Timmy’s 11th Brithday Balloon Release!!


Most of you know the story by now... a little girl... our daughter, Ally, trading her purple balloon for a YELLOW one at a local restaurant... When I put her into her car seat and I noticed it was gone... When I asked her if she had forgotten her balloon in the restaurant, she said, "NO daddy... I let it go... UP to Timmy.... he will love it... because it's YELLOW"!!

This is a moment in my life that i will never, EVER forget.... I could have never even imagined at the time, the impact of this simple act of LOVE from our little girl, that since then, THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of YELLOW balloons have been sent up to heaven by hundreds and THOUSANDS of people each year on Timmy’s birthday…

Each one of these balloons represents just ONE more life that Timmy’s short life on this Earth has touched… and ALLY’s actions that day started a chain reaction… of LOVE, and HOPE… that will touch the lives of THOUSANDS of people, and make such a HUGE impact on this world…

Timmy’s favorite color was always YELLOW… I don’t know what it was about the color of yellow that he was soo drawn to. If he had a gumball, or as he called it a “ball” (because he would never eat it… he just HELD it in his hand… so proudly… and showed EVERYONE and smiled and said, “BALL!!” ANYTHING that you would give him, he would hand it back and say, “ELLOW ONE??”

Years later when we started Timmy’s Fund, we realized that the color for CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS is “YELLOW” or GOLD… and it means soo much more to us. Now… it is such a SPECIAL symbol of HOPE, and LOVE… Seeing all these balloons go up into the sky each year on his birthday just fills us with soo much pride, and peace… knowing just how much PURPOSE that his life holds. Though his life in this world was very short… He has touched THOUSANDS, and his story lives on, and touches more lives every single day!!

PLEASE Join us on this special day… Help us FILL THE SKY with yellow balloons once again on Timmy’s birthday this year!!

Timmy would be 11 years old on this earth this year… we will be celebrating his Birthday on June 29th.

ALL the money raised this year will be going DIRECTLY to families battling childhood cancer, as a GIFT of HOPE… They will read our story and receive this gift, understanding that there were HUNDREDS and possibly THOUSANDS of people who participated… knowing just how many people were in support of their FIGHT… will be a gift that they will remember for the rest of their lives!!

PLEASE join us this year as we celebrate our baby boy’s 11th birthday!!

For each $5 donated, we will release a YELLOW balloon as a gift to Timmy… and more importantly as a symbol of HOPE to the brave kids, and brave families battling childhood cancer this year!! Please help us by Sponsoring at least one balloon, and SHARING this story and our page with EVERYONE you can!!

THANK YOU soo much for joining us!!
Love,
Joe and Tara
