September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know:

* Less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute's research budget is allocated to research aimed at solving childhood cancers?

*The average cost for a hospital stay for a child with cancer is $40,000 PER STAY?

*Children admitted to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital NEVER get a bill?

* St. Jude pays for treatment, housing, travel & food for all St. Jude families?

* Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall survival rate for childhood cancer from 20% when the hospital opened in 1962 to more than 80% today. In addition, St. Jude has achieved a 94% survival rate for ALL, up from 4% in 1962, and the survival rate for medulloblastoma, a type of brain tumor, increased from 10 percent to 85% today.

Why Participate? Audrey's Story:

My grade school friend Cori has a daughter named Audrey. Audrey just celebrated her 3rd Birthday and has gone through more in her first 3 years than most of us have in our lifetimes. In 2013, at just 8 months old, Audrey was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. She had 5 different tumors and cancer cells in her bone marrow. She was admitted to St. Jude Children's Research hospital and in the words of Cori "Without a doubt, it saved my baby’s life."

Last year I asked Cori if I could do a fundraiser for her. She said that would be amazing, but she wanted the money to go to St. Jude. She felt so strongly about their mission and the lifesaving work of the doctors and staff there. Last year I was able to donate over $300 of my commission from the Stella & Dot fundraiser. I would love to be able to do over $500 this year!

Thanks to St. Jude, Audrey is on a positive track today. I would love your help in ensuring that other kids get the same chance that Audrey has! Check out the info below to see what you can do.
