Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation
July 27, 2009

This has been a favorite organization of mine for some time now, even before I was a mom. It was recommended to me by a physician due to the efficacy of the research projects it funds and the obvious importance of making strides in pediatric cancer research. Now that I am a mom, PCF is an even more important organization to support. Each time I look at the drawings made by pediatric cancer patients and featured on PCF's holiday cards, I FEEL the struggle (and victories) that these families face.
