All of us have been affected by the dreaded “C” word. Whether it’s a friend, family member, friend of a friend-we can all say we know someone who has been diagnosed with, fought hard, undergone treatment, kicked cancer’s butt, or passed away after a short/lengthy bout with cancer.
Nowhere does it affect me more than when we see our “littles” fight the hard fight. Treatment, pain, hair loss, nausea, sleeplessness, weight loss, inability to eat, hospital stays, hospital visits, tests, surgeries… As parents, our job is to raise our littles and protect them from all the evil in the world. But what can you do as a parent when cancer and illness creep into your life unexpectedly? How do you look into your child’s eyes and assure them the pain and the sickness will get better, when their are no assurances?
This scenario is something our family has witnessed. That’s why I feel it is important for our company to give back to a charity where families and sick kids can be close to each other and maintain a semblance of normalcy during hospital stays.
Ronald McDonald House Calgary/Southern Alberta is a charity which provides a home away from home for families from out of town who have sick children receiving treatment at a Calgary area hospital. It’s important for families to stay together and support each other. And after long days in hospital, Ronald McDonald House is a comfortable and compassionate place to stay and live as normal a life as possible while their world is being turned upside down.
Feel confident in the fact, that a portion of your purchase in Lamb’s Soapworks online store is going to help support these families when they need it most. Because sick kids deserve to be with their families!
