Taking steps to raise awareness and funds for kids with cancer
AngelWorks has assisted over 1,000 families and counting that are battling pediatric cancer and now funds an average of one funeral per month.
Every Little Step Matters
I made a promise several years ago to raise awareness for kids with cancer. I am keeping that promise by helping families with children battling cancer EVERY DAY, and doing everything I can to raise awareness.
Childhood cancer is underfunded and is in need of our government’s help for legislative change. It is a horrible monster that is stealing our children but gets little attention. Did you know that 7 children will die today from cancer? I will keep taking a stand, raising my hand, and being their voice until we create a better tomorrow for our young cancer warriors.
I joined this fight by choice and am beyond grateful for my board members and all of our volunteers that joined to help me make a difference. Alone I can do so little, but together we can change the world!
You are missed every day Joe Friend. …And I have finally learned to take time to smell the roses.
