Maybe I should apologize for the double post this week, but the way I see it, if you follow all of her bad (non) adventures like the chemo, bone marrow and all that other crud, you should be okay with an extra dose of Delaney goodness to end the weekend.
I got an instant message from a friend on Facebook tonight to inform me that the middle school where she teaches is starting their “Pennies for Patients” fundraiser tomorrow. If you aren’t familiar with Pennies for Patients, it is a program where students bring in spare pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Anyway, my friend was letting me know that her class is going to be generously participating in honor of Delaney (Excuse me while I give A quick shout out to Mrs. Flores class at Fulton Middle School in Fountain Valley, CA. You all have a very cute six year old mustached girl in Colorado cheering for you!).
Anyway, I was sharing this instant message with my wife, and she reminded me of something that I thought was worth sharing with all of you. Right before her own leukemia diagnosis, Delaney’s class participated in Pennies for Patients. Delaney came home from school on the very first day that it was announced and emptied her piggy bank (and her old man’s poker jar) to give it all to Pennies for Patients because she desperately wanted to help those sick kids. That’s just how our little Laney Bug rolls!
