Check it out! Cancer Freeze 2009

Caleb Davidson, Cancer Freeze Organizer joins Donna Bell in-studio to discuss an upcoming fundraising event to help out a young Florida child battling cancer.

For more information and to learn how you can participate or donate, please visit cancerfreeze.webs.com or call (850) 978-3726.

Cancer Freeze 2009 will be held February 7, 2009 at Lake Jackson in Florala, Alabama. This will be the third annual fundraising event that began from a conversation between friends. In the past, the proceeds have gone to The American Cancer Society and Florala’s Relay for Life team; however this year will be a little different.

Julie-Layton Bryan is the five year old daughter of Brad and Stephanie Bryan of Florala. Julie is a beautiful little girl who loves to run and play and she loves the color pink. Julie is just like most other little girls her age except for the fact that Julie has been diagnosed with retinoblastoma in her left eye.

Retinoblastoma is a rapidly developing cancer which develops in the cells of the retina, the light sensitive cells of the eye. Presently, Julie and her family are required to travel to New York every three weeks for treatment. Friends have allowed the family to use sky miles to travel and a Private Angel Flight was provided for the first trip. They have also been able to occasionally stay at Ronald McDonald House while there. Even with all this help, expenses will be incurred and this is where Cancer Freeze comes in.

Please join us February 7, 2009 at 12:00 p.m. at Lake Jackson to take part in Cancer Freeze 2009.

A minimum donation of $20 will buy you the opportunity to ski, tube, wakeboard, or kneeboard. Participants this year will receive a Cancer Freeze t-shirt and silicone bracelet.

Previously, only participants and volunteers have received shirts, however this year shirts will be on sale for $15 and bracelets for $2. Hot coffee and chili will also be served for everyone on hand.

We are very fortunate to have Gary and Lynn Jones of Precision Image Photography taking photos of our event. Gary has 25 years experience and was the 2004 Photographer of the Montgomery Biscuits Class AA affiliate of the Tampa Bay Devil Ray Baseball team. He is also an active member of the Professional Photographers of America.

Gary has photographed local and national events such as the R+L Carriers Bowl game that was telecast live on ESPN where Troy University played Southern Miss in the Superdome in New Orleans. Gary compiled photos from last year’s event, set them to music and made a DVD that will also be on display.

Please feel free to use any of the following ways to seek more information about this wonderful event that will benefit this beautiful little girl.
