Join the Mighty Fight Against Childhood Cancer‏ With Kaela



How many of my readers hate that dreaded C word like I do? If you've been following along with me for some time you may know that my grandfather died of that dreaded C word, and my grandma is currently fighting it as well. Well today I want to focus the spotlight on the kids who are fighting and the people who are helping with that fight. When contacted by Aunt Anne's team to join the mighty fight with Alex's Lemonade Stand, there was no way I was going to say no. While St. Jude's and Susan G. Komen are both of mommy's charities, anything that can help bring that dreaded disease to an end is what we're all about. We were not paid to do this post and we did not receive any compensation of any kind, this is something that we truly believe in and we were only to happy to share.


Today I want to focus the spotlight on our Mini but Mighty Hero of the week Kaela.


Kaela hails from Sayreville, NJ and was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) just before her fifth birthday. Although she has faced many challenges in her short life, including an above-the-knee amputation on her left leg, she has remained brave and positive through it all. Just look at that beautiful smile on her face. She continues to inspire others by volunteering and raising awareness about the need for more funding. You can read more about Kaela on Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation website.

You can also check out this video of Kaela's journey:



This summer Auntie Anne’s is proud to partner with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation in the fight against childhood cancer. But the fight is far from over – and they need your support!

This summer, the goal is to find cures for children who are in the mighty fight of their life against cancer.

So how can you help? By donating, you’re helping Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation fund potentially life-saving cancer research. Here is what your donation could fund:

  • $5: Supports Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation one cup at a time
  • $15: Provides a gas card to help a family drive to a hospital for treatment
  • $25: Funds a half hour of childhood cancer research
  • $50: Funds one hour of childhood cancer research
  • $100: Enables a family to reside at a nearby hotel so they can stay close to their child receiving treatment
  • $400: Funds one day of childhood cancer research

If the goal of $35,000 is reached, then they will be able to help fund 700 hours of childhood cancer research! In appreciation of your donation, Auntie Anne’s will email all donors a $1 off coupon, valid at participating U.S. stores, within 7-10 days after your contribution.

  1. That little girl is amazing and an inspiration. Cancer sucks and I hate it. My grandmother has beat breast cancer twice and I can only hope she doesn't have it again. Children all around the world are fighting a battle they shouldn't. I think that you sharing this information is amazing and greatly appreciate by those children. We have to continue to find ways to raise money and help this kids. No one and I mean NO ONE deserves to have cancer. Its pure evil!!! Thank you so much for sharing and spreading the word!!!

  7. That little girl is amazing. And I'm so sorry about your grandmother. Cancer has taken the lives of far too many people, and it will continue to do so. We need to fight.

  12. Beautiful little girl with a very confident smile that shines :) I will be praying for her. What an amazing cause to promote. Life is too short, and for some way too short. My father in law is going thru chemo right now for 4 - 6 months for lung cancer. None has spread as of now.

  13. Many people fear of getting cancer and having their loved ones also be struck by the big C. I think the government should put more emphasis on providing help to the kids.

  18. What a brave and inspirational little girl, this looks like a great charity to get behind. My husband has lost almost his whole family to cancer in the last 10 years. He lost his mother, 63 year old sister and 41 year old brother last year alone. It's a horrible disease!

  36. She is very inspiring girl. This is such a great cause and we need more places like this to help with Cancer Research. Childhood cancer is one of the less researched than any other cancers. We need that to change.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Amazing post! Cancer is beyond horrific and whenever it touches a child - it is just beyond incomprehensible. It's so wonderful to read about those working so hard to eradicate this disease and provide care and support for those who are affected. Thanks so much for sharing!

  41. If everyone gives just one dollar we can truly make a difference. I hate when people only talk but don't show any action. I'm getting paid on Friday so will definitely support the cause. I had a friend who's daughter died from Leukemia a few years ago and it was devastating. Kaela is an amazing young woman and I wish her all the best. You go Kaela!!
