This is my great nephew Tyler West and my great niece Alyssa De Jong. Alyssa has been fighting childhood Melanoma since 2010. Tyler is cancer-free after fighting A L L Leukemia since 2012! This wouldn't be possible without the dedicated and talented doctors and staff of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!
I am walking the 5k again this year, in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon, in Tyler and Alyssa's honor. I grew up in Memphis, TN and supported St. Jude my entire life. My Mother was also one of the first St. Jude Ladies. I want to thank everyone who helped me reach my goal of $500 last year and am asking for help to reach my goal of $500 this year! Any donations would be greatly appreciated. I know many of you may already donate to St. Jude so I would be honored if you could donate through me and help my family's team reach our goal of raising $25,000 for this wonderful cause! God bless you and thank you in advance for supporting my family and me.
