Balloons for Archie

I'm afraid this post does not contain your usual fluff of food or fashion.

Earlier this year, some dear friends of mine (whom I've known for well over a decade) received some devastating news that their beautiful 7 year old son Archie had been diagnosed with DSRCT, a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer.  It is unfathomable to truly comprehend how difficult and painful this news must have been, but without fuss they pushed ahead to immediately procure the best treatment for their son, one of three beautiful, kind-hearted and vivacious siblings.

Many generous friends asked how they could show their support with genuine impact, and after careful consideration, and with the family's blessings, a group of close friends created a Family Fun Day last Sunday, to raise funds to contribute towards medical expenses, which will very likely require overseas travel.

On Saturday, I threw a belated birthday party for Lil' Brigs #1 and #2, and in lieu of presents I said that instead, if anyone wished to join us in donating to raise funds for our little friend Archie's medical and travel expenses, that they could do so through THIS link.  I thought I would take the opportunity to share it here too.  Even if it is just $1, little drops of water make a mighty ocean.

A few steps are required:
- click on Donations Only tab
- input quantity of 1 in the donations field to go through to the actual donations page
- then type in amount to donate

 I also recently came across the video below for The Truth 365, whose goal is inform the public of the critical need for funding for paediatric cancer research, giving a voice to kids fighting cancer.  I am sure I am not the only one that gets teary on watching this video, and instead of feeling helpless, we can try to make a difference by raising public awareness and/or contributing to cancer research.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.
