Real Life Story

Our inspiration:

In October of 2007, Kathleen began daycare four days a week with Sherryl "RaRa" Morris. RaRa was truly a daily inspiration simultaneously battling her cancer diagnosis and caring for multiple toddlers. "I can't wait to get back to work. Spending time with those children is the best medicine in the world." Even though her activity was limited at times, she was always happy to give a bottle, read a book, or provide multiple hugs. In a private conversation she once confessed that during radiation/chemotherapy she realized how much treatment effected not only the patient but the entire family. Her hope was to help a handful of children in her hometown - but our hope is to help many more.

RaRa lost her battle in March 2010 and a loving tribute was made by former parents of the daycare services. A bench near a children's playground will forever honor her love for children. Yet - we were inspired to create a more living tribute - and facilitate her dream of making it just a little easier on those directly effected by a diagnosis of cancer.

Help a child experience childhood!

It's Back to School time and kids all across the country are hoping to participate in after-school activities. For some, this is not possible because their parent has a diagnosis of cancer and focus has turned to survival. Family income has been reduced and extra costs of co-pays, meds and travel have taken over.
