Yesterday, I got the privilege of participating in Carter’s Quest for a Cure, Colour Me Red for hemophilia awareness. Hemophilia is a rare blood disease that effects about 1 in 10,000 people in Canada.
Carter is a sassy six year old, with the brightest little smile. With such a big heart, it’s hard to believe that something like hemophilia could be a challenge in his life. But unfortunately, for this little guy and others across the world this is their reality. With one normal scrap of the knee to us, could lead to an extended stay in the hospital to Carter. It was an honour to meet Carter, even though he was a little shy!
A big thank you to the Airdrie Hair Lounge for sponsoring this event and getting all us girls ready in red! Being able to participate in this event was so much fun! I cannot wait for next year to show my continued support! Dying my extensions red for Carter was such a humbling experience, and I am so inspired by Carter to continue to be grateful for every day I have been given. Each day I meet more and more incredible individuals, I am truly blessed to be a part of such wonderful initiatives in my community.
