What started out as a site to update on our daughter's cancer has thankfully grown into a site to update on our beautiful family of four. Enjoy our journey...

Realizing a very sad goal, still rewarding...

*please read below...this is in regards to the cookies I have talked so much about!! Way to go everyone who made this possible, this gives so much hope to so many...*

Cookies for Kids’ Cancer

Today a mother's dream came true…to bake and sell 96,000 cookies to provide hope for her son and all of the other children fighting neuroblastoma.

Due to the overwhelming support of so many generous people we are happy, and sad, to announce we have sold all of our cookies. It has been an inspiring effort by so many and we are humbled by the response to our cause.

Our goal was to raise a small part of the $2 million needed to fund the development of a new treatment at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center for our children. With the dedicated help of hundreds of volunteers and generous supporters, we have managed to do just that.

We have a long way to go to reach the $2 million needed to fully fund the project and to realize the dream of providing better odds of survival for our children. Please consider making a donation in lieu of cookies by visiting our donation page.

Words cannot express our thanks enough, but here it is: Thank You.We wish you and your family the happiest and healthiest of holidays.
