Fundraiser for The Stennis Foundation

Do you have old cell phones - that no one is using - lying around the house? If so, please consider sending them to The Stennis Foundation! We are sponsoring a cell phone drive, to raise funds for research. The Stennis Foundation currently supports the Gene Therapy research project at San Raffaele Institute in Milan, Italy, and we would like to help further this project. People's lives are depending on this research.

Please send your phones today! You can send your phones to:

The Stennis Foundation
PO Box 30065
Amarillo, TX 79120

If you have questions, please call (806)355-5254.

Please pass this on to all your friends! We want all the old cell phones we can get!!

That's the only word that describes the wonderful new website! Please go check it out... A very special thanks to Rocky, Phillip, and Kyle, who made it happen! The graphics, the layout, everything about the site is just incredible. I am so excited about this site. The guys left some things about the old site in place...this blog, which I will now update on a regular basis, and the guestbook! So if you go by the site, please, please sign the guestbook!

We extend our sympathies today to the Hancock family. Almost two years ago, their 25-year old son, Lane, died from transplant complications, while being treated for Adrenoleukodystrophy. Yesterday, Mike Hancock died, leaving behind Diane and Stuart. Please keep Diane and Stuart in your prayers, as the other half of their family is in heaven. Our hearts grieve with them.

Just a note to ask you to please keep all of the Leukodystrophies families in your prayers...there are so many...some with MLD, some with ALD, some with Krabbe's, some with PMD, some with Tay-Sachs, which really isn't a Leukodystrophy, but a Lysosomal Storage disorder; and some with unnamed Leukodystrophies. When you get right down to it, these diseases are all insidious, and a cure must be found for them. Please consider a gift to The Stennis Foundation today.

The Stennis Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so your gifts are tax-deductible. Please give with confidence, knowing you are partnering with us in forcefully advancing toward a cure for these horrible diseases.

God Bless!
