No One Fights Alone Fundraiser
This Thanksgiving, we would like to thank the amazing community who have been supporting Skye's journey even after her transition to heaven.
The "No One Fights Alone" fundraiser was put together by Skye's good friends from middle school, Jett, Reid, and Nathan. It turned out so beautifully with so many people gathered in honor of Skye. We raised funds to help young warriors and their families; 2yo Nara(NUT Carcinoma fighter), 8yo Grady(NUT Carcinoma fighter), and 18yo Issac (Brain tumor fighter). Thank you for coming, donating, helping, and participating. We were able to send over $2000 to each of the family and it's all because of you!! We are truly grateful for your support.
Skye, you still amaze me, you are forever my pride and joy and I am so happy to be your mommy.
Skye's 2nd Birthday in Heaven ～Blood Drive event～
Skye’s 2nd year heavenly anniversary celebration was filled with laughter, hugs, and some tears. It was a beautiful celebration of her life with her friends and family. It also marked the end of our first Skyestrong blood drive. Thank you to all who donated blood and please remember to continue donating!! Hopefully, by next year, we will have our own blood drive running in honor of Skye.
To celebrate, we shared stories, made bracelets for other kids fighting cancer, and decorated pots to plant seeds that will grow as time passes. It was a beautiful time and we are so grateful for everyone who was able to attend and those who continue to support us.
Interview with Joe
Thank you for watching our FB live with Joe Schwartz! “Surviving NUT carcinoma “ I pray and hope that this inspired you and it encouraged someone who are fighting cancer or has family members that are fighting cancer. My own family is also still dealing with cancer (my dad is currently fighting cancer !) and talking to Joe gave me so much hope. Yes cancer is terrible and I hate it, but there’s hope! There’s miracles! (In Jesus name! )
To bring awareness to this terrible cancer called NUT carcinoma and find a cure was Skye’s passion. I hope I made her proud and I will continue to make her legacy alive.
