Sora is a Good Cookie...
In loving memory of Meredith Israel Thomas, Sora has decided to donate her 7th birthday - forfeiting a party and presents - and instead, raise money for this wonderful organization, Cookie for Kids' Cancer.
She has the opportunity to truly make a difference and give back to this wonderful cause, and I am a proud Mommy.
During the month of September, Pediatric Cancer awareness month, Sora will be raising funds for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to funding pediatric cancer research. It was founded by a determined mother to help increase her young son’s odds in his fight against cancer. She had the idea to bake cookies to sell during the holidays. It was a larger-than-life event, and a huge success. During that time, she realized people want to get involved; they just need to know how.
It might come as a surprise that pediatric cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S. And two-thirds of children who do survive will develop long-term side effects, including secondary cancers and organ failure…a result of the very treatments that once “cured” them. This is why it is critical we find finding safer, more effective treatments. And it’s why we are joining the fight.
Sora's goal is to raise $700 for her 7th birthday!
I hope you will “Be a Good Cookie” and support her efforts. Every dollar counts and every small act makes a difference. Cookies for Kids’ Cancer’s efforts since 2008 have brought 6 promising new treatments to clinical trial, where they’re available to children fighting cancer TODAY.
Your tax-deductible donation would be a tremendous step in the mission to change the statistics for the 40,000 children actively battling cancer in the US right now. Please consider making an online donation to Sora's fundraising page.
I also ask that you reach out to others you know, and inspire them to follow in your footsteps. Help Sora spread the word. Because if we all do a little, it adds up to a lot.
Lots and lots of love,
Brooke & Sora
