St. Baldrick's Heros

They did it to raise money for a cure. 
 Andrew's Cub Scout buddy's joined him at the St. Baldricks Day event.   What great friends!


They did it to stand toe-to-toe with those still fighting for their lives
Andrew loves Zoe.  He knows there is no cure for her cancer....another  reason to support St. Baldricks.


They did it as a reminder that too many kids get cancer
And because they love each other more than you can imagine.


She did it because....
She  wanted to let her brother know that she too wanted to make a difference....


......and with no regrets!   

Grandma J suggested that this beautiful sister is mature enough to get her ears pierced.....and shouldn't have to wait until she's a teenager.  Her parents agreed!!!


They did it again, and again, and will never forget
Angel legend and Baseball Hall of Famer, Rod Carew lost his daughter Michelle to Leukemia 15 years ago.   He continues to raise funds and awareness, claiming to have gained many more children in the process.  I'm sure his daughter is proud of him.


They did it for love
The saying, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree",  couldn't be any truer!   Dad has always been a supporter and advocate for finding a cure through fundraising.

This is great! Never heard of St.Baldrick's Day before, but next year I'll keep an eye out for it in Phoenix. Those kids are heros aren't they?! Did Beauty get her ears pierced? I am so happy you are back blogging!

OK I need a tissue now. You have a beautiful family GJ. And there's a whole lotta love there! You are blessed.

Yes, please hand me some tissues. What a beautiful post! I do feel sad for children with cancer, or anyone with cancer. My father passed away at the beginning of this month from it. I sympathize with all the families going through this with a loved one. My heart goes out to all of them.

When it comes to any hardship, we must always remain strong, not just for ourselves, but especially for those suffering.

Oh, brings tears to my eyes. Those kids (and adults) are just beautiful souls. I love that Zoe...adding her to my daily prayers.
Thanks for sharing, and I agree...Beauty should be able to pierce her ears after this mature step!!!

Thank-you for this bit of love. What a wonderful event! Now I, too, will be praying for a miracle for Zoe.

That was really a lovely post and it is horrible that we still have not found a cure. I lost a cousin a couple of months ago.
I could feel the love from your post and photos.

What a blessing. Praying your grandson gets his CURE!
looking at his sweet friend who has none makes me just want to lose it. Working peds oncology did me in.
You'll never meet braver souls ever in your life.

I am so thankful that your grandchildren are such supporters and fighters of great causes. They are beautiful. Thank you to them for shedding light and bringing hope to so many. They are beautiful souls.
Sort of like their Grandma.
With love, Becky
