I worry all the time. But until this last pregnancy, my worries were never too serious. Even then, my son was very healthy compared to other premiees in the NICU. I don’t know how some parents deal with the stress when their child has a serious condition. I guess they just have to cope because life goes on. All I know is that these parents are strong and that’s why I’ve joined a fabulous group of bloggers to support these parents and help them remain strong for their little ones.
I’m one of several personal friends and bloggers that have welcomed new little bundles of joy into our families this spring. I wanted to celebrate these precious gifts of new life by raising awareness and money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
One of the most amazing things that drew me to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital when I started donating years ago, is that no family ever has to pay for the care they receive. That means that families can receive medical care for their child that might not otherwise have been available to them. That fact alone is a miracle!
Here are a few quick facts about St. Jude (source):
- St. Jude has 67,000+ child patients each year.
- It costs $1.9 million to run St. Jude each day. Those funds mainly come from individual contributions.
- The treatments developed at St. Jude have helped to raise the childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent in the past 50 years.
So how can you help?
