Every Little Bit Counts
If you live in New York City, you might have heard about Nathan and Elisa Bond, a Brooklyn couple diagnosed with aggressive forms of cancer within nine days of each other. Parents of an 18-month old, they're both battling for their lives. Friends and family have rallied behind the Bonds to help raise money for their staggering medical bills and I wrote about an upcoming benefit on Mommy Poppins yesterday.
I also included information about Cookies for Kids' Cancer, a non-profit organization started by the Witts, a New York City family whose 2 1/2 year old son Liam was diagnosed with cancer four years ago. Sadly, he passed away in January, but in honor of what would have been his 7th birthday this month, there are a few events going on in New York City in the next few weeks to raise money for pediatric cancer.
Unfortunately, cancer is all around us these days. Everyone knows someone who has been affected. Sending money to big charities certainly helps, but putting faces to names makes my contributions feel more meaningful.
