I'm getting ready to run my 3rd half marathon this year and to make it extra special I signed up to be a St. Jude Hero for a second time! There is nothing more motivating and fulfilling than helping others who are in need. Raising money for the fight against cancer is something near and dear to my heart for SO many reasons. So many of my family member and friends who were like family have suffered from this awful disease, so I've decided to help the only way I know how, raising money for patient care and research.
St. Jude is an amazing organization, they don't just help their patients while they're sick, but actually follow them through the course of their life!
I'm sure you've heard about the great things they do, but please take some time to read about them and donate from the bottom of your heart!
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Thanks to donors like you:
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
Thank you for donating and helping me reach my goal for the kids of St. Jude!
