Hello Friends & Family!!
My name is Natalia, and as you may know, cancer struck my family when we least expected it. My mom was diagnosed with lung cancer, and it was a heartbreaking experience. It´s one of those things in life you will never be prepared for and also one of those you think will never happen to you. However, there´s always light and along with my boyfriend Colin, we have decided to run for her, for Andrea (a family friend who is going through this process right now) and the millions of people & kids that have gone or are going through this tough disease.
Today, we decide to bring some hope to the families and be a little light in this world.
Today, I'm choosing to run for more than myself. I'm using my running to help save kids' lives by fundraising for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as I train. I'm running for kids who might be too sick to run today, but who could one day be running alongside me because the money I raised helped find a cure for childhood cancer.
- 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.
Please donate and help me reach my goal!!!!!!
