I have always had a passion for helping Children. I have always had a weak spot for them, no matter the size or age. Big Brother Big Sister Is my passion. I started being a mentor 5 years ago in Warren County, IL. It happens to be one of the poorest countries in the world. My passion grew when my eyes were opened up to St. Jude Children's Research Hosptial. Up til Dawn was what the fundraiser was called. After all the money was raised for the hospital all of the participants stayed awake all night and listened to survival stories of children with cancer who were admitted into the hospital. I have always had a passion to visit there, however I have not had the chance yet. I am going to school for nursing and my number one reason is because of St. Jude. I love how they do not reject anyone and the atmosphere is so very positive. This could not exist without our help and people who do not act on their passion.
