Sitting in a planning meeting for another event I sat and listened to the Founders of Circle of Care speak about their passion for helping families who children's lives had been touched by Cancer. Liz and Dawn have been exactly where these families are now and know exactly what they need to do to be helpful and make an impact. When you realize, that you yourself could find yourself in a hospital with your child who has just been diagnosed with cancer and you have not been home all day, or eaten, and have $2 in your pocket, you need someone. You need Circle of Care. You realize they are indeed providing amazing service. I had a pit in my stomach and knew I was called to get involved. I volunteered to help in any way I could. Circle of Care makes a difference EVERY SINGLE DAY to someone. All who come in contact with them are very blessed!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Hand delivering a Bag of Love to a student in my Child's class who was diagnosed with Cancer. Knowing that that bag brought love, comfort and fun to that little girl!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change a thing.

I met the three women who started Circle of Care a few years back through a mutual friend. I started off helping out with a fundraiser and saw right away the incredible motivation, willpower and dedication these women possessed. Hearing their stories about how their children survived cancer was so inspiring to me. They met and wanted to help other mothers feel like they had a support system because when your child is diagnosed with cancer the world falls from beneath you. I too, am the mother of a cancer survivor, so I could relate to their crusade. I was, and still am, in awe of these women. We all have other children, families, extra curricular activities, etc. and they are still out there trying to raise awareness and pounding the pavement in order to help other families that are experiencing pediatric cancer. It's amazing how you can feel a connection with someone by exchanging chemo stories, blood transfusions, relapses, all things that we wish no one has to go through. Circle of Care is an organization that brings a special light to a community that is growing day by day. It's nice to know someone out there cares and wants to help in any little way possible.

Within the three years I have been involved, the word of Circle of Care is finally reaching to other communities.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not change a thing!
