I am again asking for your support in the fight against childhood cancer. Again this year I have chosen to become a St. Jude Hero and have St. Jude Children’s Hospital benefit from two running events - the Rugged Maniac in Brooklyn in June and the Warrior Dash in Thompson in August. While I have been blessed with two healthy children, there are many parents who are not so fortunate but I know what these children have to endure as a cancer survivor myself. Please join me in supporting this great medical institution. Not only has St. Jude become one of the leading childrens cancer centers in the world, no family ever pays for treatment.
Continuing to train for this run is a yearlong commitment but these beautiful children are worth every minute of the training. It is hard to believe that prior to my own diagnosis in 2000 that I wasnt very active at all and after completing treatment I was 243 pounds and had difficulty doing much of anything physically. We together have come a long way, having raised over $75,000 since finishing my own treatment
How your donation helps:
- Thanks to donors like you, no family ever pays St. Jude for anything, including lodging, food and travel.
- St. Jude will continue to improve treatment of childhood cancer and other deadly diseases through it's groundbreaking research.
- For every child treated at St. Jude, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries.
Thank you for your support!
