Amidst the hustle and bustle of every day life you may have missed the fact that September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness month. I wasn't aware of this until Brittany reached out and told the story of Noah and his band aid project...
Noah was a little boy from the Kansas City area who, at the tender age of six fought and lost his battle with cancer in June of 2015.
However, during Noah's time battling leukemia and undergoing many treatments that required the prick of a needle, he discovered how uncool the traditional band aids were. And, Noah recognized there were kids on his hospital floor who were going through the same things as him, and not a single cool band aid was distributed to them either.
That's when Noah began his band aid project. Noah began a drive to collect kid-approved band aids to bring to the hospital. What started as a small project turned into something much larger.
I wish I had the words to do justice to the compassion Noah had. Instead, I ask that you please take a few quick minutes to watch this courageous little boy, and listen to his story. Fair warning that you will likely need a tissue or two.
In Brittany's email, she asked bloggers if they would be willing to donate to the band aid project. After hearing Noah's story, and watching the video there was no hesitation on our end. We loaded up a box with band aids and sent it out. This little boy, whom we've never met, has touched us in such a profound way.
