It's Donna Day 2014 when you can make the difference

Here at ChicagoNow we support each other, read each other's blogs and help each other out when it really matters. Today is one of those days when it really matters, it's Donna Day 2014 when we all gather together to remember Donna, cherished daughter of Mary Tyler Mom.  Donna died at age 4 from pediatric cancer and her mom has made it her life's work to try and make sure that less children die and less families suffer. It's quite the undertaking and we can all help.

donna dayIt is just wrong that children die, I know because I buried a child of my own.

It is hideously wrong that they suffer and fight cancer before losing their fight.

Donna was a beautiful little girl as you can see, with her whole life in front of her. Cancer took it all away.

Cancer just sucks, doesn't it?

What doesn't suck is people, organizations and events which fight childhood Cancer. St. Baldrick's Foundation is one of those fighting this important fight.

Donna's Good things is pairing with St. Baldrick's to raise money to fight childhood cancer. You can volunteer to join by clicking the blue button here. I am not going to get my head shaved but I am going to donate. I hope I can help one future Donna not suffer, not lose her life.

I am urging you to do the same. Click here to donate.

Together we can create a quilt of love, hope, caring and donations to help all the Donnas in this world.

Banding together to fight cancer, that makes me sew happy!
