The whole family is heavily impacted when a child is diagnosed. I wanted to share a message from a parent so you can understand a little bit of what they are going through and why our mission is so important:
“My now 4-year-old warrior was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer shortly after her first birthday in 2016. Since then we have been down 5 dead-end roads, 6 surgeries, countless MRIs, scans, port flushes, hour rides to the hospital weekly. I was forced to step back from my career last year to take on my most important job yet, My daughter’s advocate. I’m emotionally and physically exhausted. I spend every waking moment for my family. Making appointments, doing research, mending belly aches, sorting meds, whatever I need to do to keep our heads above water. In the process, I’m losing myself, and I’m not ashamed to say I NEED A BREAK. Music was and will always be a huge part of my life and has kept my head as clear as can be expected. I’m not picky, I’ll see anyone, anywhere, anytime….”
We sent this Mom and Dad to see Queen at Madison Square Garden last week. It seems as if it is exactly what they needed. Remember it is you, the supporters, that allow us to make this kind of impact. Thank you!
