As you are aware, childhood illnesses and disorders are serious problems that affects the lives of numerous kids in
our community and around the world. The Stop the Hurt & The Care A lot Foundation has teamed up with the Pull 4
Hope Campaign and I am writing you to ask for your support.
Leukemia, Rett Syndrome, and Microcephaly are 3 illnesses that we have found that have hit close to home.
Leukemia is cancer that starts in blood-forming tissue such as the bone marrow and causes large numbers of blood cells to be produced and enter the bloodstream. Rett syndrome is a rare genetic disord er that affects the way the brain develops. Microcephaly is an abnormally small head due to failure of brain growth.
Won’t you please make a contribution to the Pull 4 Hope Campaign? Our goal is to help these children:
6 year old
Gabe Lester, (diagnosed with Leukemia), 3 year old Maddie (has Rett Syndrome), & 3 year old Matthew Short,
(who has Microcephaly) fight thru there illnesses with love, hope & monetary donations.
We have scheduled a “Pull 4 Hope” April 28th, 2012. “Strong Men” of McDowell County along with “Strong Men”
of Tampa Florida & Detroit will pull a school bus from Welch Post Office to Trinity Church at 12:00 p.m. You may
sponsor an athlete for $20 or make a monetary donation of your choice. Click the link below for the sponsor table.
This is a non-profit organization & 100% of all proceeds will go to these children & their families. Any amount that
you are able to share will help us help them with their medical needs.
