Day 34: I Officially have a Broken Toe (Dance Injury). But, That’s not Going to Stop Juggling for Jude! Plus, if you Watch this St. Jude Video, you will Probably Donate!

I saw an orthopedist today, and it turns out that my toe is broken from my injury at dance camp.  That’s me giving thumbs up on the Dr. table, because the good news is that he said I can do whatever I want, as long as it’s not too painful.  I played soccer today at team training, but when I went out to juggle tonight it was hurting a little.  I did some warmups and even got up to 42 juggles, but then I decided it would be smart to stop so I didn’t make the pain worse.  You might be able to notice that I don’t look as smooth as I normally do.  I know if I rest a little, I’ll be able to come back stronger when I’m ready to go for my goal of 400 juggles!  And I need to be healthy for a tournament next weekend.

When we got home, my mom suggested that we spend the time I would have spent juggling to find a video about a patient at St. Jude so everyone can see where the donation money is going. I found this amazing video about a girl who is only a little younger than I am.  Her name is Yamila, and she came to St. Jude all the way from Puerto Rico.  St. Jude saved her life.  She said in the video something so sweet.  She said “St. Jude is my best friend. I never want to leave it.” You should really watch her story here!

I really hope you will watch this video and then donate to St. Jude.  Please go to my donation page here and give whatever amount you can.  I really promise that every bit helps the kids like Yamila.  Please help save a life today!

Thank you for your support, and be sure to check my blog again before the weekend, because I think I’m going to be on TV again!
