To the Readers of My Big Girl Pants,

                     Again this year, we are writing a blog post to commemorate the anniversary of our sweet Bridget's death on April 4th. It is hard to believe she has been gone for two years. We miss her terribly, each and every day, and we know that you, her good friends and blog readers understand that pain and miss her as well. We will gather as a family this weekend and raise a toast to Bridget and comfort one another by remembering.

                      It helps us a great deal to know that Bridget is not forgotten. A tangible proof of that is to witness all the good that is ongoing in her name. The Bridget Spence Fund, launched by the Pink Angels continues to grow and to directly support the research of Dr. Ann Partridge. In October, the first annual Bridget Mooney Spence Award was presented at the "Celebrating Young and Strong" Gala, held at the Boston Harbor Hotel, to benefit Dr. Partridge's Young Women with Breast Cancer Program. Bridget's family and many of her friends attended, and we felt her presence strongly, knowing she would have danced into the wee hours! Nothing would have made Bridget happier than knowing she was, in a way, giving back to Dr. Partridge for all of her love and care during Bridget's cancer journey.

                        And so, we come again to ask you to remember Bridget, with even a small donation, by clicking on the Pink Angels' website below and following it to the Bridget Spence Fund. It is not hard to imagine Bridget, flashing her gorgeous smile, and being grateful for all of you.

                        Many thanks......................
