Every morning I wake up to this picture. It sits prominently on our dresser. My eyes immediately search to it. It’s beautiful and sad all at the same time.
It reminds me of our beautiful son. It reminds me of the journey he went through…those ups and downs. It reminds me that he should be here as a playful 4 year old. It reminds me to have strength each day, no matter what obstacles are ahead.
We’ve shared this month with so many other families since 2014. It’s changed us. It’s shown us what is important in life. It has us fighting on a daily basis to make a difference in##chi rare cancer research.
Thank you for sharing Shane’s journey. Cancer is terrible at any age, but when it’s a child whose life barely even began, there is no comparison. If we don’t stand up for Shane and other children like him, who will?
On Monday, Ella and Chase were introduced to Drexel University’s women’s soccer team.
The Kisses for Kyle Foundation has created a partnership with the team in support of childhood cancer. Ella and Chase were chosen to be part of this partnership!
You know how much our family loves soccer and some of us are Drexel alums, so we are so thankful for this pairing.
Ella was only 4 when Shane passed and for her this is a much needed mentoring partnership to encourage her and show the importance of hard work and most importantly, teamwork.
The reality that summer is almost over is upon us. September is not just the start of the school year for us, but more importantly it’s our month to raise our voices even higher than normal about Childhood Cancer.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
This year is our busiest yet.
We are proud to be apart of the proclamation in Pennsylvania which declares September Childhood Cancer Awareness month. We received the official document from Governor Wolf on Shane’s 4th birthday.
The growing awareness of childhood cancer has brought about many events throughout the month which we can all be involved in. I will post them as they come along.
Shane’s Future Days is working with Kendra Scott in Ardmore, PA to help host a Shop for a Cause event on September 7th to benefit our foundation in honor of Shane and Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
We hope to see many locals out on that night to help kick start what we hope will be a BIG month for bringing to light a battle that continues throughout the months, years and really, forever, for families affected by childhood cancer.
We are so excited for our upcoming event September 7th in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness month!
Come shop at Kendra Scott from 6-8 with some sips and sweets!
20% of the sales will go to Shane’s Future Days!
The holidays are coming and this is a perfect way to get yourself or someone you love a beautiful piece of jewelry all while giving back to help fight childhood cancer in Shane’s memory.
