Before Grier Christenbury lost his battle with cancer on Thanksgiving Day, he attended Selwyn Elementary.
“My friend is Amy, Grier’s mother, and one day I decided I was going to help kids who were battling cancer by baking cookies,” says Gretchen Holt-Witt. Witt started Cookies for Kids Cancer, after her son, Liam, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at just two years old.
“Together, my friends help me bake 96,000 cookies, but I couldn’t have done it alone if it wasn’t for my friends and together we raised over $420,000.”
Cookies for Kids Cancer is having a bake sale in Charlotte this weekend to raise money for research for kids’ cancer treatments.
Holt loves how Charlotte has embraced this cause. “This town alone, this weekend, will probably find a treatment. I mean, we’ve done it every year, for what the past five years. Five years. I mean it’s just incredible.”
All day on Saturday, cookie sales are being held around the area to raise money for the charitable organization.
