Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month

I cannot forget what we have come through. September is a month for raising awareness for pediatric cancers. A cause that is seriously underfunded and not in the public eye or thought. It's sad and shameful! Luke is a cancer survivor..a miracle! We have been blessed by so many organizations like ACCO, Candlelighters, CureSearch, Life with Cancer Center, Teardrops to Rainbows...all of which need funding to operate. They dedicate their time and money to pediatric cancer patients and their families..they deserve a huge THANK YOU!! They deserve the funding they need! By raising awareness we may be able to someday buy a case of bottled water with a gold ribbon on it..or a can of soup...not criticizing (all cancer research needs funding), but these are our kids...the future generation...something more must be done!!

Luke today...a healthy, strong, funny little boy. Almost 4 years in remission, he continues to bring joy to our lives with all of his crazy ways! His journey prepared us for what lies ahead. You will all hear about Rare Disease Day as well. We need funds for Ataxia-Telangiectasia research also. We have a lot of work to do, we thank you for all your support. Lets get the word out!!
