Calling all Super Heroes!

Super Heroes: Cami and her cancer buddies need your help!  Grab your mask and throw on your cape to come walk with us at the Salt Lake City CureSearch walk on October 5th!

Did you know that September is childhood cancer awareness month?  I know many of you already came out to support us at the Kisses For Cami event and we are so very grateful!  We in NO WAY expect you to come to all of these events we are posting about, but because it is childhood cancer awareness month, I wanted to give you every opportunity to do something for these kids!  

Because you are reading this blog, you know that the cure rates for childhood cancer are obviously far from perfect.  Cami had one of the "good" kinds of cancers, the kind that is the most treatable.. CURABLE even!  Well, those odds didn't work out so well for us, and for far too many others if you ask me!  Too many kids are dying from childhood cancer and we need to do something about it!  Now is your chance!  Sign up for Cami's PS I Adore You team!  We are all dressing as super heroes to stomp out childhood cancer and our shirts will be available on PS I Adore You next week!

SO...what is CureSearch exactly?
CureSearch funds the Children's Oncology Group (or COG), the world's largest children's cancer research collaborative.  Primary Children's is a COG hospital (meaning that most of the oncology staff and Doctors participate in childhood cancer research or the studies that the COG provides).  This means they give money to researchers who are working DIRECTLY with our kids.  This special group of medical professionals are trying to find better treatment plans for our kids, less side effects, and ultimately a CURE to childhood cancer.  How amazing is that?!?  The best part?  97% of donations from this walk will go DIRECTLY to this amazing research.  This is SO SO SO rare in any organization.. 97%-wow!!

All of these children suffer from childhood cancer...just look at those smiles!

Here are some idea's of ways you can help support CureSearch...
#1- Cami's team PS I Adore You!  Come walk with us on October 5th at Sugar House Park!  It is only $10 for adults and kids are FREE!  (Remember every cent of your $10 will go towards finding a CURE for childhood cancer.)  
#2-  Many of you wont be able to physically come and walk with us that day.  Thats OK!  You can sign up to be a virtual walker and still be a part of our team.  Click here to register to be a virtual walker on our team!  Make sure you select the "virtual walker" option.
#3- Donate to Cami's team.  You can donate ANY amount, remember it ALL goes to finding a CURE for the kids.  Click here to donate.
#4- Get your company involved.  We are looking for corporate sponsorship.  If your company is interested in raising money for CureSearch, if they do a dollar match program, if they want to support and advertise plus get a nice tax write-off please contact me at
#5- Volunteer.  You can host a bake/garage/lemonade sale, help us pass out flyers, hang posters, or volunteer the day of the event.  Email me at if you'd like to help out.
#6- Tell EVERYONE you know.  Link this post to your facebook, blog and twitter.  Tell your family and friends to participate.  People can sign up/donate to be on Cami's team, create their own team, or donate to CureSearch in general.  No matter how you chose to participate, it is a great cause worthy of LOTS of support.  

Please try to make it to this fun walk!  Not only will you be helping these kids, it is going to be a BLAST!  They will have live entertainment, activities for the kids, lots of great food, and plenty of good company.  It is sure to be a day the entire family will want to make a tradition year after year.  We cant wait to see you there!
