Out of 3 daughters Mimi is our middle child, older sister Iza by 3 minutes and a younger sister Magi by 3 years. Mimi was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on August 12, 2009. After 2 years, 2 months and 26 days on November 6th, 2011 she took her last chemo pill and is considered OFF Treatment! This is our story of our journey through childhood cancer.

We Walked the Walk :)

What a great turn out!

50 + members joined our team and helped to raise money while having fun at the park.

We got up bright and early got on our purple sock monkey tees, socks, bandanas and whatever else purple we had. Purple umbrellas were also packed since the weather was a bit iffy. We got to the park and joined our team members, it was so great to see everyone! I wish I was able to talk to everyone more and thank them for coming to support The Purple Sock Monkeys. The miracle children were given giant red buttons so everyone could identify them as a miracle child and at the end of the walk they were given a medals of honor. Check you the Video Six Flags posted on their Facebook page, you can spot some of us!

This year as a team we raised $4,453.00, although that number will be higher since Mimi received donations from school that still need to be added to the total. All contributions will benefit our local Baystate Children's Hospital a part of the Children's Miracle Network and go to help save and improve the lives of as many children as possible!

A special Thanks to the following companies who contributed to The Purple Sock Monkeys

Callaway Employees
Frito Lay Northeast Region Employees Fundraiser
Phonon Corporation Employees
