On another note…..

Cindy recently emailed me about her 6 year old niece, Sirri, who was diagnosed with cancer almost 2 years ago and is thankfully a survivor today!

She had a potato sized tumor in her tiny little chest squeezed in between her heart and lungs. It is truly a miracle and act of God that she is alive today. But her family also cannot go without recognizing the efforts of the American Cancer Society. Sirri’s family’s experience was made so much lighter because of the efforts of the American Cancer Society. They do so much for those suffering with and the families of those suffering with cancer.

They would not be able to do half of what they do without the help of ordinary people donating and raising funds through various events like the Relay For Life.

Cindy told me:

To celebrate and honor Sirri’s life my family and some very close friends are participating in Relay For Life on the evening of Friday, June 25th to help raise money to save the lives of others.
As part of Relay For Life we are expected to raise money to contribute to the efforts of the American Cancer Society. We have a goal of raising $5,000 as a team.
In an effort to do my part, I have been working long and hard to get an etsy shop, Button of Hope up and running. I have made earrings, necklaces, and hair pins and am currently selling them. 100% of my proceeds will go directly to the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life.

All of us on the team have come up with our own ways to fund raise and have a goal to raise $5,000. And we are actually more than half way there!!!

Our family feels so blessed to have Sirri with us today. For me personally, she is one of the lights and joys of my life. She is my “little squish” and someone I can’t imagine life without. She is a healthy and thriving 6 year old who is constantly making us laugh, loves her first grade class, playing with her friends, performing for her family, and painting her fingernail.”

Here is a small sample of what Cindy is selling in her shop, Button of Hope . . .

With your help, more families will be able to enjoy the outcome we now, so gratefully, enjoy.
