EVAN’S INITIATIVE FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER
A note from Evan:
“Thank you for taking the time to donate $2 and toys for Childhood Cancer. We collected so many toys it filled my Mom’s whole car! I know these toys will make these kids and their families happy. I have raised over $2000 all thanks to my family, friends and SMS community. I met with Lurie’s Children’s Hospital donation director, Kelly Wade, and she told me these toys really make a difference. I know my cousin Nick would have loved getting a surprise during his stay. I also learned that some of these toys help their siblings when they are with their sick brother or sister, because cancer effects the entire family. I want to thank my friends and my sisters friends for helping us collect the toys. We had fun singing Disney songs, too! I had a lot of fun doing this project and I learned a lot. My Aunt (Nick’s Mom) said Nick was looking down on us that day and she was proud of me for raising awareness. Looking forward to doing something fun again next year. Thank you!”
