MY NAME IS ELISA, I'M 12 AND A 7TH GRADER AT NEW FAIRFIELD MIDDLE SCHOOL. I DECIDED TO CREATE THIS PAGE ON MY OWN TO RAISE AWARENESS FOR CHILHOOD CANCER AND TO FUNDRAISE FOR SAINT JUDE'S HOSPITAL. THIS HOSPITAL IS VERY SPECIAL TO ME. THIS YEAR INSTEAD OF ASKING MY FAMILY FOR DONATIONS I WANTED TO CREATE A PAGE AND SET A HIGHER GOAL FOR MYSELF AND SPREAD IT OUT TO THE COMMUNITY. THE CHILDREN NEED OUR HELP SO I PLEASE ASK YOU TO TAKE SOME TIME OUT TO READ MY COMMENT BELOW AND ALSO LEARN ABOUT THIS GREAT ORGANIZATION. LETS DO SOMETHING GOOD TOGETHER.
IN A COUNTRY WHERE WE ARE ALL BICKERING AND POLITICS AND DRAMA HAS TAKEN OVER WE HAVE TO REMEMBER WHAT MATTERS IN LIFE AND THAT IS THE POWER OF GIVING. ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL IS MY FAVORITE PLACE TO DONATE AND I ALWAYS TRY TO MAKE MY PARENTS DONATE BUT ONE PERSON IS NOT ENOUGH. THIS YEAR I AM MAKING A GOAL! PLEASE HELP ME REACH IT, ANYTHING, ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY HELPS EVEN $1! HELP ME RAISE MONEY TO HELP FIGHT CHILDRENS CANCER. CANCER IS SCARY FOR ALL AGES (I WITNESSED IT IN MY FAMILY) BUT ESPECIALLY FOR THESE POOR CHILDREN. WE TAKE SO MUCH FOR GRANTED IN LIFE, ALL THESE KIDS WANT IS HOPE.
COME ON, I KNOW YOU CAN SPARE SOMETHING, FOR KIDS JUST LIKE ME WHO JUST HAPPEN TO BE SUFFERING. THEY STILL HAVE THE SAME SMILES, DREAMS AND LOVE FOR LIFE. LETS MAKE THEM COME TRUE!
THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!

- 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.
