Fighting Against Childhood Cancer

 
This year my husband and I have started a team to walk and raise money for St. Jude.  Just in case you aren't familiar with who they are or what they do, this is the short of it... they take the toughest childhood cancer cases.  They take the children in and do all they can to help save there lives.  The parents never get a single bill for housing, care, food... nothing, ever.  They can do this because of people like us and people like you helping, raising money and giving what you can.
 
The fight this year is particularly near and dear to my heart because my father just passed away from cancer in April.  No one should ever have to live through that.  It's sad when a grown man who has enjoyed and traveled the world goes like that, but nothing is more upsetting and unfair than when a child who hasn't experienced much more than his families love has to battle with this horrible disease.
 
Every time a child is saved, the research is passed on to other doctors and clinics and can save thousands more children.  It's an amazing cause and they are an amazing place.
 
I'm asking that if anyone is out there who wants to help, please click on the link below and donate to our teams walk.  100% of the proceeds we raise go straight to St. Jude's.  We get nothing but the happiness of helping.  Even if you can only give a $1.00, every bit counts and is appreciated by us more than you can imagine.
 
Please feel free to visit my fundraiser page below and visit back to see how much we raise for the children.  And thank you so much in advance to anyone who pitches in.
