Why the Yellow Ribbon?

On April 2, 2012, the Buckels' 12 year-old daughter Grace was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a bone cancer. From that day their family’s lives were changed forever, and they became immediately immersed in the world of childhood cancer, a world where too many children are affected and too many are lost.  By the grace of God, Grace remains cancer free, and we are thankful everyday.

When David started his company just two short months after Grace’s diagnosis, he promised himself and Grace that he would find a way to use the business to help raise awareness for Childhood Cancer.  And now, he is fulfilling that promise.  Here are the facts:

While you may find it hard to believe that our government and largest cancer charity devote very little money to our children, it is true.  And while it may seem that the “low” incidence of childhood cancer in relation to adult cancers justifies this disparity, the fact is that the average age of a child diagnosed with cancer is just 6 years old.  That means that a child who survives treatment could have a lifetime of dealing with all of the problems associated with “the cure”.  And since our children continue to not be a priority, it is left up to private organizations to raise money and conduct vital research needed to find a cure.    

David hopes to raise awareness for the difficulties faced by children with cancer. Below are listed some organizations that do great work toward finding a cure for this awful disease.  You can find more information about childhood cancer on their websites:
