Review for Trevor S Treasures, Woodbridge, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Trevor's Treasures is the organization conceived by a little boy fighting the terrible childhood cancer of Neuroblastoma. Instead of concentrating on his own suffering, this amazing child wanted to help other children in hospitals and clinics by bringing a little joy into their ordeals.
The first actual incounter I had with Trevor's campaign was at a summer party for the customer's of his grandparents business. Trevor was going around talking to everyone about his mission while holding open his treasure chest. The outpouring of love and admiration for Trevor and his unselfish kindness towards other children was evident throughout the day. Instead of talking about how sad it was to know about Trevor's illness, everyone was enthused to help him reach his goal of bringing some happiness to other children, and we all were "pumped-up" to help in the fight against cancer in any way we could.
Trevor Blake is a truely inspirational person. I am proud to wear the blue and green (colors for neuroblastoma cause) Trevor's Treasures wrist band to bring attention to his wonderful works, and I have donated to many fundraisers organized on behalf of this worthy cause.
While I have not attended any of his joyful deliveries to other cancer victums, I have seen pictures of the celebrations and seen the unexpected happiness in the eyes of those children and their families.
I believe Trevor's Treasures is helping this little boy, Trevor Blake, fulfill his life's purpose here on earth---to bring love, kindness, and joy into the lives of so many while they are suffering the horrors of childhood cancer, and to bring awareness of the need for funds for research to cure neuroblastoma and other cancers.

I have personally seen the results of this organization through photographs of Trevor's deliveries of gifts to children at hospitals and clinics. Usually these events are only attended by the sick children and their families and the medical staff because of the need to minimize the possible exposure to germs. I have also personally seen the effect Trevor's enthusiasum has on people: It brings awareness of the needs of those suffering from cancer, and spurs people on to donate money and/or time to help.

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

I wouldn't change a thing. This is a heartfelt effort by a little boy with cancer to do good in this world. He is the driving force behind this organization, and his works and intentions are pure.

Role:  Donor & I have donated to Trevor's Treasures through fundraisers such as St. Baldricks headshaving. Also, instead of flowers at funerals, I have donated funds to Trevor's Treasures in honor of the deceased.
