Shaving Her Head for Childhood Cancer

January 25, 2015


One of my friends is shaving her head for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.  I am so proud of her and wanted to share this story.  We often get so caught up in our own lives that we forget about others in need.  Others like children battling cancer and their families.  Precious lives.  So read on and […]

Where Will I Land?

August 21, 2012
