September 21: Local Press and International Fame

This morning, Tillery is in the local Norwood/Powell Shopper News in the Knoxville News Sentinel. This month, an article about Tillery also ran in Motherhood Magazine, the top parents magazine in Singapore. That's right, Singapore! Her story is international!

You know what I wish though? I wish no one knew her name. I wish we could be an off the radar family. I wish we could be so boring that no one wanted to do a story on us.

That said, we have a story to tell and we will gladly shout it from the rooftops. We have watched children suffer and we have watched children lose their lives to this horrible disease and we are DONE! Local news, national news, international news...we will take it all if it raises awareness and someone, somewhere joins our cause. We want to stop having reasons to fill September with facts. We want to stop having friends with sad stories to tell you about. We want to stop fundraising. But we can't.

Til every kid gets to grow up.
Til every parent gets peace.
Til every family is safe.
Til there's a cure.

Please consider donating. Our donations have lagged but the diagnosing hasn't. Let's change the story.
