Wordless Wednesday – Rest In Peace Little Angels

Then the child opened its eyes, and looked up into the angel's beautiful face, which beamed with happiness, and at the same moment they were in heaven, where joy and bliss reigned. The child received wings like the other angel, and they flew about together, hand in hand. ~Hans Christian Anderson

Heaven Has A New Group of Angels

Even though we are only in March, many of our brave little fighters have already earned their angel wings this year and are now shining brightly down on us from heaven.

We believe it’s so important to keep their memories alive and to remember each of their families in our prayers.  Please take the time to view the websites of each of these precious and inspirational children and leave a note for their families as they go through this difficult time.  We will never forget these heroes.

Let’s continue working together to fight childhood cancer in honor of these children and the millions of others still battling!

This Week’s Feature: Kids Over Kancer!

This week’s featured charity is Kids Over Kancer (K.O.K)!  K.O.K. was founded in October of this year by 20-year-old Gabriela Lopez of Miami, Florida.  She was inspired to start this new charity in honor of little Mackenzie Gonzalez, a brave cancer warrior who earned her angel wings one year ago.

A direct goal of Kids Over Kancer is to raise awareness for those fighting childhood cancer.  In addition to advocating on behalf of the cancer patients, K.O.K. also works to bring smiles and hope to the children and their families.

As K.O.K. is a new charity, currently in the process of obtaining its 501(c)(3) status, they need your help!  Please take the time to visit their Facebook and Squidoo pages and learn more about the individual children they are promoting and what you can do to help.  You can also follow this organization on Twitter!

The more information the world has, the closer we come to funding and finding a cure for childhood cancer!  Less than 2% of all cancer funding goes to this area and that is unacceptable!  Help Kids Over Kancer spread the word today!

**If you know a child or charity that would like to be featured, please let us know at mikeyandzoe@comcast.net or on our Facebook page**

This Week’s Feature: Butterflies for Brandi

Butterflies for Brandi

We have mentioned Butterflies for Brandi in the past as a group that helps sick children, but this week we wanted to give a little more detail about the wonderful work they are doing in the Memphis area, especially for the families of the sick children being treated at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The Butterflies for Brandi charity was founded by the family of little Brandi who lost her fight with cancer in 2002.   They were so inspired and grateful for the people who surrounded them with support during that time that they wanted to honor sweet Brandi’s memory by doing the same for others that are going through similar situations.

What started as a way to deliver toys and gifts to the children fighting cancer at St. Jude quickly became a ministry for the families of those sick children.  Many of the families are staying nearby in either the Ronald McDonald House or Target House and have very little resources available to them.  Leading the ministry is Rena Mangum.  With each visit to St. Jude or one of the housing locations, she meets new families in need and she does everything she can to get donations of even the simplest household items to them while they endure the pain of having a critically ill child.

Please take the time to visit the Butterflies for Brandi Facebook page to see how you can help!  You can send donations of toiletries, toys, clothing, non-perishable food, etc., to Rena Mangum at 1764 Sixth Crompton Sq A, Memphis, TN 38134.  Everything will be personally delivered to the families in need.  You can also purchase a Butterflies for Brandi bracelet as part of their fundraising efforts (wristbands are $5.00 and custom-made paracord bracelets are $10.00).

Help us keep spreading the word about Butterflies for Brandi and all of our feature kids and charities!

Remembering Little Angels

As you know, this month is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.  Recently, several of our brave little fighters have earned their angel wings and are now inspiring us from heaven.

We believe it’s so important to keep their memories alive and to remember their families in our prayers.  Please take the time to view the websites of each of these precious children and leave a note for their families as they go through this difficult time.  We will never forget these little angels.
