    My girls are both in cheer & drill in Forney. We just learned that one of the 6th grade cheerleaders, Laurren Smith, was diagnosed just 2 weeks ago with bone cancer. I just do not know what I would do, how I would cope if my child were in the same position. So I want to help in any way possible. Prayers, good thoughts or well wishes are nice. You can visit her site which is updated frequently.

    Also, the community has a couple of things planned to help the family, if anyone is nearby and could make it to any of the events:

    9/16 - Care United in Forney is hosting a Car Wash fundraiser from 12-4pm

    9/19 - Blood Drive at Fellowship Baptist Church in Forney 4-8pm

    9/21-22 - Garage Sale Fundraiser at 100 E Bowie St. (If you have any items to donate - no clothes or toys - bigger type items, PM me for the contact info)

    9/22 - Chick Fil A in Forney - ALL DAY Just mention Laurren Smith when you order and a portion of the sales will go to help Laurren and her family

    Please pass this info along to anyone you know who would be interested. It just breaks my heart to see the family going through such a horrible experience. Please take a moment to stop by Laurren's site and sign her guestbook. :) I know it would make her day to know how many people care about her.

    aww, this is so sad, she is a beautiful girl! I will keep her site bookmarked. I noticed where she is being treated, this is where my son was treated as well, the Oncologists there are just amazing.

    Will keep her in our prayers! :hug:hug

    :pray It is horrible to hear about someone being diagnosed with cancer but it just kills me when I hear about a child getting it.

    Cancer is just so horrible especially in kids. Bone cancers usually react very well to treatment from what I know which is a good amount since I almost went through this not to long ago (close call). Hopefully it hasn't spread and she will be living a normal life again shortly. I bet she has a wonderful orthopaedic oncologist since this is one of the best areas anywhere for them! I wish her all the luck in her recovery!

    eta-Ok after looking at her site I found the picture section and I know her doctor, small world. He is very knowledgeable!

    Thanks mamas. It means alot. My girls each bought a little pin to wear at their games, its has a pic of a little cheerleader and says "Go, Fight Cancer, Win!" Cute and gets the point across. Keep those thoughts and prayers coming, I know they all help.
