Cancer Sucks

Hug your kiddlettes close and be thankful for their health. My friend's cousin just lost her 4 year-old to cancer. If you or a family you know is facing a childhood cancer diagnosis, please direct them to Mira's Movement, a local organization whose mission is to provide informational and emotional support to families of a child diagnosed with cancer; dvocate for increased public and private funding for childhood cancer research and family support; and raise awareness of the prevalence and the impact of the disease.

BoatYard Grill's "Fill The Truck" donations to Hurricane Sandy victims Sunday

Looking for a way to help Sandy victims? One of the easiest ways is to text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief, which helps people affected.

But maybe you're like me and are also thinking, "I have have stuff here that I don't need that could help people so close but so far away." Well, the BoatYard and Ciao are helping with this.
