On October 26th, 2010, at 9 weeks old, Phoebe Rose was diagnosed with high risk MLL + Infantile Leukemia. On November 18th 2015 , she took her last breath. This is her story of hope and love in the face of cancer and despair. Phoebe always brought the joy and continues to inspire us to make a difference. It is best read from the beginning. Thank-you for visiting.

Childhood Cancer Awareness Rally on Parliament Hill

Join us on Parliament Hill this September 8th, from 6-7:30pm. We will be shouting it from the roof tops.

Kids get cancer too.

We have a fun night lined up. The much loved and very entertaining, Monkey Rock Music will be performing. Rock the Arts Puppets and Molly Penny will be there. There will be crafts, face painting and guest speakers.

Our goal is to raise awareness. To share the message and the hope that greater awareness will lead to increased funding and more research. A cure. That 3.13% of funding from the Canadian Government and only two drugs approved for use in the treatment of pediatric cancer in over twenty years is not enough. That too many children are suffering and dying from this disease and we need a cure. Or at the very least, we need a greater hope of a cure that will come with new therapies and drugs and advances in treatment.

I need to know that if something else happens to throw us off of this smooth road, that there will be something out there to cure Phoebe.

Please join us and help to raise awareness. What better place to share this message than in front of Canada's Parliament Buildings? Where it all happens. We hope that the people who make things happen are listening.

Wear gold or yellow and bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on if you would prefer not to stand.

Phoebe, Mae, Jon and I will be there to greet you.
