When Hailey Steward of Bethel was just 5 years old she was diagnosed with B-Cell ALL, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. That was 2012 and today she is still fighting, not just for herself but for other families. Hailey Hugs is a non-profit that has been raising money to help other families battling childhood cancer.

Another way that Hailey's family is trying to help others is by working to secure a license plate geared toward raising money for childhood cancer research. A Childhood Cancer Awareness License Plate would send $10 of the $15 from every registration and renewal to the Maine Children's Cancer Program for childhood cancer research. Learn more and sign up for one at Haileyhugs.org.

If it seems like this family spends a lot of time on health and fundraising, you would be right. However, they certainly love to have a good time. For her birthday, Hailey has asked for a special Daddy/Daughter dance. All are invited to the Western themed party at 8pm on March 18th at Crescent Park Elementary School in Bethel. It should be a barn burner! Get details and ticket information here.
