For those of you who do not know, my family lost my sweet brother Shawn to a very rare and aggressive form of AML Leukemia at the young age of 19. Unfortunately, not much is known about this particular form of this horrendous disease and why it is so aggressive and quick. The money we raise will not only help the families of the children suffering from cancer now, but it will help to fund research to find a cure so that no other families have to endure the suffocating heartbreak that we are going through.
Shawn had one of the kindest hearts of anyone that I ever met. He always had a smile on his face and wanted everyone around him to be happy. Music was his life and boy was he talented. The trombone was his specialty, but he could play any instrument that he picked up and he could play it well. It just isn't fair that the world lost such a bright soul way too soon. Please help me fight this disease for Shawn and the many others who have lost their fight.
Last year, I was able to raise over $3,000 for St. Jude. I am looking to smash that goal this year! Every dollar counts.
