Can I just let it out?!? I don't know if you guys can handle it but it's oh so true. Since Keegan was diagnosed I have written a couple of news stations, our local paper at home, The Ellen Show, and Hoda and Kathy Lee. I was trying to get the word out about childhood cancer and/or Brain Cancer is such small babies. It is a growing issue that I feel needs more attention and research.
SO....here is my BEEF (no not the cow) NO.ONE.HAS.WANTED.TO.PICK.UP.THE.STORY! They would rather talk about how many meth labs are busted on a given weekend or how a mother is now in jail for neglect after they found her toddler playing in a home filled with trash and no running water. While some of these things do need attention, I feel that our story (although sad at times, I know) is one of hope. One of an online community and people around the country coming together for the good of our family. We have had such response from people saying they are praying for us, sending us a crib medal, prayer shawl, and other encouraging items. I don't understand our media.
I recently contacted 3 local news stations, 3 national news stations, our newspaper, and 3 radio stations. I need help getting the word out about a fundraiser that dear friends and family are taking the time to put together for us before the holiday season. Its sort of a craft fair and sorta an exhibition for people that sell things like scentsy and pampered chef-it's called Krafting for Keegan and is coming up very soon, November 13th. I have only received 2 responses to date and I did this emailing at the bargaining of the week. Both were from radio stations. Which I am so blessed they even responded but come on people, would it hurt so much to do a story on an inspiring little boy who has known nothing but to fight for his life?
It's okay to do stories about Iraq, flooding, and loss of life due to mass homicides but REALLY come on Media, snap out of it, let's give the people of America a story of substance, a story of real life miracles, and the love of people both near a far.....is that so hard?
