St. Jude Country Music Marathon

Logan and I have decided to go ahead and get a jumpstart on our fundraising for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in honor of Wesson. As the process of becoming incorporated takes time, and while we work on officially becoming a foundation --- we have chosen to participate in one of the endurance events that St. Jude puts on in efforts to raise money.

We have committed ourselves to fundraising for the St. Jude Country Music Marathon this Spring on April 27th, 2013 in Nashville, TN. Our goal is to raise atleast $3,500 in memory of our sweet boy and his short battle with infant leukemia, and in honor of others like Wesson who are fighting today... and those that will be diagnosed in the future.

We ask that if you can donate even a dollar that you please do! We have been so overwhelmed over the past year with love, prayers, support and guidance from family members, friends, community and even strangers. Our family has had more support in the past year than a family could ask in a lifetime, and we are now striving for continued support and continued awareness... and even more funds. Not for ourselves, but for Wesson and the children that continue to be diagnosed with catastrophic illnesses each and everyday. And for the physicians and researchers that do not sleep at night because they want to make a difference...

And save lives.

There truly is no better place for your extra cash, or precious pennies to go than to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. There is never any inkling of doubt that the physicians, nurses, medical staff and other personnel pour their heart and souls into saving lives -- and the hospital cannot run without our efforts in raising funds and striving to make a difference. They do so much for the families fighting and waiting for a cure, and truly make it feel like a magical kingdom.

We are registered to run in the event this Spring, and hope that this is our way of making a difference and helping to change the future of not only infant leukemia, but other terminal cancers.

We hope that you can help us in our efforts to support this amazing place. If you would like to join Team Wesson or simply donate in his honor you can visit our page:

Wesson you continue to teach, to inspire, to prosper...and to live on in each one of us. We love you so much sweet boy....
