CureSearch Champions 2010

When it comes to cancer fighting IS fun.  These are the  CureSearch Champions of 2010.  Childhood cancer survivors in Hampton Roads.   We walked together on Saturday at Mt. Trashmore.

  • Ella Wells is a surivor!
  • Jacob Ralston  is a suvivor too!

Nick's Ninjas

  • Nick’s Ninja’s raised more than $9,000 in his memory.

We all had so much fun walking, talking eating and playing.   Amid the bounce house, face painting, food and fun however, talking to Nick’s Dad was a sobering reminder of why we gathered on this  beautiful Saturday morning.       As he told me about their family’s fight to save Nick, and the 8 year old’s death,  I turned to look at my own 8 year old boy standing next to me.   Then when I introduced Nick’s 6 year old brother  to my 6 year old son I couldn’t help but fight back a tear as I thought ‘how would my son cope if he’d lost his brother?’    I can only imagine what their family goes through, what way too  many families go through because of this disease.

It’s not too late for you to help.   Go to my facebook page or directly to  CureSearch, where you can contribute.  You’ll also find more pictures from the event that raised nearly $30, 000 for childhood cancer.
