Give Mom flowers and help a great organization

Thursday, April 29, 2010 Leave a Comment

Every mom loves to get flowers. Even your mother-in-law, who insists she doesn't need a big fuss for Mother's Day.

This year, you can give Mom flowers and help a great charity out at the same time.


Z Foundation helps families with children undergoing cancer treatments. Many families struggle financially with cancer treatments -- insurance or not -- and a Stapleton mom's experience with breast cancer inspired her to create this organization for families going through the same thing.

When you order flowers through Lehrer's Flowers "Flowers for a Cause" at www.thinkflowers.com/zfoundation, Lehrer's will donate $5 to the Foundation.

And you can donate directly here.

"Did you know that pediatric cancer is the number one disease killer in the U.S. of children under the age of 18? In fact, it kills more children than asthma, AIDS, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis combined. Unfortunately, pediatric cancer receives a very small percentage of the National Cancer Institute’s $4.8 billion annual budget and almost no research and development dollars from pharmaceutical companies. And there are even fewer resources to help financially support the families dealing with a childhood cancer. Why should a family have to choose between putting food on the table or paying for a treatment that might save their child’s life?"
