Today at school, I got a game called Bulldawgopoly (like monopoly). Teachers were given them to give to one special student. When I went into my Photography class I noticed my teacher hadn’t given hers away yet. Another student and I admired it at the beginning of the class. Later in the period, I talked to the teacher about it and told her I really liked it. She is like “I am going to give it to you just don’t show it to the kids in the class, get it before you leave.”
As I left class early I grabbed it. I went to my next class but the door was locked so I sat on the floor admiring the game. I noticed a story on the back and read it. It talked about a girl who found out she had an inoperable brain tumor called ganglioglioma on May 19, 2011 at 15 years old. The parents searched for a cure and found The Burzynski clinic. It was starting trials that had a 70% success in stopping the growth ot reducing all types of cancers. After only having less than a 1% chance of living 5 years, her parents pursued the clinic. The cost was an issue though, insurance only covers a small portion of the $8000 a month cost. That is when the ideal for Bulldawgopoly came in. 100% of the sales of this game go directly towards Kassidy’s cancer treatments. How amazing that they are doing this for her.
