As we reflect on 2014 the first thing that comes to mind is how many wonderful people supported our goals and mission of helping families who have children going through a very tough pediatric cancer, blood disorder and bone marrow transplant journey…  On behalf of the families and their children, our board members, our family and lastly Blair – Thank you for your donations, your time and your support we could not have done any of it without each of you.   Our very best to you and yours for a wonderful 2015.
