Sheila and I will walk in the Music City Half-Marathon in Nashville one week from today. We will be walking with many family and friends all wearing purple t-shirts. Here's the back of one:
And here is the reason:
This beautiful little girl, my great niece Lily, is in a fight with childhood cancer. She was seven when she was diagnosed last December first with leukemia. Now eight, she is waging a fierce battle. I have enlisted in her army, but we need help. Research to find treatments and cures for childhood cancer is hampered by insufficient funding. That's hard to believe but true.
If you would like to help you can go to this safe site to make an electronic contribution. Any amount will help. It is easy, painless, and ALL the proceeds go to fight childhood cancer.
The learn more about Lily and her cause go to www.lilysgarden.org.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
