Pack your bags!

Guess where you're going this tomorrow?

You're coming with us to NEW ORLEANS!!!!!!!!

Uh, thanks, Megan, but why would I be going to New Orleans?

To grant The Kyrie Foundation's second $50,000 to cure pediatric brain cancer! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !  

That's right! You and your family and your friends and your kids and your companies and your business friends and your kids' friends' parents and anyone and everyone has made it possible to bestow another $50K grant dedicated to saving all of the life, creativity and wonder that resides in children's little brains! The Kyrie Foundation has been invited to New Orleans to meet this week with the PBTF for the 2011 Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Basic and Translational Research Conference. We hope to learn that current research status in this saga for a cure and connect with those leading the charge globally.

I'll try to post updates on our Facebook page, so if you're not a fan, you can like us now!

Once again, we are stunned to have reached this second grant so quickly—that is a testament to your goodness. We've said it a million times here on Kyrie's blog: it's the decision to do something, to give a little, to give a lot, to give your time, to connect your resources, to just care—this is what finds the cure. If everyone only knew how powerful the doing part of living is.

These dollars you've raised are just that—raised up in hope for the little ones fighting, raised up in thanksgiving for the little lives making our hearts forever changed and raised up in solidarity against cancer. I typed this with grateful tears ... thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
