Expected to be done with treatment in December of 2016, James is a happy boy who loves video games, super heroes, trucks…all things little boy. He has good days and some not so good days as a side effect from his treatment.

With all that he has been through, his family says they are so very thankful that most days he is just a wild little boy.

Moms in Training Savannah What is Moms In Training?
Moms In Training is a flexible, 12-week training program for Savannah area moms to get in shape, meet other moms and help fight blood cancers. Trainings take place for one hour on the weekends with other social event opportunities during the week.

Even though it’s called Moms in Training, dads are welcome to join, too. You don’t necessarily need to be a mom to take part. If someone is interested in training for the half marathon relay and has lots of patience with kiddos, they are welcome to join the program too.

Why Join?
Leukemia is the most common cancer in children and adolescents less than 20 years old. In 1964, the chance of surviving Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), the most common form of childhood leukemia, was 3%. Thanks to treatments advanced by LLS, children 15 years old and younger who are fighting ALL today have a 92% chance for survival.

LLS and Moms In Training participants are saving lives, and all moms are invited to join the fight for a cure.

Can I bring my child to trainings?
Yes! As long as your baby is able to remain in the stroller, you are welcome to bring him or her to trainings. The workouts allow you to exercise with a stroller, but it is not necessary. Some moms prefer to use the hour as “me” time.

What do trainings consist of?
Trainings will consist of running, walking, cross training and stretching.

I’m not an athlete! Can I really do this?
Yes! Moms of all levels join the program. You will receive incredible coach support as well as a training calendar that you can follow on your own. The program is extremely flexible, and you are supported 100% of the way.

How much do I fundraise to participate?
Moms commit to raising $500 to help fight blood cancers. There is a $50 registration fee to join which is credited toward your fundraising goal. Upon registering, you will receive your own fundraising website as well as fundraising support from LLS staff. The average mom raises $1,500!

I know someone personally affected by cancer. Can I train in honor or memory of them?
Absolutely. Moms in Training encourages you to honor someone you know who has been affected by ANY type of cancer.

How do I sign up?

DoubleTree Hotel & Old Savannah Tours ghost trolley tour = Perfect Date Night or Girls’ Night Out

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

DoubleTree Savannah Deals

Spending an evening in Savannah’s historic district is always a treat.

But spending an evening in the historic district on a ghost trolley tour, followed by a night in a posh downtown hotel with views of the Savannah River & bridge, then waking to a breakfast that manages to be both decadent and healthy – well, that is downright divine.

We recently had the memorable experience of doing all that at DoubleTree by Hilton Savannah Historic District. We were there as part of a special free night for Savannah bloggers organized by DoubleTree & could not have had a better experience.

DoubleTree’s Spook, Slumber & Save package is the ideal date night staycation getaway for parents who really need a night off or for moms’ groups in need of a rockin’ moms’ night out. The hotel is right next to River Street & City Market.

DoubleTree Hotel Savannah Historic District Downtown Oh and did we mention, the ghost trolley tour does pick up and drop off at the hotel.

Think fun fall-themed drinks in DoubleTree’s hotel bar followed by truly spooky stories aboard the open-air Old Savannah Tours ghost trolley tour.  DoubleTree’s Spook, Slumber & Save package includes one tour ticket per person for the enticing two-hour ghost tour, overnight accommodations,  parking with complimentary valet service and a hot Southern breakfast each morning of your stay.

Our ghost tour guide – Savannah native Desiree – had a knack for sharing Savannah’s haunting lore in a way that made it both entertaining & educational. We crept down the stairs into the rum cellar of the Pirates’ House & really hoped for a ghost encounter while inside the “Infrared Room” at the Sorrel-Weed House, where you can watch eerie orbs on the four cameras located in the basement.

The ghost stories Desiree told & downtown haunted landmarks we visited were a welcome reminder of something all busy Savannah parents need to remember –  that we live in a remarkably rich city that is simply teeming with history and depth.

What better way to celebrate that than with a sweet Fall staycation in our very own downtown Savannah.

And with a warm DoubleTree by Hilton chocolate chip cookie!

Learn more about the Spook, Slumber & Save package here.

Survival Training classes for women & moms/daughters, Savannah

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

Get off the X classes in Savannah

Universal Survival Innovations has added two new local training programs open to the public.

Get Off The X course for moms/daughters or fathers/sons

The first is an overnight course named “Get off the X” and is held at USI’s training facility in Cochran Ga. It is a very exciting course that trains fathers and sons or mothers and daughters to work as a team to satisfy their needs. This bonding experience is taught using techniques required for survival as if isolated in combat. Training includes camouflage and movement techniques, tactical navigation, water procurement, evasion fire craft, signaling/proof of life, defeating common restraints and culminates in an escape scenario.

If you can learn how to take care of yourselves like the Special Forces do, then surviving gets that much easier…and it’s a lot of fun. This is a gender based course so it’s either moms and daughters or dads and sons. Learn more here

Street Smarts class for women, youth groups

The second course is called “Street Smarts” and was originally designed for Women as a PROACTIVE protection course as opposed to the REACTIVE courses available, such as firearms training. “Street Smarts” is based on the concept that identifying a potential threat and responding to it is better than trying to fight off and survive an attack. “Street Smarts” includes lessons in surveillance detection, threat avoidance, defeating common restraints, dealing with security and getting to safety.

“Street Smarts” is a two day course which is perfect for traveling professionals, missionaries, mothers, and youth groups. It is held in either Savannah GA or Columbia SC.  Learn more here. 

Online classes

Online USI provides training through a division called ASIST – Applied SERE Instruction and Security Training. USI has online videos that address basic fire craft and improvised shelters. Several videos are in production and will be available in the near future. USI also has the capability of producing video training on custom subjects per clients’ request. USI videos can be previewed by clicking here. 

Custom survival kits

USI’s Custom survival kits support  their training and their clients. Their kits are in the hands of outdoor enthusiasts, military members and government agents such as those from the Department of Natural Resources; basically anyone who can find themselves isolated from immediate support/rescue.

The following kits have been the most popular among outdoor enthusiasts.

Basic Fire Craft Kit (shown below): currently being used in a new Fire Craft Program USI designed for the Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington and is being presented to the Girl Scouts of America.
