Done!!! In memory of my mother Doris who passed away from Bladder cancer on New years day this year.

Come on guys I challenge you all to donate at least 5 bucks!!! This is an excellent EXCELLENT use of the money that you would normally use to buy a coffee at Starbucks, a burger at Burger King, or a Dozen Minnows.

:thanks Firewrench for doing this for the kids :respect

Thanks to the folks that jumped on this thread and gave this morning, every little bit helps.

Here's one of the kids we could be helping. He's a little fishermen.

Micah V.
LOCATION: Bakersfield, CA, US
AGE: 4

Image

Micah has always been a very sweet loving little boy. Some of his favorite things to do are fishing with his papaw, playing on his papaw's boat in the garage and playing outside on his swing set with his two sisters (Rachel 5 and Crystel 2). He also loves to visit with his memaws, papaws and his auntie Joy. The year of 2009 has been very rough for Micah. We found out that both papaws had cancer in January. One had lymphonia and the other had kidney cancer. In Febuary his papaw that had kidney cancer passed away during the surgury to remove his kidney. After his papaw's passing Micah started waking up in the night randomly and screaming. He could not tell us what the problem was. We assumed that he was having night terrors because of the stress of the recent events. In mid March we started to notice that Micahs stomach was very distended. After about 2 weeks it was not getting any better, on Wednesday, March 25 we went to Ventura to spread papaw's ashes at Anna Coppa Island. The whole family was together for this. Afterward we were at Micah's Uncle John's house and I (mom) brought his stomach issue up to the rest of the family. We all decided that Micah whould be seen by his Doctor. After several tests and x-rays we found out that Micah has ALL leukemia. The Childrens Hospital in Madera took quick actions to start his treatment. For the last few weeks Micah has been receiving his chemo treatments at Childrens Hospital. He seems to be doing well so far. We have great hope that Micah is going to pull through this and grow to be a stong and healthy young man.

Come on guys we can do better and this. We can help
these people dealing with a debilitating disease.

I watched my Mother-In-Law go from a healthy, smiling
lady to a dying helpless woman within six months.
