Parents should never outlive their children - truer words could never be said especially when a child succumbs to sickness at 3 1/2 years old. This is the circumstance of our friends, Michael and Audra Hughes and the unfathomable challenge of dealing with the loss of their daughter, Sylvie Rose Hughes. A beautiful, vibrant and charismatic little girl who loved princesses. No parent should have to endure this loss nor should a child be forced to wonder why other little children don't spend the first years of their life going back and forth to hospitals, seeing doctors, losing their hair.....feeling sick.
Sylvie is forever in our thoughts, prayers and memories, as are her parents.
I'm honored to be running a marathon in Sylvie's memory and in support of a worthy charity that helps other children and families recieve the support necessary to fight the good fight against cancer. Please join me in trying to change one little section of the world in favor of kids until the day that all children outlive their parents.
The Tomorrows Children’s Fund was founded by a group of committed parents to help their children and other like them with cancer and serious blood disorders. With the help of friends like you, today, TCF provides a warm, healthy and loving environment for children in treatment; a full scope of services to relieve families’ emotional and financial stress; the very best possible medical care; and funding for research on these diseases. All of which confirms our belief that through hope, hard work and heartfelt generosity, extraordinary things are possible.
