besina_sartor: Two kitties hugging during naptime (sick bear and doc bear)
As some of you may know, my eldest daughter was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia in fall of 2010, when she was 5.  Sadly, it was undetected (she showed no signs of illness) until it caused a high blood pressure spike which resulted in a stroke just 3 days into her Kindergarten year.  With lots of chemo, physical and occupational therapy, she's doing much better, though she still has a ways to go.

This May, we have a chance to participate in a fundraising walk for CureSearch, and a chance to ensure that all kids affected by cancer can have a chance at a cure.

Emma (and the rest of our family) will be participating in the walk to take place in Portage, MI on May 21st.

We're looking for other people to join our team, assist in fundraising or just to make a donation! While it's fun to have lots of people there to walk with us, if you're too far away, the site allows you to sign up as a virutal walker and make a donation and/or recruit friends to help out too!

Emma's page is at:

and you can join from there.  The team name is "Team Emma" and is listed under the Mattawan Consolidated School group, (though all you really need to know is the team name.)

We really hope you can join us in some way!  Please let your friends and family know!  It's very exciting for Emma to be able to help other kids with cancer and feel that she's doing her part to help ensure that someday there can be a 100% cure rate.
