On March 4, 2013, my friend's nine year old son Alex passed away from his battle with cancer. Alex was only 9 years old. Since that day, Alex became my inspiration to raise awareness for childhood cancer and to also share infomation about St. Jude's Research Hospital.To honor Alex, I joined up with the St. Jude Peoria Run in hopes to raise money to help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital find cures and save children battling childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.
Did you know?
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food—because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
- St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade.
St. Jude won't stop until no child dies of cancer, and neither will I. Will you support me by making a donation?
Thank you for your help.
