My BullHorn Itinerary

Grace: A Child's Intimate Journey Through Cancer and Recovery

On this National Cancer Survivor’s Day, I find myself thinking more about those who didn’t survive.  I find myself stuffed with thankfulness for life and for love.  Please join me in spilling over a bit today…

I am very, very excited about a fast approaching “Mission.” 

I call it Children’s Hospital Hope Tour.

My mission (if you know me, please pardon the redundancy,) is to visit “the kids” fighting cancer. I want to know their names; I want to know their faces and I want to hear their hearts.  I want to hug them and share in their hope.  The mission is to love them.  The mission is to make sure that the children who lost their battle will not ever be forgotten.

Awareness. Yes, that is the next big piece of the Mission Pie. We need to keep telling everyone who will listen how childhood cancer research is seriously underfunded.  If people truly knew the facts about the lack of funding, there would be change.  If I have to get out my bullhorn and hang out of the car as we sit in traffic traveling through cities, well…. 

Here is a better idea– I will give you my itinerary.

Jeff Foxworthy is a Hero for Kids!

Did you know that Jeff Foxworthy has been a fundraising chariman for Duke Children’s Hospital for fifteen years, and he has worked with Camp Sunshine in Atlanta for over a decade. I have to say that this touches my heart so deeply… that he would commit to help sick children for many years.  He is genuinely concerned for cancer kids, and he shows it by giving his time, and by giving from his heart. 

Can I share with you the latest gift he has shared with a “cancer kid?”

Jeff Foxworthy wrote me a kind, encouraging, supportive, and inspiring email, and guess what?!

 Mr. Jeff Foxworthy wrote a beautiful book endorsement for Grace: A Child’s Intimate Journey through Cancer and Recovery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can tell by his words that he really does spend time with kids who are battling cancer.  In this world that is becoming more and more devoid of people we can look up to for an example of how to live our lives, Jeff Foxworthy has given me something to reach for.  Integrity is a wonderful thing to share.  Please excuse me while I go cry happy tears.
