Going Gold for Silas

Yesterday, I read an article about a brave young boy named Silas who lives in eastern Georgia and has a disease that cannot be cured. You can read the full article here. Silas is 4-years old and has Hepatoblastoma, a rare liver cancer. He has been told he only has a few days to live and his one wish? To have people, everywhere, paint their nails gold in awareness for childhood cancer. So I'm going gold for Silas and I hope you will too!

You can submit your Going Gold for Silas nail photos here or send them to photos@11alive.com. Silas' story is not the only one I read yesterday. Through the Praying for Silas Facebook page I learned about Adain, Harlee, and Micah. Let's show Silas, Adain, Harlee, Micah and all of the other children fighting childhood cancer, that they do not fight alone!

Other ways to show support for Silas & :




Micah (right)

A simple Facebook like could brighten these kids' day and show them that just one more person out there cares. Feel free to add links to other pages in the comments below, we need to spread support and love to as many children as we can.

This seriously hits home for me on a personal level. I used to work in both the Oncology & Pediatric wings of my local hospital and have work with some wonderful kids. As many of you know, I am also the mother of three beautiful girls, ages 13, 10, and 3. My heart aches for these families and what they are going through.

Much love to you all, The Dragon Lady
