Thank you so much for keeping us informed. As I am not a constituent of Rep. Chris Van Hollen, I could not email his office. So I called and left a
message to thank him for being a member of and attending the Caucus
I did contact my Representative, Congressman Elijah Cummings, and
asked him to join the Caucus. I included data about pediatric cancer
and a little bit about my beautiful granddaughter, Rowan Grace,…

Our local NBC affiliate, 11Alive, highlighted Sean this morning, commemorating September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Jill Becker, the broadcaster on the right, is the mom of a childhood cancer survivor and does all she can for our kids.
Sean answered the reporter's questions for a good 15 minutes with a maturity I could never have imagined. What an amazing kid! John and I stood to the side in awe.
Her is Sean's interview:… Continue

There are many new members so I wanted to post a reminder that this coming Monday, September 27th, all Chili's restaurants in the country will be donating 100% of their profits for the entire day to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. It's an easy way to help support and raise awareness for childhood cancers and other catastrophic childhood diseases. So, if you have no plans that day or just want to grab something to go, try Chili's and color a pepper for a special child.

What if the Susan B. Komen Foundation to eradicate breast cancer added a "little sister?" -- Curing Childhood Cancer. So many mommies have breast cancer. What better image of nurturing and love than a mother's breast? (Daddies hug their babies to their chests, too.)

The kids are back to school, the leaves are falling, and many of us are starting to feel nostalgic as the seasons change. I know every year around this time I think back to my own childhood, what it felt like going to school that first day or the excitement of meeting new friends. For some of us, our childhood memories include cartoon characters, and one of those has joined the battle against childhood cancer this… Continue

Hi All, Tomorrow I am hosting a Childhood Cancer Awareness table at our local farmers market. I thought it would be a great idea to have Melina's White Light walking around with the childhood cancer petition collecting signatures. But I am not sure if there is a form to copy and print or if I could make one up my self. Any advice woudl be appreicated.

Hello, A few of people are working on getting an 8 foot by 22 foot storage trailor turned into a moving billboard and I am looking for some ideas on what should be on the sign as far as Curesearch? 46mommas?

We have a local artist willing to do the mural on both sides but I will need to give him a good draft of what we want. still waiting on word from curesearch on any copyright issues. Pac2 is welcome… Continue

I have been following all the wonderful materials coming out of the PAC2 these days and have been forwarding the info on to my friends and family.
I would like to suggest that we write our local newspapers to help promote Childhood Cancer Awareness month.
Today in the Cleveland Plain Dealer was a wonderfully written spread on Breast Cancer and Susan Koman Foundation. And I thought to myself, hey, its September,,,let's hear about Childhood Cancer! So I… Continue

As many of you know, September represents National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. As we commemorate the month, we will remember all the children who have lost their lives to the disease, think about all the children who will face life-long side effects from their treatments, rally behind all the children who are still actively fighting the disease, and continue our work to ensure that future generations will never have to battle childhood… Continue

I woke up this morning and one of my fellow cancer mommy friends sent me this Hyundai "Hope on Wheels Commercial".
