Leukemia awareness?

Host a St. Baldrick's event. They are the number one organization that raises money for childhood cancer and awareness. The events are awesome, you should check out their website. I'm 18, and I was first diagnosed with Stage IV Bilateral Anaplastic Wilm's Tumor in March of 1995. Two months before my 6th birthday. I have relapsed twice, and I am currently being treated for my cancer for the third time. More awareness would be awesome and the St. Baldrick's events are soooooooo much fun!
