    Children's Cancer Research - Need Your Help!

    On Saturday, June 9th we will be participating in the MileStones Walk at Village Pointe here in Omaha, an event to raise money for childhood cancer research. We dream of a day when all kids diagnosed with cancer will survive the #1 disease killer of children.

    This cause is so important to us because our good friends Amanda and Bill Schultz have a son, William, who was born about the same time as Jackson, and he has spent most of his short life fighting cancer. It could have just as easily been Jackson, or Samantha, or any one of the other children we love fighting that fight. Imagine how different the last year would have been for you if had been through what they have been through. We will walk on June 9th to raise funds so that children like William will ALL survive this illness. William is growing and doing well right now, but we know a true cure is his best hope for a long happy life! For more information on William's story, see his website:

    Participating in the MileStones Walk is a way for us to make a difference in the Schultz family's life by giving them hope for a cure. We are writing today to ask you to sponsor our walk. It's very easy to help!

    What is the MileStones Walk? MileStones - The CureSearch Walk for Childhood Cancer is a pledge walk that unites people in the fight to reach the day when every child with cancer can be guaranteed a cure. Its goals are to increase awareness of childhood cancer and the critical need for research, and to raise the revenue needed to support the Children's Oncology Group's collaborative research network at work in member institutions from coast to coast.

    All proceeds will go to CureSearch to support lifesaving research conducted by the Children's Oncology Group, the world's largest pediatric cancer research organization. Please feel free to pass this on to others who may be able to help raise money for William's Warriors!

    Thank you for your support and God Bless You!
