I joined LOLLIPOP six years ago as a board member because I couldn't imagine taking a pass. Pediatric cancer is almost the cruelest thing I can think of...children with it, or any other life-threatening disease, quarantined off in isolation as they battle illness is even more unimaginable.
LOLLIPOP brings laughs, smiles, escape - even for a moment - from these cold, hard realities. It's survival and funding is crucial. We do it for the parents, as well, who can't take any more.
I give of my own money significantly. I tell you this because there is nothing worse than a guy who doesn't walk the walk. I carry the bulk, but I would be deeply thankful if you'd support me and LOLLIPOP. My fundraising goal is $25,000...hopefully 200 bucks from my friends will add up to that. Of course, feel free to surprise us. :)

“This providential day for Cassie and her sister was just what she needed to feel like a normal kid, even if it was for only one afternoon. It has been a long time since we have seen the girls genuinely happy and truly enjoying themselves.” --Michelle Ehrle (Parent)
