THE STORY:

As many of you know I've become passionate about supporting childhood cancer research in the last two years and that reason is Ty Louis Campbell.  I only met this little boy once, but his impact on my life is ever lasting.  When I started following Ty's story on his mother Cindy's blog, www.superty.org - all I knew is that he was the little cousin of friend's of mine and he was battling cancer.  I really had no idea what that meant - silly me thought Leukemia was the only "kid" cancer there was and I thought kids today survive that, right??  I had no idea how wrong I was until I started reading Cindy's blog.  There I learned that Ty battled a brain tumor, basically beat that cancer but then suffered debilitating effects from the very treatment that was supposed to save his life.  The blog was where Cindy, most eloquently,  shared her fears and hopes for Ty, shared the brutal reality of their life during his treatments.

As a relatively new mother to a beautiful little boy myself, her words touched my to my soul.  I'd like to believe since I "met" little Ty I've become a better mother, wife and friend.  Every night Christopher and I say a prayer to Ty and I promise to do all I can to help make it so other children don't suffer the way he did.  

I'm running to raise money so that the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation can help fund ground breaking research of Pediatric Cancers.  I thank you for any amount you can donate towards this cause.  I know there are many worthwhile charities out there vying for your dollars - so to have you support a cause that is dear to me, means more then you can ever know.

Thank you - Donna
