5K for Lila J

This is my friend Annie from high school with her darling family. When her daughter Lila was 3 months old she was diagnosed with an aggressive and dangerous brain tumor. After 2 years of rigorous treatment including chemotherapy and numerous surgeries (all the while being fed through a stomach tube) she is finally cancer free.... and super-cute to boot! It's an amazing story and you can read about it here. Through the whole experience they received much help and support from the pediatric brain tumor foundation. Now, they are giving back and have organized a 5K race to donate to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation

Since I won't be able to go to the race in Austin, TX, next weekend, I'm going to contribute the proceeds from my shop from Friday, April 30 to Saturday May 1st to 5KforLilaJ. Also, this will be the last chance to get Family Tree Kits in time for Mother's Day. So if you've been thinking about getting one, now is the time!
Please spread the word so we can make a great contribution to this cause.
Thanks!
