Yesterday I got the opportunity to go on KSL for a quick bit about our Bloggers Give Back Event and Donation Page with the two families we are supporting. Sarah Peterson and Sara Hancock brought their two boys, Beckham and Carson, who we are trying to raise money for this weekend, at the event that I have been talking about over the past few weeks.
Here is the new clip from yesterday so you can all meet the two boys and here a little bit about what we are doing and where you can donate!
Carson was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in May of 2012. He has and will continue to receive chemotheraphy treatments until July of 2015. He also needs surgery for damage to his airways that occurred at birth. The family was waiting to do this due to the risk of the procedure mixed with the side effects of chemo, but they cannot wait any longer.
Beckham was diagnosed this September with a high risk, stage 4 nueroblastoma. He has had his first round of chemotheraphy and is fighting with everything he has. Beckham has a 40% chance of beating cancer.
We appreciate anything that anyone can do to support or donate to these two boys. Please help spread the word! Our event is tomorrow, but we will be accepting donations through December 6th. I was so glad to get to spend a little bit of time with these amazing boys and their families yesterday! I hope everyone can find a little bit of time or means to help them! Thank you!
