Millie Flamm was a spunky, fun-loving, generous little girl. She had a smile that lit up every room she entered. She loved to draw, paint, sing, dance, and design clothes. In December of 2009 Millie was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. She fought courageously for three and a half years. Even in the darkest of times, Millie had a smile on her face. Millie chose to be happy and lived by her own motto, “The grass is greener on our side, even with leukemia.” Sadly, she passed away on June 18, 2013.
To help the Flamm family with the financial burdens of Millie’s leukemia treatments, several of their neighbors organized a 5K run fundraiser. The event was such a success that a second run was planned for the next year, this time to help other families fighting cancer. From these races, the Millie’s Princess Foundation was formed. Every June, the foundation holds a 5K which honors a prince and princess who are fighting cancer. They also hold other fundraisers throughout the year. The foundation allows Millie’s memory to live on through the children they help.
Childhood cancer is expensive. There are medical bills, transportation costs, babysitting fees, and so many more unforeseen costs. The Millie’s Princess Foundation’s mission is to help families with the financial fallout of childhood cancer. The foundation is run completely by volunteers. Because of this, 100 percent of the money raised goes to families who are fighting for their children’s lives. You can find out more atMilliesPrincessFoundation.org.
MFP's mission is to help families with the financial fallout of childhood cancer. Because they are run completely by volunteers, 100 percent of their proceeds go to these families.
