FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BARRY MOORE CHALLENGES ELECTED OFFICIALS AND CANDIDATES TO SUPPORT
ALABAMA CHILD’S CARDS FOR A CAUSE CAMPAIGN
Enterprise, AL–Barry Moore, Congressional candidate in Alabama’s 2nd District, has challenged Alabama’s elected officials to join him in supporting Ayalynn James on Giving Tuesday. James is this year’s Cards for a Cause campaign recipient.
Enterprise native James, age 4, suffers from neuroblastoma. Despite a year of surgeries, chemotherapy, and treatments her cancer has returned. She and her family will be traveling to Michigan for care there with a neuroblastoma specialist.
Barry Moore has been working with James’ family to help arrange insurance coverage for Avalynn’s treatment in Michigan. This appears to have been settled, but the family is struggling with the costs of traveling to Michigan with Ayalynn. Barry Moore has now challenged Alabama’s elected officials and candidates to send a Christmas card with a single dollar inside to Avalynn to help her family to show their support for her on Giving Tuesday.
Barry Moore said in a statement:
“Avalynn is a four-year-old girl from Enterprise who’s battling a very aggressive type of cancer. Her family had reached out to us for help. We’ve been able to secure her insurance coverage for her treatments there, but the family is still struggling with the other costs of her treatment.
“We’re asking you to send this child a Christmas card with a dollar bill in it. If we can get 3,500 people to send her a card, that’d go a long way in getting the family up there. Let’s fill her living room with Christmas cards, with love and prayers and support to help this family. Let’s do what we can to show the love of this community and state for this family.
“This Giving Tuesday, I’m challenging every elected official and candidate for office in Alabama to join me in sending a card with a single dollar to Avalynn. Let’s work together to help this girl and her family have a Christmas miracle.”
Cards can be sent to Avalynn at P.O. Box 310152, Enterprise, Alabama, 36331.
Cards for a Cause was founded by Angie Adams after she lost her son to cancer. She discovered how meaningful cards can be to seriously ill children. The cards remind sick kids that they are not alone in their battles, and donations help offsets costs to the family. Avalynn is this year’s Cause recipient.
Barry Moore will be on the Republican ballot in the March 3rd, 2020 primary election. He is running to replace Martha Roby in the AL-2 seat.
