Thank you to the staff, and members of Bellevue Baptist Church of Nashville of Nashville for hosting the Cobb Family & #JuCanFoundation this weekend! It was an honor to share the #JuliaCobb journey through #EwingsSarcoma and to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of our 4,000 mile #WalkAcrossAmerica for #ChildhoodCancerAwareness. We met many new friends and partners.
The Cobb kids shared many stats about childhood cancer. Their voices still remain the strongest help in educating the public on the paltry 3.8% funding for childhood cancer research. We remain diligent in our cause to be a hopeful (but loud) voice of change.
As many of you know, Julia LOVED Mickey Mouse!! The pic (bottom right) was taken at Give Kids the World when we arrived for her Make-A-Wish trip to Disney World in 2013. We had another “not so hidden Mickey” moment last night. We call this a “Ju Wink.” A woman we had never met and who had also never heard our story, walked up to us and said, “I’m not sure why, but God told me to give Jaxi this Mickey Mouse that I’ve had for 27 years……..” ❤️
