We learned today that another child that we knew at Floating, earned her Angel Wings 2 weeks ago. I don’t know exactly how old she was, but I am pretty sure she was under 3. Including Alexander, this makes SEVEN children that we knew in the last 2.5 years since STUPID CANCER entered our lives. Seven young lives – taken way to soon. Seven families with broken hearts. Lives, that will be changed forever.
It is just so sad to keep hearing about children dying. It just isn’t fair!!
On Friday, September 28th, my friend Tony (Dad to Angel Cole) has declared it “A Day of Yellow and Gold”. Gold is the Ribbon color for Childhood Cancer – but knowing that most people don’t have any “Gold” colored clothing, he is asking that everyone wear YELLOW (or Gold if you have it) on that day to try to get awareness out there for the children!
I made shirts for us. The shirts we only $3 at AC Moore, and I had some transfer paper for the other part.
Tony has also created an Online Petition to Create a National Day of Yellow and Gold! Please consider signing it. Perhaps one day, the Children and the GOLD will get as much attention as the Breasts and the pink!
