Getting the Word out !

It's been a long road

Well son .... we did it!!!! This years Masquerade Ball was a huge success. I feel we are reaching more and more people each year and in turn we are able to help out more in our communitie. This year we were SOLD OUT!!!! I can't tell you how good that feels to say that.
   A wonderful man by the name of Scott Mathews made this amazing metal sculpture of Dino Doozer to hang locks on. I wish you could have seen it..... you would love it. Right now we are selling locks with little metal hearts to hang on it in memory of loved ones lost.

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.

A message from the Dino Doozer Foundation

As I read the words from another Mother who is loosing her son to NF and Childhood Cancer I am reminded once again the pain that a parent goes through. My heart just breaks every time I hear about another child lost to Cancer. I have vowed along with the rest of the Board Members of the Dino Doozer Foundation that for every child who comes through this Foundation and earns there Angel wings we will purchase a Star in there Honor for there parents.
     A lot of people recognize Childhood Cancer Awareness during the month of Sept.

Childhood Cancer is NOT RARE BUT THE CURE IS SO LETS FIND IT!!!

Below I have copied the letter I sent to Andrew Becker. He is the Media Relation for the American Cancer Society.
 
 
       Childhood Cancer is NOT RARE...THE CURE IS 
    
Dear Mr. Andrew Becker,
   
                I am writing to you to let you know that I am or was a mother of 3 beautiful children at one time. I lost my son to Childhood Cancer

Camp NewFriends

Well Son I think you would be very proud of what the Foundation has been doing. We have been growing...slowly but we have been growing just like you wished.
  I was out to lunch with some of the girls from the office a few weeks ago. We walked in to take our seat and noticed a  was a group of Ladies from the Red Hat Society sitting behind us. I turned to check out some of the hats and noticed a woman who seemed to have plexiform neurofibromas on the outside of her skin. I thought to myself.
