As some of you may know, on July 1st, Kyra Roach (one of our former club players) was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, bone cancer in her left knee. Kyra has been receiving chemotherapy and will until the end of September or early October when she will receive a total knee replacement. After that, she will recover from the surgery and receive additional chemotherapy, possibly until May of 2014. Kyra's friends in Chicago developed the idea of selling bracelets to show support for Kyra as well as raise awareness and money for the hospital that is treating her. We thought it was such a great idea and wanted to extend the idea to Colorado.
The Hodge Family will have an Open House, Today Sunday, September 15th from 4-8.p.m. People can stop by, pick up their bracelets and take a quick picture with their family wearing the bracelets. The pictures will be uploaded to a new Facebook community page, created today called "Hope 4 Kyra". This is so that Kyra and the family can see all the support and people wearing the bracelets in Colorado. As for the cost of the bracelets we will be asking for a donation of $3. If you would like to donate more money, please feel free. The money, as per Kyra's request, will go to two places, 50% of the proceeds will go to Childhood Cancer Research and 50% to Child Life Services at Comers Children's Hospital where Kyra is being treated.
If you are unable to attend the Open House, and would still like to get a bracelet, please let me know and we will get you one.
