On August 17th, 2010 my best friend passed away from Leukemia. He was twelve years old. I took his death hard and the seventeenth is a very emotional day for me. Purple was Riley's favorite color. In order to keep his memory alive and spread his story, I'm pledging to wear purple for two months straight. My hoodie, my shirt, tank top, etc. I'll be wearing purple for two months and hoping people will do the same with me. Ever since his death, I've wanted to make a change in this world. I want to help stop cancer. Find a cure for it, raise money to stop it. I want to fight cancer. Being fifteen, there isn't much I can do, but I know I can do this and I will! Please support my pledge to help raise awareness about Cancer and Share Riley's story with you.
Pledge will begin August 31st and end November 2nd.
Wear Purple and Stand Up To Cancer!
