Noah’s Bandage Project

A few weeks ago I received a powerful email from a follow blogger – Brittany at Just Another Day in Paradise.  She reached out to several bloggers to come together and support Noah’s Bandage Project and raise awareness for Childhood Cancer.

From American Cancer Society

Childhood cancers make up less than 1% of all cancers diagnosed each year. About 10,380 children in the United States under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer in 2016. Childhood cancer rates have been rising slightly for the past few decades.

Because of major treatment advances in recent decades, more than 80% of children with cancer now survive 5 years or more. Overall, this is a huge increase since the mid-1970s, when the 5-year survival rate was about 58%. Still, survival rates vary depending on the type of cancer and other factors. The survival rates for a specific type of childhood cancer can be found in our information on that specific cancer type.

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in children aged 1 to 14 (after accidents). About 1,250 children younger than 15 years old are expected to die from cancer in 2016.

We bought several boxes of fun bandaids.  I hope these bandaids bring some smiles to children that are fighting childhood cancer.

If you would like to help here is more information about Noah’s Bandage Project…

  • Bandaids cannot be sent directly to hospitals, as they are hospital supplies, so funneling them through NBP is the way to go!
  • Monetary donations are also always welcome – the Wilson’s are working to increase the lack of funding there is nationwide for pediatric research (only 4% currently!!!).  So far, they have raised $100K and that number continues to grow (donations can be made on their website:www.noahsbandageproject.com)
  • If you’d like to send bandaids to them, here is the PO address where they collect them:
    • Noah’s Bandage Project
      119 N Parker Street Suite 110
      Olathe, KS 66061
