This is a great organization that was started by Elena Desserich’s parents, Keith and Brooke, to fund research to find the cure for pediactric brain cancer. They believe that finding a cure of this type of cancer will be the home-run and will help find the cure for all cancers.
The coolest part of the story that has inspired me is that after Elena passed away, they kept finding little notes that she had hidden for her family. They were inside books, papers, drawers and their briefcases. I just read the book, Notes Left Behind to document their journey of fighting this awful disease and it was very inspiring to me! I read in less than 24 hours!
Please consider taking the kids out for a treat today! This is a win-win! Not only will you be a hero to your kids after a long day at school but also a hero to kids who are fighting for a cure!
