One of my jobs as a parent is to monitor my boys' online activities. When I visit their online communities, Facebook can seem like an endless stream of Justin Bieber reviews and LMS notifications (i've come to learn LMS stands for Like My Status). But recently, i've seen many of their friends and classmates sending prayers and best wishes to a little girl in Valley Center, a girl many of them have never met.
Paxten Pearson was diagnosed with leukemia in December, 2010. As i'm writing this, Paxten is in a Kansas City hospital undergoing two surgical procedures.
The "Prayers For Paxten" group (or P4P, as the kids call it), has become a community effort in Valley Center. Recently all the students at Abilene Elementary gathered for a group photo, all holding messages of encouragement & support for Paxten and her family.
Another community event is planned Tuesday, January 31, from 4-10:00 p.m. The Pizza Huts in Valley Center and Park City will donate 20% of all proceeds to the Pearson family.
