September is Over...

But the fight continues.

Thank you to all of you who supported us through Childhood Cancer Awareness Month... whether you went to eat at Chili's, donated to your favorite charity, registered to be a bone marrow donor, or donated blood or platelets, you helped make a difference in the life of a child fighting cancer.

Just because September is over, thousands of children continue to battle cancer every day. 46 new children will be diagnosed tomorrow and 7 children who have fought long and hard will die. It's an every day, life long battle. It will always be our battle. We are forever a cancer family and this will forever be our fight until a cure is found.

These are the faces of childhood cancer...

And please let us never forget the families whose children are no longer here on earth... after the cards and flowers stop... after the casseroles go away... those are the times when the families need us most... to tell them we remember. We remember their children. We remember they lived. We remember they fought. We remember they were here... and their legacy lives on in all of us. Because we remember, they are never truly gone.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month... for their sake, let's be aware all year long. 
PS. Thank you, Mimi for the beautiful videos!!

Know that you're in my thoughts and prayers!
Revelation 7:16-17 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
