Riley had his 6 month checkup today. It's hard to believe it's only been six months since he was born. He's grown so much in such a short time and continues to make us smile with every new development. Going in for Riley's 6 month checkup I had some friends on my mind. Particularly a piece by my friend Stephen that he wrote back in 2011 about his son, Josiah. Stephen writes about Josiah's 6 month checkup and how it began his son's battle with cancer. It's one of Stephen's best pieces of writing and is a reminder that I'm not control of Riley's life. God is.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Stephen has set up a St. Jude fundraiser page that's running until the end of the month.
I've set up a St. Jude fundraising page that I will be linking to instead of RSS sponsors for the month of September. My goal is to raise
$1,000 $2,500 $4,000 $6,000$10,000 for the kids of St. Jude this month It takes $2 million a day to run the hospital and research center, so this is a drop in the bucket. Let's make it our drop.
Please donate to St. Jude and help end childhood cancer.
