We are coming up on the end of September which is also Cancer Awareness Month. It is a reminder that there are little warriors out there that need our support. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is focusing on raising funds and awareness on this very important issue. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped the overall push of cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since they opened 50 years ago. Think of the difference, they and we can make! There is a very special writer of The Next Family, Kelly Enders-Tharp , who has a son fighting the battle with cancer. Their family is very important to us and this issue of pediatric cancer is one we need to win and fast! In support of Kelly and her family and all of the other children out there, we created this video as a family. Please consider doing something to help Show Your Gold. Let’s show these kids that they are invincible!

With the passage of marriage equality last year, laws have been quickly changing across the United States. LGBT couples with or without children weren’t just given the right of marriage, they were provided new protections and benefits within their families.
