Talia on the Ellen Show and The Truth 365 Tonight

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

“The world is my country, all mankind are my bethren, and to do good is my religion.”

Thomas Paine 

Oh my gosh!

Did you see Talia on The Ellen Show today? The show has not come on here where I live, but this is what I have seen!

I am so happy for Talia! Ellen, I thank you! You not only thrilled Talia, who has gone through way too much for any human… but you also thrilled each of us who care about children with cancer. What you did for Talia today, you also did for us. Her joy is my joy!

And Cover Girl, you ROCK, you just plain ROCK!

Do you know what tonight is my friends?

Just checking… to see if you have been reading along… or sleeping… because I would like to have your full attention.

Tonight, at 6:00 EST, The Truth 365 campaign begins. This is the link where you can watch!

This is a tremendous opportunity to learn, to grow, to share, and to make this world a safer place for our children. The number one cause of death by disease for children in our country is cancer. I am not messing around here. It’s time we go for the jugular. We do this by funding pediatric cancer research. 

What Ellen did for Talia could not be more wonderful.

It breaks my heart that Ellen could not give Talia what she really wants and what she really needs— a body free of cancer. Talia, if only we could!

Please do not sit on the sidelines, and hope that others will play the game.

It is not really a game at all; it is a matter of fighting with all we have against suffering and death of the most beautiful and precious humans on this Earth.

Please Sir, May I Have Some More?

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

“It gives me great pleasure to announce the formation of The Children’s Oncology Group Foundation. The COG Foundation will be able to directly receive philanthropic funds from both individual supporters and organizations.  One key advantage of the Foundation is that it enables COG’s leadership, comprised of a multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, laboratory scientists and other allied professionals, to direct funds raised for childhood cancer research to the areas of highest need and opportunity. In an era of rapid scientific discovery, this direct link will allow COG to rapidly respond and support research and new discoveries that have the greatest potential to benefit children with cancer.”

                               ~Peter C. Adamson, M.D.

This is great news. I will never forget my doctor, Dr. Dan, explaining to me how the collaboration between medical professionals in The Children’s Oncology Group and their sharing of information from studies has led to saved lives.  I feel the need to repeat Dr. Adamson’s words, “in an era of rapid scientific discovery”!!!

Speaking of “rapid scientific discovery,” did you notice this article from the New York Times about using gene therapy to “train a person’s own immune system to kill cancer cells”? It may be possible that this is the beginning of a whole new way of fighting cancer:

“In essence, the team is using gene therapy to accomplish something that researchers have hoped to do for decades: train a person’s own immune system to kill cancer cells.”

 With all of this encouraging news, I realize that the enormous strides we need to take will require funding for research. It will be next to impossible to achieve adequate funding without raising lots and lots of awareness about childhood cancer. This is why I am thrilled about what has happened with Ellen and The Blanket Fairy! The Blanket Fairy has not given up “Making Some Noise” on The Ellen Show Facebook Page. She has one more message for all of us to share with Ellen:

Please save this photo and then go to Ellen’s page and post the following:

Ellen PLEASE view this video “Letters To Ellen”. These letters were written to you by kids all over the United States on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of children all around the world.

Please go to this page and post and share this on your walls and blogs. We need to make more noise to get our mission accomplished! STOP CHILDHOOD cANCER!

At first I thought, gosh, Ellen already did such a kind thing, maybe we should just be grateful and not ask for more.  Suddenly, the image of Oliver Swift dashed through my brain.  He asked timidly, even though he had already been served, “Please sir, may I have some more?”

I hope that Ellen knows we are asking for more because we are grateful. We are asking for more not to fill our own overstuffed bellies, but for the ravaged little ones who cannot ask for help themselves.

For them, we politely ask, “Please Ellen, may the children have some more?”

Note to Ms. Ellen DeGeneres…

You know, Ellen, The 46 Mommas are going to “Shave for the Brave” in Washington D. C. next week, on September 21 at Union Station.  Seriously. 46 moms will shave their heads to raise money for St. Baldrick’s and pediatric cancer research. I would love for you to consider joining them— not to shave your head, but to see first-hand the desperate need to raise funds to stop childhood cancer.  (If you feel you absolutely need to join them in ridding your cabeza of hair for this great cause, please, for the kids, do! If you will, I will too!!!!!!!!!!!!)  

I would love for you to see how this tremendous group of women is raising money toward a cure.

Washington D. C. September 21st.

46 Mommas Shave for The Brave.

I imagine you have someone who can make the reservation for you. Please have them do it!

Just in case Washington D. C. has a bit of a fall chill in the air, don’t forget to bring the gift from The Blanket Fairy, you will be warm as toast!

 Love you, Blanket Fairy… love you Mommas… Love you Ellen… Love you warriors…
