From Shayla: As you may know, I have a birthday coming up next week. If you were planning to get me a gift, may I please share a suggestion? Please consider making a donation to Kids Cancer Crusade instead of buying me a present. I have been incredibly blessed and do not need or want anything; however, there are children fighting for their lives who could use a special treat.
Kids Cancer Crusade is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization started in honor of my sister, Christi, a childhood cancer victim. KCC is a 100% volunteer organization and they work to support families of children with cancer. With any money I may receive for KCC, they will assign me a child (hopefully more) to buy items for and then I will mail the gift box(s) to the child(ren). I remember Christi receiving gifts and surprises throughout her four-year battle and I know it always made her day. I want other children and their families to receive the same joy and help.
If you want to help, you can either get your money to me (and I will get it to KCC) or you can send it directly to them at: PO Box 1045, Fremont, OH 43420. Please put a little note inside with my name on it.
Thanks for your consideration! For more information visit kidscancercrusade.org or the gift program page at:http://kidscancercrusade.wordpress.com/care-packages/or on facebook at:https://www.facebook.com/KidsCancerCrusade

Thanks for your consideration! Shayla
