the red bandana


 

 

She wore a red bandana tied around her head

 

A bandana of hope is what they said.

 

The bandana was to hide the pain.

 

“ and losing her hair she felt so ashamed”.

 

But the bandana gave encouragement

 

To the others all around

 

For in this child love they had found.

 

On the red bandana was imprinted

 

LOVE , HOPE, AND FAITH

 

And their faith would open up the gate.

 

The gate to research to find the cure

 

So the pain – these children would not endure.

 

This child was diagnosed with a brain tumor

 

At twelve months of age.

 

Never realizing how her life would change.

 

But she always had a smile

 

Which would not go away, and with other children

 

In the chapel they would pray.

 

She had became like a star , big and bright.

 

And had became the “ pediatric brain tumors”

 

Guiding light.

 

She is one of many who struggle from day to day

 

In the hopes that research will find the way.

 

Every year thousands of children being diagnosed

 

With cancerous brain tumors

 

With a short time to live.

 

But with the doctors research

 

A longer time they could give.

 

Advancements are being found every day

 

We need your financial support and for you to pray.

 

All the children undergoing numerous surgeries

 

And chemo therapy

 

This is not the way it should be.

 

A five dollar donation is all we ask

 

That’s not much of a task.

 

Give all that you can possibly give

 

And help the beautiful children live.
