Cookies for Kid’s Cancer
The phone rang late that evening. Amy, without a word of greeting, told us to come to the hospital now. Grier was very sick. Ross and I helped raise Amy, like one of our very own and Grier was our God Child. We rushed to CMC to meet Amy and her husband Jeff and especially see Grier. Amy ran for me and with tears in her eyes said they just told us Grier had Neuroblastoma, a dreadful and aggressive cancer only found in children. After those words, things changed forever.
You never think your child or grandchild or god son will ever have to face the challenges of cancer. People really don’t know about childhood cancer until it affects them personally. But it is a reality that this illness is the leading killer of our precious children and it receives the least money and resources in research than any other disease in America.
Haston has always been about children, helping through Little League Baseball and many other special causes, and now Cookies for Cancer Kids. We know that the money raised by CfKC goes directly for Children’s research, unfunded by most other agencies across this land. So, every dollar raised goes to make sure that the word cancer will never again be the diagnosis of a child’s illness. We stand committed to help and support this noble cause.
Grier, through the help of many and the blessings of our Lord, fought the good fight for six years and six months, inspiring everyone he encountered from North Carolina to New York to Philadelphia and all points across this wonderful nation.
Please know that it is an honor to help Cookies for Kid’s Cancer with our time and whatever resources we have.
