Patti J. is a new favorite friend of FBR's. She and her husband live in Littleton and are long time supporters of FBR. Patti entered a contest in April, sponsored by Harlequin Books and author, Debbie Macomber. Debbie's newly released novel, Hannah's List, is all about second chances.
The contest asked entrants to compose an essay of 100 words or less about second chances. This is national contest and we're proud to say Patti's essay was selected as one of the final ten. Now the public has been asked to log on and vote for their favorite essay. The contest ends on July 4th and the winner receives a prize of $10,000.00. Patti has chosen to generously donate her earnings to winnings for us!!!!!!!!! This isn't a requirement folks. This is Patti's choice.
Patti was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer in 2007 and was given three months to live. That was 2.5 years ago and she's still going strong most days. Pattie tell us that she has already been given her second chance. So, in her essay, she promised to donate her winnings ($10k) to her local food bank so children and adults will have food on their tables, not go to bed hungry, and get the second chance we all deserve.
