Cookies for Cancer

There are three organizations that I support... Brides Against Breast Cancer, Wish Upon A Wedding and Dreams for Kids.  Each of these organizations, although different, are similar in many ways.  They are backed by large groups of people and help those that are in need. 

I had the very humbling experience of attending an event called "Cookies for Cancer" on Saturday, January 22, 2011. It was very cold outside and eight teenage girls, with the help of their parents, saw the need to sit in the cold for seven hours and sell cookies outside of Walt's in Frankfort with the hope of bringing awareness to a community and help to the family of four (4) year old Madison who was recently diagnosed with Leukemia.

The eight students, all from Hickory Creek Middle School (Rachel Gage, Allei Ducay, Savanna Hoffman, Bailey Ogalla, Abbey Graf, Colleen McBrady, Val Lazo, Lindsay Murphy), not only baked over 1,000 cookies and sold special $5.00 bracelets to show their support for "Maddie" they also wore tshirts, which were designed by Rachel Gage.  I asked the girls, friends and table buddies, what made them want to do such an act of kindness and the answer was simple.. "we wanted to help".

Madison's parents, Ryan and Michelle are extremely thankful for all the support given thus far by the girls, the Frankfort community as well as a local cheer team of one of the teens.(Cheer Command).  All proceeds raised from the sale went directly to the family of "Maddie"
 As cold as it was, my heart was warmed by the outpour of support shown this family.  If you would like to donate to "Cookies for Cancer"  or "Bracelets for Maddie" contact Ryan Dempsey at rd62279@gmail.
