Supporting Our Pediatric Cancer Warriors

This has been a day in the making for the past few months and I am so honored to be here along side an amazingly talented group of ladies.
 
Wednesday was the kick off of our Blog Tour to help raise funds for childhood cancer.  The Bloggers for Pediatric Cancer Warriors will also be holding an auction of handmade goods October 27-28th, so please come support us.  When Shawna at TroopsToTots reached out about her challenge I didn’t bat an eye at her request for help.  My cousin was diagnosed with terminal cancer at four and her challenge hit home and really pulled at my heartstrings.

The American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO) was a huge support for my family and in return we want to help support their mission.   The ACCO’s mission is to provide information and support for children with cancer and their families and to support research leading to a cure of all children diagnosed.  Our proceeds raised from this auction will go directly to the American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO).

Along the way we have met some incredibly generous people who are just as dedicated to this cause as we are, as well as some amazing companies who are helping to sponsor our auction.
My daughter recently started her first year of soccer so I only found it fitting to promote our sponsor, the New York Red Bull Soccer Team, who are based out of Harrison, New Jersey.

The team has generously given 4 lower level tickets for a home game to the auction.  If you live in the area it would be such a fun event to get the family out and enjoy this fall weather.  I know my daughter would love to go if we lived closer.  Since I’m sure there are only a few select people who live in the area another great way to support the auction, the team and ACCO would be to donate the tickets to the American Childhood Cancer Organization’s New York office which will then give the tickets to a family in their network.
 
I can picture that little girl’s face now, (or boy’s but since I’m a soccer mom to a girl I automatically see pigtails and pink) a smile from ear to ear.  She may not get to participate in the game anymore but getting to go will make her feel that much more special.  That much more fancy.
Have you ever read any Fancy Nancy books?  Well I’m pretty sure they were written about my daughter.  She is the girl that always wears a dress, even when playing in the mud and wholeheartedly thinks bows on your socks make you a better soccer player.  She makes life more interesting and I wouldn’t wish her any other way!

Thankfully, 421 Myers Design has a solution for those boring black socks her team was issued.  The removable Bow Sock Pattern is a quick and easy way to make my girl feel a little more fancy on the field.
 
 And I swear she really did play better too.  I mean, look at that face of determination, that heart of a warrior.

I am blessed my little girl is only fighting a battle on the soccer field but there are so many warriors out there fighting another kind of fight and it’s a tough one.  But we can do something to help them!

    Such a great cause to be helping out! The bow socks look great and I really hadn’t thought about bringing them into the athletic world. Great idea!
