Let’s #StepUp to get kids with cancer out of the hospital and back onto the playground.


In which I pour ice water on my head for a good cause! My ALS donation is happening via an ALS Walk for Life team in memory of the father of a former classmate.

I do hope that when the day comes, whether in 1, 10, or 100 years, I don’t want you to think of me and feel sad. Even now, while I’m alive, don’t think of me and say, “Poor girl. It’s sad she’s sick”. Not that you do that. Think of me and think of the sunshine, and how I looove animals, and drawing something nice.
- Esther Grace Earl (1994-2010) in a letter to her parents, dated Christmas 2008.


I can’t believe I’m almost cut out of this.


Help kids like Lexi, Penelope, and Asiana shine! Will you step up and support more funding for childhood cancer research?


Just found this little gem ❤️⚡️ #leakycon #estherday #tswgo


Finding this pic on FB with our bracelets right next to Esther’s has absolutely made my morning!

When loved ones die, people always say, “Don’t be sad. I’m sure they would have wanted you to be happy.” I’m sure that’s true. But let’s be realistic here, people also want to be missed. It is every person’s nightmare to leave the world behind as if they had never been there at all.
