Wear Your Care

At Max's school where he attends first grade - Solana Highlands - Max's teacher Lisa Sturt has put together a fundraiser that ties in with the school's 6 Pillars of Caring program and September's Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Orange reminder bracelets embossed with LIVE LIFE TO THE MAX! are being made available for a donation of $5 - the proceeds of which are being donated to Magic Water. The goal is that every single student at Solana Highlands will wear their care, and that they would share this Pillar of Caring with everyone they know.

Obviously this is a tremendously humbling experience. Our school community has opened up in ways that are unimaginable. Lisa Sturt, Max's teacher, is just INCREDIBLE. Along with his kindergarden teacher Debbie Weitz (who recommended Lisa for Max's 1st grade teacher), we feel extraordinarily lucky to have two such caring, energetic and empathetic teachers for Max.

Reading this post gave me the chills. What a wonderful woman it sounds like you have found for Max's first grade experience. That is so very awesome.

I have followed Max's story for a while now. I will continue to pray for you and your family.
