Rheagen finished chemo in November of 2009. They oncology clinic celebrated with an end of chemo party and we started planning to spend his 5th birthday in disney world! Rheagen started complaining of symptoms again in december but his doctor maintained the previous diagnosis, "side effects of vincristine" Rheagen's port was scheduled to be removed on January 26th 2010 and that was when we really started to feel like we could celebrate. The day the port was removed the hospital staff printed… Continue

As we head into the final weeks of the year - a time when kids are home from school, and family comes to visit; when some of us will take vacations and all of us will welcome a New Year – we would like to pause for a moment to remember some of the children who have lost their lives to cancer in 2009.
These children remind us of what is important in life, and their lives have forever changed us – they are why we are here, and they are the reason we continue to fight to find better… Continue

Fly high and fly free, big brother
Your pain is finally gone
You were unique, like no other
We'll never walk alone!
Yesterday, today, tomorrow and forever 45!
Written @ 11:25 a.m.
In honor and memory of my big bro Chuck who earned his wings at 7 P.M. Pacific time last night (12-17-09) after a 10 1/2 month battle with stomach cancer. He was only 3 1/2 years old when I began my battle with cancer in '68 and now he's gone!! Love you forever and ever, bro!!

Almost every woman can remember opening a gift box containing a heart necklaces
at some time in life, usually when she was a little girl; she remembers how her breath caught at how beautiful the gold or silver was, how she touched the gemstone that signified her month of birth with awe and appreciation, and how she wore the special gift every day until it was lost or the chain snapped in half.
A superior quality heart… Continue

Another fun way to remember our inspiration (on his birthday) and all of the reasons we continue to wage the war on cancer!
Sean's friend Matt invites you to come be a kid with us for a day- eat pizza, laugh, and bowl! Sean would have wanted a party. We all know that...

Just had to get this out. The reason I'm so pissed is because I wrote Governor Crist a letter back in March of this year requesting him to make September Childhood Cancer Awareness Month here in Florida, including the stories of two local families to which he never even acknowledged the letter.I recently watched the news here in Florida and they were speaking about Governor Charlie Crist getting involved and calling the Jacksonville Jaguars and getting Tim Tebow placed there… Continue

Childhood cancer killed my 14 year old son AJ on January 5th, 2008.
Instead of reciting the usual statistics and why money and awareness is needed, I want to tell a little story. It’s not really mine or about AJ or other kids. I think it’s about the power of youth, not knowing any better, ill (well) behaved young women and men....
It's from a book by a reporter who’s been in Iraq and Afghanistan covering the war since 9/11. It’s not about strategic decisions, or… Continue

Sixty-eight years ago today, this nation was attacked. It was a surprise attack. Many brave young warriors died. The Greatest Generation responded by mobilizing the nation. A war was fought where many brave young men and women made the ultimate sacrifice. Ultimately, the United States prevailed. Continue
Much like Pearl Harbor, childhood cancer is a surprise to much of this nation. But this surprise does not make front page news; although many brave young children die. They continue to…

With Thanksgiving behind us, we are officially entering the final weeks of 2009. It’s hard to believe that another year is nearly over, and though we are very excited for what 2010 will bring, our efforts to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer never stop.
As you know, the mission of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer is to find a cure for all childhood cancers. However, while we fund research leading us toward these cures, it is also important to… Continue

PLEASE HELP ARMS WIDE OPEN SAVE KYLER’S LIFE
This morning as I rolled over to hit the snooze button on my alarm clock, I noticed the red light flashing on my Blackberry. Groggy and bleary-eyed, I reached over to see what messages awaited my response. There were two. The first was inspirational, about how every action we take, no matter how seemingly small, matters because, good or bad, our thoughts and our actions are like “stones dropped into still waters, causing… Continue
