Today I want to get a little more personal with you girls...

One of my husband's best friends {Alex} was recently diagnosed with leukemia. It obviously came as quite a shock to everyone. Jake & Alex grew up together playing sports and have remained friends even as the military has moved us around the country. We have made trips to Kansas City {he is a dental student there} to visit him & his wife Jamie. We also always make plans to hang out when we are all home for the holidays! Alex has spent the last several weeks in the hospital undergoing intense chemotherapy treatments. {You can keep up with the story here} As you might imagine, those hospital bills start to rack up a hefty cost. 

Jake & another close friend have decided to host an event, a #BigAlStrong fundraiser to help his family combat these costs. They will be raffling off prizes, hosting a poker tournament & having a silent auction. If you are in the Southwest Missouri area, check out the event page here to get more information! Even if you are elsewhere in this world & feel like you might want to help out, you can purchase one of these #BigAlStrong wristbands. To represent the leukemia fight, they are orange and have the words "Hope. Love. Cure." on one side with "#BigAlStrong" on the other. They are being sold for $3 each or 2 for $5. I would be forever grateful if you girls could help out this cause in a small way! Please email me at thestyledblonde@hotmail.com to get your bracelets.

Alex is such a great guy & we hope to raise enough money so that finances can be the last of their worries while they are trying to fight this disease. ANY help that you can offer would be SO. GREATLY. APPRECIATED. 

Thanks for listening :)
