“Your kid has cancer...”

We all know that the cares of life and raising children can be difficult. Your child having a life-threatening disease makes the parenting journey much more difficult to say the least. “Your kid has cancer” - these are the words a parent should never have to hear. Yet, in realty, millions are faced with that statement. 

However, a statement that numerous cancer stricken families are hearing more and more is “families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food because all a family should worry about is helping their child live” (stjude.org) We like that statement much better!

One of our models is helping make this statement possible! My friend Angela has been making a difference in many lives going on 5 years. She runs from Mattoon to Peoria in Illinois (150 miles). She prepares physically all year long and inspires many to give financially. 

Thousands of dollars have been raised for an awesome program and Angela has been a great voice for the cause. Many of our customers get to see her beauty in pictures on our website, but I am blessed to see the beauty in her heart. 

Modest Direct is thankful for people like Angela and for programs like St. Jude. We are donating financially and encourage you to do the same! 

Mid you can not give financially at this time, share this blog, comment with an emoji or words of support to show St. Jude how many people support this great cause!
