Thanks and Giving 2008

Jason and I were just watching the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Thanks and Giving 2008 campaign on TV. What an amazing institution St. Jude is. One of the last statements of the show was from a mom who said that at some point in time, you will be affected by childhood cancer, whether it's your child, grandchild or a friend's child. 

We were touched by cancer this past year when one of Ben's classmates, Alexis, received her diagnosis. It's absolutely true, you never think it will really happen to someone you know and then when it does, your view of life is changed. The good news is our friend Alexis is now cancer free, praise God! But, many children are not and the folks at St. Jude need our donations to continue their amazing work as they push to develop cures for childhood cancers. Jason and I just committed to a monthly donation. 

Won't you join us?
