A Worthwhile Cause

| Filed under: Inspiration


CLICK HERE to read up and donate to a very worthwhile cause!

"The Pablove Foundation is named after Pablo Castelaz, the son of Jo Ann Thrailkill and Jeff Castelaz, and the little brother of Grady Gallagher. On May 17, 2008, Pablo was diagnosed with bilateral Wilms’ Tumor, a rare form of children’s cancer. The cancer appeared out of nowhere, with no warning signs in Pablo’s general demeanor or health. He underwent treatment at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. On June 27, 2009, Pablo’s individual fight with cancer ended. But we fight on in his name, with the spirit of love that Pablo embodied and inspired.

Every year, the Pablove Foundation gives money to improve the lives of children with cancer, at both a national level as well as a local level here in Los Angeles. As we carry out our mission, we wave a flag for anyone to see. On it are these words: Kids get cancer too. They need your help. It’s not somebody else’s problem."

    This post makes me take a step back from all the petty hollywood gossip and connect with life again.
    Being aware of children being taken much too early from this life plucks people right out of ignorant bliss and is a sad reminder of how delicate and fleeting life is.

    i think it's the saddest thing we children have to suffer.

    I lost my sister at age 5 to a single Wilm's tumor. I heard it's curable now. But knowing what my parents and my sister went through, I'm very concerned for the strength of families during treatment.

    My four year old son had Wilms' and has relapsed twice. At one time, he was temporarily paralyzed because the cancer spread to his spine. He is now 16 months off-treatment and doing fine but he's had to go through hell with 3 different treatment plans (most recently high-dose chemo and a stem cell transplant). I hope he is cured now, but there is no guarantee. I want that guarantee. He needs that cure, a gentler cure. No child should have to suffer what he has gone through. No family should have to deal with the loss of their child. I feel for Pablo's family and so many others, like Pablo's.
