September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Please think about donating to CURE. This amazing organization is responsible for more than you know. They have touched the lives of so many GA families, including mine. If you want to make a donation, you can either directly donate online at http://www.curechildhoodcancer.org/how-to-help/donate-now/ or you can give me a check and I will make sure it goes to the right place. Thank you. —Amy
