Making a little progress
Sorry I have been off of the radar here for a little while. Mother's day and the days leading up to it, was rough is an understatement. The twins & hubby made it as nice as possible for this crazy time. I wanted to thank everyone for the ideas for the names of the emergency parent/kiddo fresh from the ambulance or diagnosis bags to honor Cameron's big fight & short little life!! So, we used all of ides in the different versions!!!! The big giant tote bag itself will be called the "Cameron's Fight Big Bag" the contents of the bag are "Cameron's Comfort kits" for all of the people fresh from the ambulance or diagnosis. Then, we want to have "Cameron's Happy Now Bags" (since he always asked "Are you happy now? Are you better? Are you big better or little better?" when his brother & sister were crying or fighting) these can be a toy for the kids, maybe something like an itunes gift card for the teens or a Starbucks gift card for mom or dad. You get the idea. The "Cameron's Happy Now Bags" can be for kids readmitted repeatedly or kids placed in isolation ect. I am super excited this is starting to take shape. There are so many kids and families up there that need this cancer or not. The time we spent in the PICU really showed me what a need there is for just this sort of thing. There just isn't a lot of help out there like this for kids and families in severe medical crisis, cancer, trauma or severe emergency illness. There is just something about this that really speaks to me, just feels right. I just want his little life to make a BIG mark on this world & help sick kiddos. If you have any other ideas let me know. We are still in process of working out the fundraising tax ID plan. The logistics can be tricky to navigate. I will let you know when we are officially up & running!! The first step is forming a plan and setting goals, then the working out of the logistics!!! Thank you for your prayers, love & support!!
