Asking for help…

21 Sep

Ugh…Someone is always asking for some sort of charity donation right? I went to the grocery store yesterday hoping to buy a couple of things and ended up spending 10 dollars on stale popcorn for a Cub Scout troop. 10 bucks!  It was a couple handfuls of popcorn and that was it!  In the end, the popcorn was ok, but the kid’s smile was priceless; he finally sold a bag!

So here’s my ask.  If you like and enjoy these articles, I would like to ask you for help.  It’s not for me, but for a young boy.  I don’t know him personally, but know his story. This boy has an inoperable brain tumor.  He’s 11. I remember when I was 11 all I thought about was playing and being a kid. Unfortunately, to no fault of his own, being a regular kid is tough.

He became associated with the make-a wish foundation.  This foundation grants kids who are seriously ill with one wish.  It could be whatever they want (It’s truly a remarkable organization).  99.9% of the time the wish is to meet a celebrity or a sports hero.  His wish was to be a priest for a day.  Again, I don’t know him, but going back to when I was a kid the last thing I would’ve wished for was to be a priest. I would’ve met George Brett! (baseball player)  I think this shows his maturity, his character, and the way his parents raised him.

One thing we can all agree, regardless of circumstance, religion, political views, or anything else, cancer affects us all.  Another thing  we can all agree is to treat cancer is not only draining for the patient, it is draining financially.

I feel for Brett’s parents and for any parent that has to witness their child go through such hardship.  The last thing a parent should worry about is the medical cost.

Here’s my ask, please go to and donate ten dollars.  300 of you go to a day to read my FREE articles.  I know you’re out there!  Just claim you went out and had coffee with SPLA Man and expense it.

Thank you for reading and thank you in advance for helping Brett.
