Childhood cancer awarness month

Hello Everyone

September is childhood cancer awareness month and i urge you to please support any cause you possibly can to create awareness, to fund research, to support and pray for all the families out there, the angels, warriors and survivors

To honor them, i will be feauturing some of our friends from around the world, one each day of September , so that you can get to learn and love them and realise how important it is for us to find a cure, to read stories of hope and discover the legacy heroes have left behind for us to learn from

What i can urge you to support this month is The All Hands On Dec Friends Busy Boxes project - please collect 2l ice cream containers, pencils, crayons, paper, stickers, scissors, ribbon - basically anything that can be used for arts and crafts. These are going to be put together in the most beautiful way and distributed to kids in oncology wards around South Africa - you are welcome to contact me for more details, i know this is going to be a great success!

God Bless, lots of love, please continue the prayers for Deqlan and for all our friends around the world fighting cancer
Mark Samm Deqlan Logan

FOR I KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU, DECLARES THE LORD, PLANS TO PROSPER YOU AND NOT TO HARM YOU, PLANS TO GIVE YOU HOPE AND A FUTURE

To Our Darling and Special Samm,

This is, once again, an exceptional example of your unique and beautiful personality to want to utilize to maximum impact, the opportunity to raise awareness during September - Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Your idea to use each and every day of the month to pay tribute to a significant little hero or heroine, is wonderful and amazing and such an excellent way to enable your readers and followers to come "face to face" with the realities of childhood cancer - the heartache, the tragedies but also the victories !!!! The stories are REAL, the photographs, genuine and I know the manner in which you will relate every story, will be done with the greatest sensitivity and with the greatest love, which has become the hallmark of your tributes at any given time.

This gesture truly reflects your inherent beauty, grace, dignity, generosity, understanding, wisdom, empathy, truth, care, support, faith, hope and love which you have invested in this cause. The incredible and challenging journey that you and Mark have experienced with our precious Deqlan is the story of a miracle, which unfolded before your very eyes. This has been and forever will be faith in action, believing in His promises and claiming the victory about which He has assured you.

May you be abundantly blessed with every grace from God, His healing Saviour Son, Jesus and the Holy spirit. You certainly are, in turn, a precious blessing to others and have, at many times, acted as the very "lifeline" to which many have clung in their despair, their fear, their torture but also their triumphs. This special "task" is NOT an easy one but you have, together with your unwavering faith, immovable hope and immeasurale belief in and love for the Lord, every single quality required to make a powerful and significant difference in these and other lives which you touch in an extraordinary and unforgettable way, on a daily basis. You are truly an exceptional woman on every level, and in every role, including that of mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend. I, as your Mother, could NOT be more proud of you, nor could I love you MORE than I do. I salute you, darling Samm. Thank you for the precious "gift" you are in my life and in the lives of so many others.

All my love,

Mom
