Sometimes I look at our daughters and I am so overwhelmed with love for them. Having children truly is like walking around with your heart outside of your body. I pray over them that they will be protected from harm or sickness. Right now my children are healthy, and hopefully yours are too. Some parents however, are not so fortunate. Childhood cancer is something no parent, or child, should have to face.
I have registered for the Disney Marathon, and will be fundraising to raise $2500 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as I train. I'm running for children who might be too sick to run today, but who could one day be running alongside me. All of the funds I raise go to St. Jude, and not to support my marathon trip (I do get a tshirt but I'll happily let you wear it :)
- 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!
