“I am only one,
But still I am one.
I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”
All the children on these pages are fighting cancer, the majority of the children are fighting neuroblastoma, but there is something else they all have in common … amazing spirit and strength of character in the face of adversity, and beautiful smiles.
(The photos of the children are here with the blessing of their parents/guardians.)
Jess is having her first guitar lesson on August 19th (2016) ... she already looks the part with her awesome pink guitar.
We're aiming for a full band here ... with Jess on guitar and Hayley on vocals as 'Axl Rose', or maybe Lady GaGa as she complements Jess's pink guitar.

It is with a heavy heart and many tears that I have to write this to tell you that beautiful little Scarlett gained her angel wings yesterday.
My heart goes out to her wonderful parents.
Rest in Peace Scarlett, you are an inspiration and I promise you I will do my best for you, and all the other children affected by neuroblastoma, to raise awareness of this dreadful disease.
