Long Gone

I am blogging from the road this weekend. We headed up to Des Moines, Iowa to participate in the CureSearch Walk to raise money to fight childhood cancer. It is an awesome organization and if you would like to find a walk near you or donate some money click here.

And why I am here in Iowa doing it? My niece is a survivor- she is a gorgeous six year old blonde whirling dervish. When she was five months old she was diagnosed with Nueroblastoma, a rare type of cancer. She went through two rounds of chemotherapy before her first birthday. She has been cancer free for over four years, and the awesome people at Curesearch had a hand in that. So I walk for Evie and all of the other children that have to walk this very hard road every day. Please help if you can- and don’t forget to pray (or do whatever it is that spiritually moves you) for kids everywhere whose childhood includes a fight against disease.

  1. I love the way you describe your niece. She sounds so great.

    You’re doing a wonderful thing. My thoughts go out to parents and kids who are dealing with difficult times.

    Take care.

  2. Excellent. So glad your niece is doing so well…

  3. Good for you! Good for you!

    I know a mom whose daughter had neuroblastoma and now she is a three-year-old wonder.
