Giving Thanks for Life and Health

During the holidays, we tend to be more aware of the things we are thankful for.  For most of us, health has always been one of those things.  I found that when I became a parent, health seemed more important than ever.  You do all you can to protect your child(ren) from illness.  But there are some illnesses that that go beyond the cold and flu -- those that can completely change your life.  Like cancer.

On Saturday, November 19, supporters from 80 communities walked to fight childhood cancer.  The St. Jude Children's Research Hospital held it's "Give Thanks.  Walk.," a 5K that raises funds for the world's premier pediatric cancer research center.  St. Jude's mission is to cure and prevent pediatric diseases through research and treatment, and no child is denied based on race, religion, or the family's ability to pay.

There simply aren't enough words to describe my support for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. We all have special places in our hearts for children who are ill, and we all feel somewhat helpless.  But the truth is, we can help.  We can help organizations like St. Jude whose every day commitment is to treat, prevent, and find a cure.  Go here to learn more.

Life and health are beautiful, but some aren't so lucky.  Support the mission of St. Jude and help more children have more birthdays.

Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.
