A Special Blog

2013 March 12

Today’s blog is a little different – it’s a short personal story and a request that you follow this link to read an entry posted on another site.


Approximately seven weeks ago, the son of one of my really close friends was diagnosed with cancer.  Peyton is 13-years old and has an aggressive form of cancer.  I’m very close with his parents, Jim and Kate.  I visited Peyton last week (in Tulsa).  Fortunately, he’s a strong kid with a strong family.


Jim started studying how little money is spent researching childhood cancer.  Together, we gathered some statistics about childhood cancer and we put them on a website.  Jim’s goal is two-fold: to educate people about this issue and to raise money.


I simply ask that you click on this link and read the stats.  Be sure to scroll down the page to see the stats.  (The website is called “PrayingforPeyton.com.)  It would have been a good blog entry on leedsonfinance.com.  I think you’ll find it interesting.


In addition, I encourage everyone to pray for Peyton, other kids in his situation, their families and all of the people who take care of these kids.


Have a great week and appreciate your health.

If you want to receive these emails, here’s how:


1. click on this link (or type leedsonfinance.com into your browser)
2. toward the top right corner is a place to click on for email service — click and enter your email address
3. you will receive an email which will require you to click on a link to confirm that you want to be on the list

IMPORTANT: if you don’t receive the email in step 3 or you don’t click on the link, you won’t be on the list.  Sometimes, people who use corporate emails get blocked (it’s probably 50% of the time).  So if you don’t get the email, you know you need to use a personal email.
