Hello Friends and Family,

I joined the Charlotte Good Cookies Blackhawk Bake Sale fundraiser with Cookies for Kids' Cancer because I want to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer.

This Saturday is the 10th Annual Cookies For Kids' Cancer Bake Sale in Charlotte.  Jack, Andrew and I will be volunteering once again.  We went to our first bake sale 7 years ago.  We had only been in Charlotte for a few weeks, Andrew was a newborn and Jack was 2.  Our fabulous pre-school teacher sent an email to families to let us know about the bake sale, as it was started by a mom whose son, Grier, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma while he was a student in her class.  Grier was 2 when he started his battle, the same age Jack was when I learned about Cookies For Kids' Cancer.  Grier was a warrior, but lost his battle when he was nine.  The same age Jack is now.  

These battles, whether they are 7 years or 8 months, need to never happen.  Kids need to be kids and have a chance to grow up.

Did you know that cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S.? There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right now. With less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute's budget going to all childhood cancer combined, I knew it was important for me to get involved.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today in support of my fundraising efforts. You can make an on-line donation with your credit card by clicking on the "donate" button on this page.

Together we can make a difference for kids' battling cancer. Thank you for your support!
