Thank you to those who continue to send in gift cards... I know they will serve these families well this Christmas.

I wanted to update some more gift cards we are in need of, but first let me update you on some of the families. I'm not sharing any specific story today. But here is why, many families don't have the means and desire to publicly share what they are facing. And so this year I have worked a little more with a few social workers to bring their stories and needs to us in hopes of better reaching those hidden behind anonymity.  I was told I could have as many as I could take, the need was tremendous. And under the part listed "greatest need" many simply wrote "for gas cards" or "groceries". And then I learned many of these children had incurable forms of brain cancer. One little one ended their cancer battle just this weekend. It feels so small, helping only through gift cards. But the alternative of doing nothing, well I will take small being at least something. So thank you... thank you for seeing the need and heartache with us. And for stepping into it. Sweet school classes, bereaved families, families currently fighting, girl scout troops and some using their holiday parties to ask for gift card donations have all been stepping in. Please know our thanks runs deep.

For those of you who can still step in to help, we so desire you do. As some now bury their babies, others fight through the terrible treatments, and others deal with the life long realities cancer has dealt we hope to say we care, and that you care. And know any notes you send for the families will be included in the packages.
