Noah's Bandage Project

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and a brave little boy here in Kansas City started his own charity in 2014 after being diagnosed with cancer. Noah's Bandage Project aims at collecting fun, colorful bandaids for kids in the hospital receiving treatments as well as raising funds for pediatric cancer research. 

I was shocked to learn that only 4% of cancer research funds go towards finding a cure for pediatric cancer. The money raised through Noah's Bandage Project goes directly towards fighting that fight. Earlier this month, NBP presented a check for $100,000 to Children's Mercy Hospital! How amazing is that? 

When Brittany emailed a group of local bloggers {which turned into a NATIONAL group of bloggers!} about collecting bandaids for NBP, I couldn't get on board fast enough. This was the perfect opportunity to get the girls involved and have them help pick out their favorite bandaids to send to the kiddos in the hospital.

We wrote a short note and Gracyn colored a picture in hopes of brightening their day a little bit. It was really such an easy and wonderful way to help a greater cause.

If you'd like to contribute, grab the image below and post to social media to help raise awareness for Noah's Bandage Project and childhood cancer. Better yet, click HERE to find ways to donate.

Sadly, Noah passed away in June 2015. As a mom, imagining that your kids could possibly get sick is hard enough. I cannot even begin to understand what Noah's family and other families like them must be going though as they sit and watch their kids fight this horrible disease. It would be brutal and it completely breaks my heart. By participating in this small way, my family can help honor Noah's legacy.

  1. How sweet that they made cards! Totally meant to do that, but the thought escaped me before I delivered the bandaids to Brittany!
