The Addison Jo Blair Foundation wants to wish everyone a Happy New Year! We thank everyone for your support in 2013. The foundation continues to support the Addison Jo Blair Cancer Care Center at Kosair Children's Hospital. The foundation has also helped numerous families this past year with gas and food gift cards as well as care packages. The foundation gave a donation to CureSearch to help with pediatric cancer research in order to help find a cure to this horrible disease. Our annual Addison Jo Blair Memorial Scholarship was awarded at Central Hardin High School to Jacqueline Carver. The Addison Jo Blair Foundation has been extremely blessed by such wonderful support from all of you. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Our sweet Addison above is so very proud that her legacy continues to help the many other children battling the horrible disease called cancer! We hope and pray that a cure is found soon so that children and families do not have to go through the pain of dealing with this monster.
The foundation has started planning the 4th Annual Addison Jo Blair 5K which will take place on May 17th. Please mark your calendars now! :) There will be many more details to come soon.
The Addison Jo Blair Foundation recently delivered several boxes of toys to Kosair Children's Hospital to be handed out to patients on the Addison Jo Blair Cancer Center. These toys were collected by Creekside Elementary Schools BETA Club students, staff and parents as well as toys donated by Paige Westwood. The Creekside BETA Club held a toy drive in honor of September being Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Students created posters advertising this toy drive and there were many boxes filled with new toys to be given to patients at Kosair Children's Hospital battling cancer. We appreciate all the hard work and dedication that went into making this toy drive a success. We thank all the students, staff, and parents that made this toy drive a success. We also give a huge thank you to Paige Westwood who purchased toys and filled bags to be given to patients on the Addison Jo Blair Cancer Center at Kosair Children's Hospital. Many children benefited from the generosity displayed by everyone who donated these toys. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!
