Please Help! See note below -

I'm writing about your #1 MIZZOU fan, our 7 year old Columbia, MO first grade grandson, Shayden that is going through chemo for ALL leukemia. He is doing well and responding to his treatments. He is being so brave and not fussing about everything that they are doing to him. He has had a Nascar race car designed in his honor and for leukemia awareness. It is done in orange and green (leukemia colors), has the orange ribbon on it, says Race for the Cure, and has his picture on the roof. The final winner will get to go to the Atlanta race and see their design actually race and ride in it. It will be painted as designed for the race. Each car has only 15 days to be voted on. His car has 5 days left counting today. We need 9,000 votes in 5 DAYS! You can only vote 1 time per computer per day. It will take a lot of help to even get to the top 10 cars for the second round of voting. Then the voting starts over on the top 10 vote getters. It is a long shot, but we are trying to get this done for our 7 year old Nascar fan. It brightens his day and brings smiles to his face watching the votes come in for his #11 Hamlin Leukemia Awareness Car. We have attached the link below that will take you to his car to vote. If it doesn't work you can go to toyotaracing.com, click on the sponsafier car box, on the next page click on gallery-then click search and type in SHAYDEN'S RACE CAR, when his car comes up click on it to get the voting page, click to vote. If you can do this we thank you for our Shayden.

Please send this to anyone that you think would help with voting, your facebook friends, e-mail, twitter, etc. Thank you and please keep Shayden in your prayers. Please help us raise awareness for leukemia and help a 7 year old's dream come true!

His voting time ENDS TODAY around 7:30PM. The others have more time than his. Please vote and send this to everyone you know, and ask them to share it.
