Children are our Future, Their Voices Count, Let them Lead the way!

I want every child to have a chance to live.”

I had the pleasure of meeting with 6th graders at two elementary schools that belong to a club to help children with cancer. They are a true inspiration, so giving and are eager at a young age to give back. They understand the need for philanthropy. As the mother of a child lost to cancer they gave me great hope, inspiration, joy and deep motivation to continue my efforts to save the lives of children with cancer.

I greatly thank all of you and your group leaders. Parents you should be so proud of the values you have instilled in your children.

I asked them to tell me what it meant to them to help children with cancer. This is what they said:

“I want to help kids with cancer because I care.

I think kids with cancer have the right to live just like me.

I love the feeling of helping someone.

I want kids with cancer to have the same life I do.

I want to make a difference.

I want to help kids who are not as fortunate as me.

I think everyone should have the chance to live a normal life and be able to do everything that other children do.

I feel with our effort and teamwork we can save lives.

If I had cancer I would want help.

I am so fortunate to have what I have. I want to give back.

I like helping people.

I am fortunate enough to be healthy and I want kids with cancer to know that we care.”
