On May 17, 2018 Bishop Boutique will be hosting a Smiles for Miles shopping event – 20% of all proceeds will be donated in honor of our sweet friend, Edie, who lost her battle to cancer last month.
After an incredible first 14 months on earth – a time full of love and travel and Elmo and bubbles – Edie was diagnosed with acute megakaryoblastic leukemia (AMKL). Edie was a fighter throughout her diagnosis, treatment and relapse, especially in her last chemo round. But cancer is cruel and heartless, and it doesn’t care how hard you pray or how deeply you love. On April 6, Edie passed away, but her fighting spirit lives on. The depth of our grief in her passing is the size of our great love for her, and while Edie only lived for 1 year, 8 months and 7 days, she was loved beyond measure.
On Saturday, June 9, Edie’s friends and family will run in her memory in Central Park, raising money to continue The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s funding of the breakthrough development of therapies that have already saved and continues to save thousands of lives. As a team, we are that much stronger, but still need the might of your support.
Please donate now to team Smiles for Miles and help us all get closer to a world without blood cancers!
Until there’s a cure,
Matt, Amanda & Eleanor
