165 Little Heroes

This is a video for Childhood Cancer Awareness made by a mom who lost her 4 year old son to a brain tumor. If you watched Stand Up 2 Cancer last week, Mimi's words about Julian were read by Forrest Whitaker.  I met her last weekend when she was in California to attend the show at the Kodak Theater.  She and her husband stayed with the Spoonies (Bailey's Family!)  Thanks Mimi for all your efforts to bring awareness.  

Kelly is in the video (in the 8th minute.)  It is long, but it shows that there are so many kids affected by cancer.

Hey there :)

Heard you got our seats at the Angel game, how was it? I hope you had a good time. It was nice meeting you and we should all get together again sometime :)

I hope Kelly feels better by now and that you all have had a great weekend!
Thinking of you and sending big hugs to my California friends!

Wow, the video sure makes you realize just how many families are touched by childhood cancer. Love the photo of Kelly in Hawaii!

If we didn't read your blog, we would never have realized that this month of September is dedicated to Childhood Cancer. I sure hope it starts getting more and more recognition so we can find a cure for this horrible childhood disease.

Thinking of you always,
Aunt Jenny, Uncle Bob, Kylie and Ryan
