This is the story of our little girls journey of faith. Delainey has taken us along with her and we have learned a lot. She has taught us about faith, hope, love, prayer, trust, joy and perseverance. Never had I thought I would learn so much from anyone, especially a 2 year old. She is a fiesty little girl who was diagnosed with Synovial Cell Sarcoma at 17 months old and has since kicked cancer out of her life, hopefully for good.
Delainey (and our family) have been chosen along with 5 other families to be a HERO family for Children's Miracle Network-Gundersen. These heroes are the face and voice of CMN for 1 year. She will have her own trading card, poster, button, flyer, etc.
Our family will be out and about at various events over the next year promoting CMN, fundraising for CMN, telling D's story and making it known how wonderful CMN is and how they truly do make a difference!!! We are very excited to be apart of this. Our familys Culver's have been partners with CMN for years now and we have always been excited to help raise funds for them, but since D was diagnosed it became so much more personal.
This will be a very emotional, powerful and wonderful experience for our family and we cannot wait to begin. We are excited for the people we will meet and the life-changing lessons the kids (and us!) will experience along the way. We are excited to raise as much money as possible for Team Delainey!!!! We'll keep you all posted with more info as we get it :)
Next week we will take her in for her "set-up". Photo shoots, video shoots, telling her story, etc. Then her first official day is July 31, we will see all of her promo items and get to meet the other families.
Our little girl will be every where! And we couldn't think of anyone who could do this better than her, she is only 2 but has taught us and countless others the real meaning of faith, hope, strength and JOY!!
