The Peter Powerhouse Foundation is improving the lives of children during cancer treatment, helping survivors to thrive. Their mission is to improve the lives of childhood cancer patients by providing donations to the facilities that treat them and to provide grants to researchers that will improve the lives of the childhood cancer survivor.
It's the second week of October and the back-to-school photos have long since been posted to everyone's Facebook accounts. But, in the households of of childhood cancer families that's not alway true. Sometimes these children are not well enough to start school with their classmates. That was the case for this little fighter. But, today this beautiful sight appeared in my feed. Sweet Norah has officially made it to her first day of second grade!
In the Peter Powerhouse office this calls for a celebration! So as is often the case my day took a few detours and I ended up at the party store and the Dairy Queen.
Ice cream cake makes a great after-school snack. It's such a pleasure to treat these children to a small surprise. We would have loved to see her face when she laid eyes on her surprise.
We hope you have a great year in the second grade, Norah! We'll keep you in our thoughts and prayers! Thank you for the picture, mom!
Tianna has recently started volunteering for us. She was looking for a way to serve God and help other children. Whenever a new bag of handmade hats appear on our porch we call on Tianna.
She places them in individual bags so they stay clean and fresh for the kids.
Look at all the hats she's bagged for us and she's hard at work preparing more. These are ready to be delivered to Children's Hospital of Phila and Nemours/ AI duPont Hospital for Children. We think Tianna does a great job!
