The Best Day

Seventeen years ago, Georgia Lee Moore came bounding into this world to the sounds of Willie Nelson's version of "Georgia On My Mind." The crowd in the delivery room sighed in unison as the Lone Star State's favorite son welcomed its newest daughter, and we've been keeping her on our minds and in our hearts ever since.

Ten years and one day later, she was diagnosed with cancer, and we adopted that phrase as our mantra to keep Georgia and all kids fighting cancer on everyone's mind. We learned a lot, we gave thanks for Georgia's daily victories, and we made it our mission to help other families who landed in CancerWorld just as inexplicably as we did.

Seven years and four months later, Georgia is Officially Cancer-Free. Today, we have the privilege of celebrating her - a happy, healthy girl with a strong body, a giant heart, a bright smile, and even brighter mind. She is a survivor and a ray of hope for other kids in the fight. She beat cancer and is poised to take on the world. She is a champion!

Go get it, baby girl - we love you so much.
