Spectrum of Small Hands Creating Hope

We are so so excited to be a part of an exciting fundraiser Small Hands Creating Hope for the American Cancer Society. Unfortunately most of us know someone who has been affected by cancer. In childhood, I heard about cancer first time when one of my favorite teacher's, 8 yr old kid got cancer. It was so hard to see him suffer and he died after a year.  Next hit was when I was in college, one of my dad's close friend was diagnosed with liver cancer. After that here and there I have heard of cancer affected people and survivors too. Recently we heard about our property owner being diagnosed with Cancer. He is very active, kind person and we felt very sad for him.

When we hear about cancer it passes lot of negative thoughts, Hope is the Positive Radiance and to keep moving in Life. Do check out the amazing story of MaryAnne at Mama Smiles! She was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 22 months and this year celebrating 30 years of being cancer free.  Maryanne has joined hands with over 40 bloggers to produce the Small Hands Creating hope project. Each Blogger worked with their children or students to create a craft that could be made by or for someone facing cancer. MaryAnne at Mama Smiles has compiled the projects into an ebook.
