As crazy as it is, we will be participating in TWO events in the same day this month. On the morning of March 26th, we will be a part of the Fun Walk at the Race for Wishes, benefiting The Make A Wish Foundation of North Texas. That afternoon, Chance will be SHAVING HIS HEAD to benefit The St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
What makes perfect sense about it is that we are getting the chance to honor Angel Alexa at BOTH events…..what could be more right than that!!??
Our family was blessed to meet, get to know, and fall in love with the Aigner’s back in 2007. They are an amazing, beautiful, strong family that continues to inspire us all. Warrior Alexa fought a courageous battle, with her family, against Neuroblastoma. Along the way they touched so many, and became a very special part of our lives. Alexa earned her angel wings in June 2008. Our hearts will never be the same without her.

We met the Aigner’s through the Make A Wish Foundation of North Texas, an organization that means so very much to us, as it does them. So honoring Alexa while supporting such an amazing organization just makes so much sense. Madison had the idea, and she & Abby have worked hard to get ideas together on how to honor this special little girl that day. This organization has touched so many family’s lives, not the least of which is ours & Alexa’s.
We would love for you to join us that morning to walk in honor of Princess Alexa. WEAR PINK & YOUR TIARA’S!!! If you cannot make it out, we would so appreciate a donation to help us towards our goal. Just click on the link above to go directly to our team page.

We were honored to be able to attend our first St. Baldrick’s event to watch the handsome Zach shave his head for the first time in 2008. As you can see, Miss Alexa could not have been prouder of her Daddy!!! St. Baldrick’s is an amazing organization raising funds for childhood cancer. Only the US government provides more funds for research!!!

As heart breaking as it was, we were blessed to again be there to see Zach shave his head in 2009. While there that day, Chance with all his hair, decided that he would not cut his hair for the following year so that he could shave his head in honor of Alexa in 2010.

The boy’s hair was already unruly and long to start with, and it grew and grew over the next year. And when the day came, he had himself a HEAD FULL of hair for sure.
So much hair in fact, that he had enough to donate it to Locks For Love!! Yes folks, that’s TEN inches of hair!!!!

Chance worked hard to raise money, exceeding his goal, and gave up all that hair willingly in honor of a special little girl, alongside her Dad and fellow teammates on Team Cancer Sucks!!

Thank you Zach for giving Chance this opportunity to do something…to make a difference….for Alexa, for the other kiddo’s we’ve known and lost to cancer, and for those still fighting the good fight.
Another year of no hair cuts and Chance has a head full of hair again…..not quite as much as last year, but still a lot!! Join us to see this special young man shave his head again!!!
We sincerely hope to see you all there!!! If not though, please do consider making a donation and please SHARE with others. Help us exceed the goals we have set!!!
Angel Alexa…..you are ALWAYS in our hearts!!!
