I’m turning this post over to my eldest daughter, Carolyn, who has a favor to ask of you.
My name is Carolyn Maxwell Meyer and I would like to tell you about something going on in my life, and about my sister, Rebecca. My sister Rebecca is 5 years old and loves to play with our little brother Joshua who is 3 years old. We all like to sing, dance, and play with friends, but we do not live a normal life, because Rebecca is undergoing treatment for a rare brain cancer called anaplastic astrocytoma.
To help Rebecca and all the other children with cancer, I’m raising money for childhood cancer research during the St. Baldrick’s Shave-A-Thon. I’m captaining my Elementary School team, Roxboro Cares, and shaving all my hair off my head to raise money for childhood cancer research.
Did you know that kids’ cancers are very different from adult cancers? And childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded? So I decided to do something about it by participation in the St. Baldricks Shave-A-Thon.
Now I need your help. Will you please make a donation? Every dollar makes a difference for thousands and thousands of children, including my sister. All infants, toddlers, school aged, teens, and young adults fighting childhood cancers need your help.
Having a sister with cancer sometimes makes me feel like I’m alone in a dark room and no one will come and get me out. Please donate to help raise money so other sisters never have to feel this way.
