Author description

Wayne and Lori Earl are the parents of the late Esther Earl and founders of the non-profit organization This Star Won't Go Out (tswgo.org), whose mission it is to financially assist families struggling through the journey of a child living with cancer. Together Wayne and Lori have created a financial and emotional support system for more than 50 families struggling with childhood cancer, giving out nearly $100,000, from purchases of TSWGO bracelets, through donations given individually, at LeakyCon, and Project for Awesome; and by fabulous fundraisers planned and implemented by individuals and groups. TSWGO also funds occasional projects that fit their mission statement, such as sponsoring events for children with cancer, giving financial support to pediatric cancer research, and other related projects.
