently, my life has been changing in many ways that have made me assess my own life. A few of my best friends have moved to other states, which made me a little sad at first. However, we have technology like Facebook and cell-phones to keep in touch. Then, my daughter graduated from high school and has an apartment in a nearby city. She lives with one of her best friends, whom I love like my own daughter.

She has landed her first job and is now looking into getting her own transportation, which makes me so proud of her. She has been dating her boyfriend for over a year now. He is a Christian and I love him, as his is my own son. They have both made a vow to wait until they are married before having sex. I am so proud of them both!

Next, another change came knocking, my son moved to North Dakota with his father and his step-mother to start a whole new adventure in his life at almost 15 years-old. Well, at first, I took these changes pretty hard!

Now, I am embracing them in a positive way, instead of being negative. I am spending time every week with my daughter and her roommate. Additionally, I am dog-sitting their sweet puppies, until they can come up with their pet deposit they need and falling in love at the same time.

I talk to my son multiple times a day, texting, and picture messaging each other. So, I have learned that even though we live in different states or cities, we can still keep our relationships alive and growing stronger.

Changes are a part of life as a friend or a parent, but thanks to technology we can stay close to those we love and share our lives. Honestly, I am excited to see what this new chapter of my life will hold! Maybe now, I can finish my book and get published or land a job in the business communications field.

Only God knows what doors will open for me and what friends will walk beside me next. He also knows my relationships will grow in the future and how my life will change further. Currently, I am happy that my husband and I have more quality time together, since things have changed..
