CureSearch walk for Children's Cancer

This year we are proud to report that CureSearch Salt Lake City has already raised $100,000 for Childhood cancer!  This is sooo exciting!  My goal this year was $500.  I have a ways to go to reach my goal.  I would like to get there by the walk which is Saturday, September 29, 2012.  When I started this journey with Ellie I knew I had to help find a better way for these kids.  That's why I support CureSearch.  They give almost every cent to childhood cancer research.  That's almost unheard of.  I hope that one day there is a cure.  And for Ellie and others like her I am willing to fight for this cause.  I know a lot of you have asked how they can help.  I have linked it to my blog so you can go directly to her fundraising page.  Our team name is Ellie's Angels.  I am doing a Bake Sale on Thursday if you are interested in coming out to that or donating a dessert or cookies.  It will be on the corner of Clark Lane and 1525 W. in Farmington.  Ellie is doing well and has been stable for two years now.  We feel very fortunate but are always on edge that it could come back.  It is more than overwhelming when you are told your child has cancer. I love all of our friends and neighbors in all the love we have been shown and these past few especially. Thanks for all you guys do for us.  This is also a very special day and we would love to see as many friends and family as we can there.  We are celebrating five years since we held our daughter Eve.  It's her birthday and what better way to celebrate than doing something for a great cause.  Will you be our voice?  In the last 40 years, the overall survival rate for children's cancer has increased from 10% to 78%. At CureSearch, our goal is 100%.

Be Part of the Cure

To reach our goal of 100% cure rate for children with cancer, CureSearch is mobilizing individuals, families and corporations across the nation to join our efforts. CureSearch has Regional Offices throughout the country that organize events and activities to raise funds for research on behalf of children living with cancer. http://www.curesearchwalk.org/saltlakecity/elliesangels
