THE HOW AND THE WHY?!

Well it's that time of year again where I go out and get things ready for the Annual Dino Doozer Masquerade Ball. A lot of people ask me how and why I started this foundation. Well this is the how and the why:
    Sherod (my son is reason why) I started this foundation. It all started with a diagnosis of Neurofibromatosis when he was 3 months old and then his diagnosis  of cancer back on Aug. 4, 2008. I was told my son had cancer. Then as the weeks went by the cancer turned out to be more than what the Dr.'s expected.....and us for that matter. How we went from your son has Cancer to I'm sorry but your sons Cancer is very rare and we do not have a cure, but we will still try to do what we can, is very hard for any parent to swallow.
    So because of his medical expenses we started raising money to help us get through those tough times. Then in Dec. of 2009 a few weeks before he passed away, he asked me to continue helping families and kids affected by this monster known best as cancer and  NF. We had several conversations over the next few weeks on how we can raise money. He knew he had a few small life insurance policy's and asked that I donate that to the Foundation until we can start raising money on our own to help those families in need. I also had to promise that I would send as many kids with NF to Camp NewFriends in Virginia. That was the same camp that he went to and thought all kids with NF should go to that camp.  
  So with his kind heart and his last words and as a mother keeping her promise that is exactly what I did. I put every last dime into the foundation just like he asked.
 My family was very supportive of this and to this day I will continue to honor his wish to help those kids and families in need with the help, love and support of my family and dear friends.  
  I think if Sherod could talk to me right now he would be so proud of where we are today with the Foundation and how far we have come. It's not easy asking others to help keep your son's memory and dreams alive.  But every day I get up and breath in and out and think today is new day and I'm going to tell someone about the Dino Doozer Foundation and what we stand for and who we stand next to and fight.
  So know that you know the how and the why.....why don't you tell someone about Dino Doozer.
