Thank you so much for your interest in War on the Shore! But please remember, this is not for us, this is for every child that is lying in a hospital bed who hasn’t been able to enjoy all of the things that we have. It is for all those parents that would do ANYTHING to take the pain and suffering away from their innocent children, even if just for a day. It is for those that we have already lost and just as important, for those we can eventually save.

“Some day we will dance for joy… Untill then we will dance for a cure”
