THE STORY:

'Cancer' means a struggle unlike anything most of us will know, both for the Patients and for their Families. It effects everyone whose lives it touches, draining reserves energy, resources and hope at every turn; most especially for the parents and siblings of children with Cancer.

Families of children battling Cancer face unique challenges and stresses, particularly if there is only one parent. In patient treatment, for months at a time, requires parents be nearby and reachable often, putting stress on jobs and finances, even with Insurance the cost of care and housing and parking near the Hospital adds further financial stress, and the loss of attention to siblings and the stress and fear of potentially losing a child or a sibling brings pressure onto families that can tear them apart. The battle against the cancer is wages by the whole family, it's a long, dark road, and anything that can bring them some light and joy, recharging their hope, is so much more than welcome, it's an indescribable relief.

One Mission provides programs for children with Cancer and their families, to help bring some of that much needed light whenever possible. As important as funding research towards a cure, is helping to fund the programs that allow children and their families the relief that can keep them fighting their hardest to beat the disease.

I hope to raise more than $1,000, honestly, but realistically I don't know if I will be able to. If I can meet my goal, I will shave my head in solidarity with all the children battling cancer today, and all those who have battled in the past.

Not so long ago, a girl who was to become the strongest woman I know had her own battle with Cancer. Her family struggled through it with her, and being near them it was easy to see where she got her strength. This year, 4 years later, she was declared Cancer free. She is my cousin, and an inspiration. This fundraiser is dedicated to her.
