I'm part of this year's relay team for the St. Jude Peoria Run. Please help me reach my fundraising goal for the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, who are battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Thanks to generous donors:
• 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 has been near and dear to my heart for some time now. Unfortunately, my childhood best friend lost her life to leukemia. Thanks to St. Jude, she got the best medical care possible, with no financial cost to her family.
I now have two healthy children of my own, and I thank God everyday for the wonderful blessings they are to my life. As a parent, I can't even image having to watch one of my precious children suffer through this awful disease.
So, in honor of Amy, and my children I have chosen to run the Chicago to Peoria St. Jude satellite run for the very first time!
St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer, and neither will I. Will you support me by making a donation?
