Dear TDCF Friend;

Every September which is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month; I reflect on my journey as a childhood cancer advocate and I am grateful.

Grateful to be a small part of stories such as young Perfect’s story of survival. Grateful for the survivors who are now in schools, on scholarships, going forward with their lives.

The work we have done in the last five years has been equal parts difficult, heartbreaking, heart-wrenching, and rewarding, fulfilling and purposeful.

I am so grateful for the foundation’s journey and impact.

When I began this journey, I used to feel surprised and even hurt when people seemed to not be interested in helping. Maturity has taught me that everyone has their own problems, their own cause, and their own calling.

This is mine, my calling.

And I am grateful to be able to answer it.

This month is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Please join us and be a voice for little children dealing with cancer all over the world.


  • Wear It: Get creative and wear gold in honor of children with cancer or Order a TDCF #ChildrenAreGold T-shirt
  • Raise awareness on social media: Use your Social media platforms to talk about Childhood Cancer with the hashtag #ChildhoodCancerAwarenessMonth
  • Support Zion (3 years, Retinoblastoma) with his treatment with the hashtag #SupportZion

May God keep you and those you love in perfect health always.
