The Reign Begins

Last night, we attended the official kick-off of the LLS Man and Woman of the Year campaign, so Georgia’s “reign” as Girl of the Year is now underway! All of the candidates are very excited to get the fundraising competition going, so it looks like it’s going to be a great year. The campaign runs for 10 weeks, and if you click on the icon in the sidebar, you can learn more about it – and the candidates – and see pictures of our girl as well. And if you’d like to make a donation to a particular candidate in support of LLS, I know they would appreciate it! The winners will be announced at the grand finale event in May, so we’ll let you know how it turns out!

In other news, St. Baldrick’s is two weeks away, and we’d LOVE your help in raising funds for childhood cancer research! We’ll be volunteering at the Dell Children’s event on March 19 as well as a promotional event on March 12 – encouraging folks to Be Brave and Get Bald! We are passionate about this organization because of its support of Children’s Oncology Group, one of the world-wide leaders in clinical trials and studies specifically for childhood cancers. The COG trial that Georgia is participating in recently produced some significant finds regarding a certain phase of her treatment protocol, and although we are past the point of her enjoying the benefit of those finds, we are happy to be a part of any discovery that means a better treatment experience and outcome for these kids. We want to do whatever we can to make sure this critical, life-saving research continues, so PLEASE consider joining us! Click on the Hope banner in the sidebar to make a donation and make a difference. Thank you!

Have a great weekend, y’all! : )
