Run 2 Cure Neuroblastoma

You might remember quite a while back I introduced you to a beautiful little princess named Evie.  Evie was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma last year just before her 2nd birthday.  She is a courageous little champion and I want to thank all of my wonderful readers who have been praying for her.  I am really excited to let you know that she has just been given the all-clear from her latest round of tests, which officially puts her in remission! Praise God! :)

I ask that you continue to pray for healing and protection for Evie as she enters her final round of treatment (called immunotherapy), over the next few months.  Immunotherapy is a treatment which will help prevent the cancer from ever returning.  I know Evie's family appreciate all of your prayers.

Watching friends endure this difficult time has been heartbreaking, it makes you feel quite helpless, wishing there was more you could do to help.  Not long after I wrote my first post about Evie, I was contacted by the organisers of Run 2 Cure Neuroblastoma, who were letting me know about their upcoming run that is raising money to help find a cure for Neuroblastoma.   I realised that this was an excellent opportunity to be able to help and I would love it if you would join me in supporting this cause.

The Run 2 Cure Neuroblastoma Fun Run is being held on 22 June 2014 and will be raising money to help beat the leading cause of deaths in children under the age of 5 from cancer.   You can choose between the 1km, 5km or 10km fun runs along the beautiful Domain and Botanical Gardens, while taking in the amazing views of Sydney Harbour.

The 1km walk event is called The Little Heroes 1k and is open to children under 5.  Children participating are encouraged to dress up as superheroes! It is a walk for children, by children.
