Share Your Sweet Tooth to Help Fight Against Lung Cancer...

Coming up on 3 years ago, we lost my Papa to a horrible battle of Lung Cancer. This year, my sister and I decided to put together a team and walk in the Breathe Deep Boston, 5k Walk To Stop Lung Cancer on November 5th.

Our team name is "Papa's Pennies". This may sound weird to some of you but after my papa passed away we met with a Medium (someone who communicates with spirits). She told us that one of the easiest ways for spirits of loved ones passed to communicate with us is through metal and coins. We coincidently started finding coins everywhere! My dad always found dimes, and for my sister and I it was always pennies (always tails up), we jokingly started calling them "Papa's Pennies" not really thinking too much of it until they started showing up in some pretty mysterious and impossible places.
1. My sister, some friends and I were shopping and by my foot there was a penny (heads up). My sister said “Oh look a papa penny!” and I said “No it’s heads up, it’s not a papa’s penny!” No sooner did I say that we looked down again and there was another penny about 2 inches next to it that was tails up!
2. When Phil and I bought our house the women who lived in it previously left a lot of her stuff in it. When we were cleaning it up my mother and I were taking pictures and decorations off the wall. One of the decorations in the kitchen was screwed we removed the screws and lifted it and “BOINK” 2-3 pennies came flying out from the back of it.

I could go on and on with crazy stories…but I think you get the idea on why our team name is this…
