“According to the journal acute lymphoblastic leukemia, about 2.85 million US children under 18 are living with a parent with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.”
Sadly, this is a subject many of us know all to well. I don’t know a single person who doesn’t have a story about a family member, a friend or a co-worker effected by a life-threatening illness like acute lymphoblastic leukemia. One story in particular was the driving force behind Treasured Time’s creation. Here’s my story….
A very good friend of mine was happily married with three beautiful children. We met because our kids went to school together. I was surprised when I learned one of their children had been battling ALL acute lymphoblastic leukemia but thankfully, was in remission. Then the walls came crashing down. Her husband was diagnosed with Melanoma.
When my friend told me the devastating news that her husband was terminal, I set out to help them. I organized a food chain and enlisted volunteers for support. I watched as she struggled to maintain her children’s lives while caring for the man she loved and preparing herself for what was to come. I was never able to do as much as I wanted to do before he passed away.
Treasured Time, Inc. was born shortly after. I realized the thing this strong and courageous family holds onto the most is their happy memories. Treasured Time was created to Give the Gift of Moments. Creating lasting memories by granting the wishes of parents with life threatening illnesses.
Join our cause and help support these amazing yet struggling families. Together, we can make a difference and help pass on a legacy, a happy memory…. a moment.
