I'm running to raise funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, because no parent should have to hold their child while they take their last breath. My son Benjamin died on April 17, 2016 shortly after his birth. We were blessed in many ways because we were able to hold him and keep him comfortable for his short time on earth; however, I ache every day to hold him and watch him grow with his big brother. There are no words that can express the grief a parent feels when they lose a child. I chose to run for Saint Jude's because it is helping me heal both physically and emotionally. My personal goal is to raise $3,000 and donate it in Benjamin's name, but I am doing this not solely for that. I am doing it so that in the future we can make it so children can live healthier and parents can hold their children longer.
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Thanks to donors like you:
Thank you for donating and helping me reach my goal for the kids of St. Jude! God Bless
