1 year today

1 year ago today marks the day that changed our lives forever.  Macy was diagnosed with Fanconi Anemia (causes bone marrow failure usually before the age of 10, and many types of cancer including Leukemia at a young age) and we were devastated.  In the last year we have grieved our old life, and taken on a new life.  Through wonderful Doctors and organizations like the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund we have hope a cure will be found.

There is amazing research going on not only for FA but also cancer research through the FA community.  May 1st was International Fanconi Anemia Day.  The month of May has turned into a month of great effort to raise as much money for FA and cancer research as possible.  

Too many children have been taken from their families much too early because of this disease, and this will continue until we have a cure.

The FA community is trying to raise $2 million dollars this May by trying to have 1 MILLION PEOPLE DONATE JUST $2.00!  If you have ever wanted to make a difference in a child or family's life now is the time.  If you have ever love or lost someone affected by cancer; your donation will help further cancer research as well.  Some of the best cancer research going on including breast cancer research is being done with the help of FA researchers.

Please share this with as many people as you know so we can reach our 1 million people!  All we ask is for $2.00!  That is not even the price of a cup of coffee at most places.  

You can donate directly through the Fanconi Anemia Research Funds web page at this link

Please note you do NOT need a paypal account to donate.  It is just the company making the transaction.  There is also a place you can put "In honor of: Macy Stewart" if you would like.  You will be emailed a receipt for your taxes as well.  

You can also send cash/check directly to the 
Fanconi Anemia Research Fund
1801 Willamette Street, Suite 200
Eugene, OR 97401

I can't express enough our thanks for your donation!  Your donation could be the one to save Macy's life!
take care,
