Those of you who know me can understand why this touched me so much.

A mother who is dying of breast cancer has created a book drive for cancer patients and their families called "Light One Little Candle".
Go here to read more about it.

I don't have kids myself, but I do, very much want kids of my own some day. And I cannot imagine being in Joelle's situation. Would I have the strength to do what she's doing? Would I have ever imagined myself capable of creating the legacy she's created?

I want to help! What can I do? Whatever I could afford to give would seem so insignificant. But if I could give comfort to one child in the face of such a tragedy...especially through books, which are my passion...then I would feel like I have done something.
