Our week was magical and I received the biggest gift EVER; watching my daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter Aisley and grandson, Emerson forget the trauma of the previous year fighting the beast that is cancer. We were embraced in the loving arms of volunteers and our every need was met! Aisley danced with characters, gobbled waffles and ice cream, rode ponies and rides and we sighed. After seeing her little body fight so hard while inundated with chemotherapy, she was once again innocent and free. How can this gift ever be repaid?
Here is my plan for giving back. In addition to volunteering for the past four years (and loving every minute of it) I am going to OVER THE EDGE!!
On February 8, I’ll be rappelling 428 feet down the side of the Hyatt Regency Hotel to help make dreams come true for critically ill kids and their families. I need your help in order to make it happen! My fundraising goal is $2,000. Once I reach this goal I can officially go Over The Edge.
Kids who visit Give Kids The World Village face many challenges greater than this. Their lives are filled with hospital stays and medical procedures. They miss out on school activities, sports, and time with friends. Give Kids The World helps them reclaim that time during week-long, cost-free wish vacations.
