Happy 2016!

We have to start this new year with a new, big THANK YOU! Because of your generosity and support, the Georgia and the Peachy Keens Hero Fund raised over $52,000 last year - FAR surpassing our goal of $15K for 15 in '15! We had several friends step up to shave, other friends organizing fundraisers, and one friend (thank you, Heather!) who directed her own team's fundraising to our Hero Fund. This cooperative effort mirrors the way things are getting done in the childhood cancer research community, with doctors and scientists across different studies and institutions collaborating and sharing their findings. We are all working toward the common goal of cures and safer, less-toxic treatments, and EVERY dollar makes a difference, so thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! And stay tuned for details of our plans for 2016!

After a grand birthday Day of Fun, we rang in the New Year with a delicious dinner and a round of vintage video games and pinball machines. We had star sparklers and sparkling grape juice at midnight and enjoyed one more cake! Six years past diagnosis, a phenomenal fundraising year, and a bright year ahead - we are so grateful!
