Thanks to all of you who came out to support the Marisa Fund on last Thanksgiving morning!  We are grateful for all the support and donations.  We hope the day will come soon when we find that cure for pediatric cancers; thanks for getting us that much closer!!

Marisa would have been 34 this coming year, had she lived... let's make sure that all children who suffer from pediatric cancer get a chance to celebrate every birthday!  Donations are always welcomed!!
