We are raising money for five families with children fighting childhood cancer!

It started with "Prayers for Kayne" who lives in LaGrange, NC. His FB page made it to my news feed thru my friendship with Pretz Karr! I decided to get some bracelets and help this young boy in their quest to raise money for his cancer care....shortly, thereafter, I met Maddie who needed to get to Boston for her cancer care....https://www.facebook.com/groups/ChildHoodBrainCancer (Wind Dancer) were raffling new laptop. Each ticket was $25. My heart went out to this family and I decided to get a raffle ticket....I NEVER WIN ANYTHING so I was not helping because I thought I would win, I was doing it because my heart moved me too.....Wellllllllll, I won the laptop...didn't even know it for a couple of days but low and behold it was true....

I guess because I liked these children's pages more children started to show up on my news feed and I started following, sharing and sending prayers but I want to do more....

Call me ignorant but I never realized just how many children are afflicted with cancer....46/7 means EVERY DAY 46 children, from infant to teenage years, get some form of cancer of those 7 will lose their battle...

I want you to understand something....when we prepare for the birth of a child, grandchild, niece, cousin, etc., we don't set money aside for cancer because it does not even cross our minds that it can happen to us.. But guess what, NO ONE IS EXEMPT and that is REALITY!

I have been blessed with healthy children which made me want to help even more....I struggle as a single parent on day to day survival...I don't know what I would do if I had half of the financial struggles of these families.

I'm a Zumba instructor and we have Zumbathons all the time for many causes so I decided that I would share my idea and see what kind of feedback I would get. Everyone I spoke with loved the idea of giving the money to the families instead of a foundation. Now, I want you to know that foundations are AWESOME and do so much for these families but I wanted to help families directly so I submitted a request to ZUMBA.COM for permission to do this Zumbathon and was approved.

FAST FORWARD TO TODAY.....Now, I need YOU! I need you to open up your hearts and donate to help us make this event not only a success but a memorable one!

I want to thank you for taking a couple of minutes to read this and I look forward to seeing your name on a donation or ticket for this event!

In the meantime, have a wonderful day ALL and remember to love and cherish those in your lives because tomorrow is not promised!
