My name is Tara Butler, I am 13 and a half years old and I live in Ireland!
In December 2010 I was diagnosed with leukemia and had a tough battle for my life for a while but in February 2012 I was given the all clear! I am now a normal happy teenager. Ever since I was given the all clear, I have been realising how lucky I am to be alive still as many people die from this disease. My motto is to always live life to the fullest, thats why I am here writing asking you to help me fundraise.
My friend Lizzy and I are hoping to go to Dubai to speak to a bunch of children who are suffering from leukemia in the 'American Hospital' on June 14th 2013 for one week but unfortunately I am having a bit of trouble funding for it. It costs $1700 USD for flights and accommodation. My parents are helping me out with $1000. If I could raise any amount of money whatsoever I would be more than greatful!
Every cent counts, whether it be $1 or $100, I will appreciate it!
If you are interested in hearing more about my story or receiving pictures after the holiday, let me know! Nothing is too much hassle!
I am just please asking you to make it possible for me to go to Dubai and meet this bunch of children!
From the bottom of my heart, thank you so so so so so much,
Tara <3 x
