Calling New Members With Katie

Call in at 202 506 3907 to join now

Katie is having surgery tomorrow, so we’re spending the day together.  I told Katie I needed to call people to thank them for joining the FDL membership program and as the original Firedog, she said she wanted to help.

Katie is 13 years old and last week her tests showed she has lung cancer.  On the bright side, the tumor appears to be small with no lymph node involvement.  On the not-so-bright side, well…she’s 13 years old and she’s having surgery.

I told Katie this morning that it was the greatest gift of my life to wake up next to her every day for 13 years and be inspired by her wisdom and her unconditional love.  I always wanted FDL to be a place where people felt that kind of safety and support.  It’s the spirit that inspired the FDL Membership Program and Occupy Supply.

If you’re joining the FDL membership program today Katie may be calling you.
