Fair Warning-Smiles Ahead!
I'll be blogging every day for the next week in a shameless attempt to ask you for a small amount of spare change.
Yes, I'm sharing the photo of Von at his worst (and I think his best because of his smile) to get you thinking that direction.
Von and our family want to give back to the people that have helped us be normal and get through our first year of battling childhood Leukemia. One year down, two and a half to go!
HopeKids is a small organization that focuses on doing small, ongoing, and thoroughly helpful things for families like ours.
If you've ever read our blog and thought, 'they need to quit having so much fun and get busy battling cancer', then blame HopeKids. They are the ones who provide all these opportunities for us to be normal instead of 'the family with the bald kid.'
I'll post more about HopeKids and what they do in the coming days.
For now, think about giving $5 to Von to give to HopeKids at the next HopeKids event. We set up a donation site to make it easy here.
Don't do anything quite yet. Tomorrow, you may have an incentive to do better than $5 and one can't live with regrets especially with a smile like this!
