For those of you who do not know who NChiniewicz is, here is a little about him. He is 8 years old (the reason why we are only using his first initial), and has a heart of gold. We were cuddling on the couch looking at my facebook page when we saw the post about donating birthdays. He asked what it was for, why they were doing it, and how could he help. When I explained what St. Jude does, he said "I'm in" so this page and donation of his birthday was born. We set the goal low because he's 8, and it is mostly family and close friends of mommy and daddy that will donate, but we would love to see him meet and exceed this goal. Can you help make HIS wish come true by helping others?
This year, I'm doing something different for my birthday. I'm dedicating it to the kids of St. Jude.
Help me out by not buying me a gift this year. Buy them a gift instead — the gift of another birthday.
Why St. Jude?
Since opening in 1962, treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
That's right: the best care in the world, for free, because of people like us. Now that's something worth celebrating.
Let's get this party started.
