Lets lend a helping hand....Thank you!

Hello friends, my name is tony I have a six year old girl going on seven who goes door to door asking for a small donation to help kids with leukemia, She lost her grandma do to cancer nearly three years ago and she understands what is like to loss a loved one, And she often talks about her grandma and wishes grandma was here. It touches my heart to see how a little girl such as mine has the desire to help others, She is so proud to be a part of a the school & youth programs.
I just wish I could help everyone who needs help specially those who can not afford the cost of treatments.
I do believe that together we can make a difference and help save a few lives.

What is Leukemia?
Leukemia is Cancer of blood-forming tissues with high levels of leukocytes. Radiation exposure and hereditary susceptibility are factors in some cases. In acute leukemias, anemia, fever, bleeding, and lymph-node swelling develop rapidly. Acute lymphocytic leukemia, found mostly in children, was once over 90% fatal in six months. Drug therapy can now cure more than half these children. Acute myelogenous (granulocytic) leukemia, found mostly in adults, has frequent remissions and recurrences, and few patients survive long. Chronic myelogenous leukemia most often begins in the 40s; weight loss, low fever, weakness, and other symptoms may not develop immediately. Chemotherapy helps the symptoms but may not prolong life. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia, mostly in the elderly, may be inactive for years. Survival rates are better than in myelogenous leukemia; most deaths are caused by infection or hemorrhage.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-11

9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?

There are many in need, If we work together we can make a difference.
