My beautiful niece Gracie was recently diagnosed with Neuroblastoma (cancer). It is still early in the diagnosis and we are awaiting results to know more about the fight that Gracie will face. I've created this blog as an outlet for friends and family to stay informed about her journey and a way for friends and family to make anonymous contributions towards her care and the mounting expenses her family will face. Gracie is a fighter and the bravest 3 year old I know. Hundreds of people love you Gracie and are praying for you. "Be strong and of good courage for the Lord thy God is with thee" Joshua 1:9

lunch for a cure

how much do you spend on lunch? 2 bucks? 5 bucks? 10 bucks? whatever the amount may be, could you donate one days lunch money to ?? together all our lunches can add up quickly and help save lives!!!


The Neuroblastoma Foundation (NBF) was founded by families of children with neuroblastoma dedicated to eradicating the disease.

The NBF consists of volunteers, business people, medical professionals, researchers, and parents of children with neuroblastoma, all dedicated to ensuring that one day no other child or family enters the world of neuroblastoma. Through their collective experience they provide educational, emotional, and advocacy support to families as well as work to solicit funding for research to find a cure for neuroblastoma.

Continued progress on increasing the survival rate of neuroblastoma, reducing the serious side effects of cancer treatment, improving the quality of life during treatment, understanding the importance of genetics and its influences with environmental exposures, are all part of the continuing efforts of many of the dedicated people that make up the Neuroblastoma Foundation.

100% of the money raised through Lunch for a Cure goes towards funding for research for neuroblastoma
