Fellow Server Needs Your Help!
Katie has a friend named Briana Gilligan (best last name ever). They worked together at a bar in New Jersey and have been best friends for 7 years. The picture is of them after a lunch shift. Briana (on the right) is now battling her third round of treatment to fight leukemia and she's currently in the ICU for a bleed in her lungs. Katie told me that Briana actually reads this blog and the Bitchy Waiter Facebook page. (If medicine isn't making Briana feel nauseous, then my writing skills certainly are and for that, I apologize, Briana.). Katie wants a shout out for Briana because they both believe in mind over matter and positive thinking. Katie tells me, "I believe in the power of prayer and over the past 3 years it has worked. She can't die I will just.. die."
I totally understand, Katie. This is something I can help with.
There are a lot of people who read this and if every single one of you took two seconds to send out some positive thoughts to Briana who is in a hospital room in Seattle, it can't hurt. And then if you took another second to click this "like" button, then even more people can know that someone is needing good vibes.
Imagine if you were sitting in a hospital room and you saw on Facebook that thousands of people were thinking about you. How could that not make you feel better? What if we are able to make her feel so much better that she kicks the ass of leukemia and she gets to go back home to her "awesome" boyfriend back in Belmar, NJ? We see stories like this "go viral" all the time, so why not Briana's story?
And if you want to do even more, you could consider going to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society website and leaving a donation. Click here to do that. I just did. You can give any amount you want and every little bit will help. You'll feel good if you do it, I promise.
Briana, if you are reading this, please know that Katie is not the only one who wants you to get better. Besides your friends and family and co-workers, there is at least one bitchy waiter who lives in Queens who wants you to make a full recovery and every person who is reading this feels the same way. If the power of positive thinking and the prayers of a thousand strangers can help, then you are well on your way to getting better.
Now go kick some leukemia ass!
