Childhood Cancer Awarness Month

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

  1. Great suggestion about giving. So I did – $50 in honor of Elizabeth! I pray for a cure for her and all others with cancer. You are an amazing woman – teaching, raising the kids, all the cooking and fun with them, and taking care of Elizabeth. That is some job!
