How Tulips can help in the fight against Childhood Brain Tumors

 

A graphic that says "Tulips Against Tumors" and "to benefit national Brain Tumor Society"

It’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM) and you can help in the fight by purchasing and planting Tulips.

After watching our slide show of the tulip fields near Mt Vernon in WA, we hope that you  will be inspired to hop on over to the tulips-against-tumors site to order some tulips that are non Genetically Modified, pesticide free bulbs.

Planting tulips with your children, grand children, or other young family members is an excellent annual activity to teach kids about gardening and about helping others through fundraising activities.  It’s also a great way to remember a loved one or friend who’s succumbed to brain cancer.

From the  Tulips Against Tumors web site:

Founded in 2005, the Kelly Heinz-Grundner Brain Tumor Foundation (KHG) partners with the National Brain Tumor Society to honor Kelly Heinz-Grundner who passed away in 2005 after a courageous two-year fight against a brain tumor. Kelly’s love of tulips inspired the 11 year tradition of selling tulips to support brain tumor research for treatments, and one day a cure. Read more About Tulips Against Tumors…

For other fun activities to teach youngsters about gardening, we have anatomically accurate coloring books with hundreds of pages of wildflowers that are ready to be printed and then given to any young artist or coloring enthusiast.  You can find the starting point for the color books on our color book page at: this color book link.

We hope that you can help in the fight against childhood brain tumors fundraising drive by visiting the Tulips Against Tumors site and purchasing some tulips.  Please make your donation in honor of  accessiblegardens if you don’t have anyone specific to honor.
