FUNDRAISER

 

 

 

ARE YOU BORED?

I have noticed that recently a few folks have unsubscribed to our newsletter (shock!) and after some reflection –

I figured out why….

Life around our homestead has been peaceful, well sort of…Let’s face it, we ARE HAVING A FUNDRAISER THIS COMING WEEKEND.

But – Steven is well.

Thank God.

Boring.

So, lately my messages have been about research, people,

special events like CUREFEST

CANCERCON

and our awesome

Be Calm & Stay Strong Wellness Program.

So, yes life is boring – and isn’t that grand???

But please remember that there are hundreds of families out there

who would like to be bored.

Their children are fighting for their lives.

Let’s pray for them.

Let’s send them love and support.

And, let’ s support

Childhood, Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Research. 

Remember, we will not rest until there is a Cure!

(not so boring after all…)

Summer is Gone!!!

This has been a busy summer!

Check out our photographs and see what we have been up to!!!

Childhood, Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Advocacy

Hard At Work in Washington DC

Our GO FUND ME Page on Facebook

has generated $1470 to support the distribution

of Wellness Bags to AYA Cancer Patients!

Thank you for your generosity!

 

The Angie Fowler AYA Cancer Institute granted us $7500 to increase the distribution of our Be Calm & Stay Strong Wellness gift bags. We look forward to reaching out to more AYA Cancer Medical Facilities to help and support young cancer patients during their treatment.

and last but not least…

 SAVE THE DATE!!!!

GO FOR THE GOLD – CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

FRIENDS

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT SEPTEMBER IS CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH. 

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT CHILDHOOD CANCER SURVIVORS BECOME ADOLESCENTS AND YOUNG ADULTS WITH SECONDARY ILLNESSES 

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT EACH DAY PARENTS ARE MOURNING THE LOSS OF THEIR CHILD AS A RESULT OF CANCER.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT PEDIATRIC CANCER IS THE #1 DISEASE RELATED KILLER OF KIDS IN THE UNITED STATES.

KNOW THAT THE NIH (NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF HEALTH – WHERE YOUR TAX DOLLARS GO) GETS $30 BILLION FOR RESEARCH ANNUALLY, YET CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH GETS LESS THAN $200 MILLION. THE DEADLIEST CHILDHOOD CANCERS GET LITTLE OR NO FUNDING.

IT’S NOT A MATTER OF MORE MONEY, IT’S A MATTER OF PRIORITIES.ribbon

 

 

 

 

WE MUST MAKE CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH A NATIONAL PRIORITY AND GIVE KIDS PEDIATRIC CURES, TREATMENTS, PROTOCOLS AND HOPE!!!

fight! conquer! CURE!!!
