Honestly, it is hard to remember a time when St. Jude wasn't a major part of our lives as a family. I have lost count of the number of times since Luca's diagnosis in 2011 that our doctors and nurses have said they don't have answers and that they have never seen a case like ours. Statistics don't apply to us most of the time, but we have never stopped searching for rhyme and reason even though we try to accept that we will likely never have answers to our questions. Just as we have never stopped fighting, St. Jude has been fighting alongside us every single step of the way. I’ve signed up for the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer because
-we are the family that never has to worry about paying a bill for Luca's scans, genetic tests, surgeries, and ongoing treatments,
-we are the family that has defied the odds due to unrestricted medical efforts to beat cancer,
-we are the family who has a home away from home in Memphis, TN,
-we are the family who has healthy food to eat while receiving tests and procedures,
-we are the family whose quality of life can continue thanks to generous support from people like you,
-we are a St. Jude family who wants to give back.
Will you please help me reach my fundraising goal of $4,000 by making a donation or by joining my team? I realize my goal is large, but every contribution makes a difference in the lives of families like ours. We will never stop fighting cancer, and I know that St. Jude will never stop fighting either.
