My passion to end childhood cancer begin in 1985 when I met a 7 year-old girl named Emily Gilroy. Unfortunately, Emily lost her battle with cancer in 1989. But today, thanks to advancements in treatment for the type of cancer Emily had, the cure rate is 85-90%! That's why I've signed up for the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer, and I need you to help me reach my fundraising goal. Support me by making a donation or by joining a team.
Why St. Jude?
- Thanks to our supporters, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for anything.
- St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate for childhood cancer from less than 20% when we first opened our doors to 80% today. St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
