lemonade anyone?

This year I am helping my good friend with her annual fundraiser for childhood cancer. Every year she hosts a lemonade stand through the Alex's Lemonade Stand foundation. This year she is kicking the year off with an online fundraiser and one lucky person will win a $50 gift card for the cheese cake factory (omg its SO good!) that has been donated by her mother.

We are also going to be doing a golf Tournament in the spring/summer then the lemonade stand for the lemonade days.

My godson Antonio was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2004 when he was 2 years old. He went through 18 months of intense treatment that included chemotherapy, radiation, surgeries and a stem cell transplant. He has currently been in remission for 6 years. I thank god every day for his life. He brings such joy to everyone around him. For more info on Antonio you can visit his website here 

  • Childhood cancers are the #1 disease killer of children - more than asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, and pediatric AIDS combined
  • On the average, 1 in every 4 elementary school has a child with cancer. The average high school has two students who are a current or former cancer patient. In the U.S., about 46 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer every weekday
  • Cancer in childhood occurs regularly, randomly, and spares no ethnic group, socioeconomic class, or geographic region

If you would like to donate please visit Antonio's 2011 Fundraisers 
Every Penny Counts

Have a Fantastic Monday!
