Happy October, Friends –
I am absolutely blown away by the level of support that was displayed during September in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and Sickle Cell Awareness Month. I feel as though every other day, I was receiving messages and pictures from individuals who spotted support throughout the community or who were creating the awareness on their own. The buildings that went gold, the lawn signs that were purchased, the fundraisers that were held, the gold or red attire people sported…it’s unbelievable! I truly feel as though we made a difference in September. Together, we helped to shine a light and increase awareness. I have people contacting us already about next year and what they can do. We are making a difference. We are being heard. Let’s keep this streak going!!!
We just hosted our annual Recipe for a CURE Sunday Brunch and I am again humbled by the support from the community. Businesses have been incredibly generous with their donations and monetary support, individuals are purchasing tickets and our families have contributed baskets for the auction. It truly brings the statement “There’s no place like home” to life. We are so incredibly fortunate to be living in this beautiful, philanthropic, caring City.
With the changing of the seasons comes change in life. I would like to wish Chelsea the best of luck with her new endeavor – teaching children. She’s enriched the office and brought new energy to the team. Her attention to detail, creativity with activities that our children could do during events and organization of basically everything will be missed. We look forward to seeing you volunteer at future CURE events and hearing all about your new role shaping the lives of little ones in the community.
We at CURE Childhood Cancer Association would like to express our most sincere gratitude for the unwavering support of the community. We are forty years strong and looking forward to many more…until no parent has to hear those words “Your child has cancer” or “Your child has a blood disorder”.
In closing, I’d just like to say thank you. Thank you. Thank you. And thank you again.
There’s no place like home.
Have a happy fall ya’ll!
