“Kids Helping Kids Fight Cancer™”
It was SO cool to receive the letter below from 6 year old, Henry Sullivan. Man, this is what it’s all about. Little kids giving up their “share money” to help fight childhood cancer. It’s kids like Henry that keep me going. Henry has received national recognition as AOL News picked up the story when they saw it on our Instagram account. Enclosed with Henry’s nice letter was $11!
