September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month and Hannah's HOPE as been showing our support and spreading the word that kids get cancer too!

We have been so blessed this month by so many people. Each of our events have been a success and each event has been better than I could have ever imagined!

We have been at Jump!Zone for the kids to play, we had a golf tournament, a Gala, a 5K run/walk and hot wing eating contest, and we finished the month off with a kids carnival! Each and every event was amazing. The support from each and every individual who has contributed has been astounding.

The name Hannah's HOPE is getting around, people are hearing about us and that is great! We have been on the radio advertising our events, advertisments in the newspapers, and even Hannah's Story was in a local magazine, Peekaboo.

September has been a success!

I am so proud of how Hannah's HOPE is developing. The need is there to help other families that have kids with cancer. We have already helped over 10 families since March; enabling these families to be with their children while battling this disease. We are receiving 2-3 new applications a month. The need is there and these families need our support!

"Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it is in your power to act." Proverbs 3:27

We miss Hannah like crazy, it seems like it was just yesterday that she was our healthy, happy baby girl. I can't believe that this time last year we were at Arkansas Children's Hospital watching Hannah receive her chemotherapy and radiation treatments, having surgery after surgery fighting for her life. Such a brave girl she was.

I think about all the kids who get newly diagnosed each day and all the kids that we have had the pleasure to meet who are fighting for their lives. I pray each and every day for all the kids I know and the ones I don't know who have been stricken with this terrible disease! We are doing everything within our power to make a difference and to help these kids and their families.

I ask you...... Are you doing your part?

All in all September has been an amazing super busy month and we have been blessed. We have seen God's amazing hands in each and every event we have done this month and we are excited to start planning for our future events and our 2nd Annual events next year!

"The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy."
Psalm 126:3
