Amazing Stephanie

Posted on: June 20, 2012

I’ve likely mentioned Heather or Gary in my previous blogs, they’re our friends across the street and we often gather with them for giggles and nibbles! They have a daughter Stephanie who will be twelve this August! She is an amazing child that not only is adorable and smart but she’s also a twelve-year-old girl with a huge heart!

Stephanie is raising money for neuroblastoma research, it is the most common extracranial solid cancer in childhood and the most common cancer in infancy. Stephanie lost a her pal Cole to this disease and is trying real hard to reach $500 to donate to research for neuroblastoma, so that no other child has to suffer this fate.

Most people have never heard of neuroblastoma, a rare type of cancer that almost always occurs in infants and young children. It’s actually the most common type of cancer in infants, but it’s still rare enough that many doctors have never cared for a child with neuroblastoma.

Stephanie has been making bracelets, you know those string bracelets that are made of some kind of knots and are adorable! She makes most of them all herself , but has recruited a few of her friends to help in the cause! She’s selling those bracelets for $1 each but will take donations of any denomination! I had her bring some bracelets to my Ladies Wellness Day and she made $26 and got an order for 12 more bracelets from that party! I’d really like to help her reach her goal of $500, I believe it’s an important part of her healing process.

If you know of anyone who’d like to purchase a bracelet or twenty, please contact me through the blog and I will pass on the order. If it’s a donation you’d like to make, again, contact me and I will pass the info on to you as well. I know that Stephanie would be so grateful for any orders and/or donations!

My sincerest regards,

Sweet Marie
