Origami Owl Fundraiser
For Stomach Cancer
Please help me give to this great organization!
This particular cause hits home for me because as some of you may or may not know, my father is battling this disease right now. When he was diagnosed this past december with metastatic gastric cancer, I did a lot reading, searching, trying to find answers, possible advancements, anything and was saddened to find that not a lot of research is being conducted on stomach cancer, yet it is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide. Per cancer death, stomach cancer receives the least amount of federal funding of any cancer. Debbie’s Dream Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about stomach cancer, advancing funding for research, and providing education and support internationally to patients, families, and caregivers. Debbie’s personal story and battle with gastric cancer is very inspiring. Upon diagnosis, she was told that her chances of being alive in 5 years was less than 5%. That was in 2008, and here she is still alive and making a difference for others battling this horrendous disease. After connecting with Debbie through a stomach cancer caregivers group on Facebook, her story was so inspiring and it gave me hope. It was at that point that I decided to help her foundation. For the entire month of April, I will be donating 30% of Origami Owl proceeds to Debbie’s Dream Foundation. To place your order, use the provided order forms or you can order on line at:
