She is truly a fighter and we are all crossing our fingers and holding our breath in hopes that this extensive round of radiation to her spine will buy us more time...lots if we have our wish. I'm still believing and hoping for a miracle.
In honor or Lisa, and all the other childhood cancer warriors, we are having a BLAST! BLAST 3 to be specific. BLAST is the fundraiser we did the last two years in and effort to raise funds for, and awareness about Childhood Cancer. I won't preach here about the statistics nor the limited funding directed to Childhood Cancer, but know that Childhood Cancer gets a very small percentage of funding for research and is the number one disease killer of children.
BLAST 3 will be on Sept 15 at St John Neumann Church. There will be a spaghetti dinner, bake sale, family fun games and a euchre tournament.
Check out the website www.BLASTnb.com for more details and please plan on joining us:)
For those of you interested in helping, we are in need of:
- Help with website coding
- 100 Colored Copies of different documents
- Gently used children's books and stuffed animals for prizes
- Raffle donations or baskets
- Volunteers for Sep 15
- Individuals who can spread the word to community schools and sports teams and encourage them to wear gold during the month of Sept
