Support Team Roxie.

If you’ve been anywhere on my facebook page, you have heard of Roxie’s story.  This photograph below was taken during Walker’s newborn session when he was just five days new.  Following this session, parents Nick & Holly found themselves on Children’s Hospital’s oncology floor with their 3 year old daughter, Roxie. While waiting for a biopsy on Roxie’s tumor, Walker stopped breathing and had to undergo emergency open heart surgery at 2 weeks old. With Walker recovering in the NICU, Nick & Holly were hit with Roxie’s diagnosis, Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma with MYCN amplification, a very rare form of cancer that occurs in approximately 1 in 100,000 children.

Roxie will soon be headed back to the hospital for round 5 of her chemo treatments.  Roxie’s mom keeps everyone to date with Roxie’s progress here:  http://teamroxie.weebly.com/.  Not only is Holly a phenomenal writer but, as you will see from her blog, she’s one of the most amazing woman and mom I’ve ever met.

“Often after I put up a post on the Team Roxie site parents will share how blessed they are to have healthy children.  I want you all to know that I feel no less blessed to have an unhealthy one!  Every day we have too many blessings to count and Roxie is definitely one of them.”  [Holly Schopp]

So what can YOU do?  Well to start with, head over to Five Guys Burgers and Fries this coming Monday… I’ll be there with my little  ones around lunch time!  10% of the total sales will be donated to Team Roxie and Grand Slam Sports will be auctioning off unique sports experiences, tickets, memorabilia and more.

{I felt so lucky that I got to spend an hour on Christmas Day with this family…}

What else can you do?  You can purchase your very own Team Roxie shirt here:  http://teamroxie.weebly.com/team-roxie-tshirts.html.  100% of the profits go to The Schopp Family Fund!  Plus, Holly says that Roxie LOVES seeing people wear the shirt and see her name!

 

Lastly, you can head over to http://carecalendar.org/.  Enter login 95627 and password 4333.  You can see what nights the family is in need of dinners… and it can be as simple and easy as providing a gift card to one of their favorite restaurants.

Every little bit helps.  

“This is the crazy we signed up for.”   {Holly Schopp, http://teamroxie.weebly.com/}

I hope to see many of you on Monday!!
