Living with Leukemia has definitely encouraged me to look at life a little differently; I feel more blessed each and every day and understand that every day is a gift. It does not take much to brighten the day of another person; sometimes it only takes a smile or a touch.
Since September is National Leukemia Awareness month, I thought it was the perfect time to put a smile on the face of a child, that is suffering from Leukemia. Bricks 4 the Brave is an organization that is based purely on volunteer participation. The hospital that will be receiving the Legos is St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital, in Boise, Idaho.
Legos. Legos will help them pass the many hours of isolation that they often spend in treatment. Many of the children that are diagnosed with Leukemia will undergo a bone marrow transplant which is a lengthy process that leaves them often alone, with no distraction; Lego's will help! The “cure” rate of children with leukemia is generally higher than it is for adults; Thank God. But ask any child that has leukemia and they will be certain to tell you that their treatment is no “walk in the park”!
You may enjoy becoming “fan” of “The Leukemia Slayer”; Jacob. Jacob is an inspiration to any and all that have managed to find a way into his world. He has battled Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) since December 2, 2010 and recently reached the end of his treatment. (March of 2014.) Of course, he is still dealing issues from his treatment: but continues to help so many others. Please stop by and become a fan; you will be glad that you did!
Anyway, back to Legos for Leukemia; there are three easy was you can join me.
1. Purchase a set of Legos and either drop it off, or mail it to me.
2. Purchase a gift card from either Walmart or Target and mail it to me; I will shop for you!
3. Shop at Amazon and have your choice sent directly to me; many of the Lego sets offer Prime Shipping at no charge. I put a few suggestions here: Legos for Leukemia
As you can see, shopping online would probably be the easiest way for you to join my Legos for Leukemia drive. The kids and I appreciate all of you donations!
Thank you, in advance:
Please send Legos to:
