What some of you may not know about me is that I lost my five month old daughter to an unsuccessful heart transplant. I don't think any parent should ever have to out live their child.
Please do what you can to support this cause - tweet about it, blog about it, put it in an AN, and donate if you can.
Dear friends, fans and followers,
Did you know that every year over 200,000 children worldwide are diagnosed with a form of childhood cancer? We cannot ignore this shocking statistic impacting the youth of the world, and we certainly hope that you won’t either. We need your help.
Starting Nov. 15 through Nov. 20th, the fandom will have the opportunity to help in the fight against childhood cancer. We haven't set a monetary goal, because we're firm in the belief that no matter what we set, you as a fandom will surpass it.
Running this virtual stand, is the biggest challenge we have ever faced – the challenge of raising awareness of just how serious the epidemic of childhood cancer is.
The money raised will go to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer, a 501(c)3 public charity, to fund childhood cancer research projects. The mission of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is to raise funds and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily to support research into new cures and treatments; to encourage and educate others, especially children, to raise money for childhood cancer by holding their own lemonade stands; and to expedite the process of finding new cures and bringing them to children with cancer now.
Please help support our efforts and this critically important cause by making a contribution by visiting our virtual stand. You can make your donation online by visiting our Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Fundraising page, http://www.alexslemonade.org/stands/19842.
You can also help us by passing this message along to others who may be interested in visiting our virtual stand, or holding one of their own!
Thank you for your support.
