I am a stage 4 Cancer survivor, I know first hand the fear, anxiety, despair that follows a diagnosis, not just the person who has been diagnosed but families, friends and loved ones. But to have children who have a whole life ahead of them, their dreams, goals, and aspirations squelched out of their minds and bodies is beyond even my comprehension as a mother and grandmother. So I have committed to not only fundraise on their behalf but also awareness to the amazing programs that St. Judes provides for all families who have no other options, a light at the end of a tunnel. Please join me in donating but also join our coming marathon Dec 5th. Hope that you will.
Did you know:
- 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 won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
- St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Donate today to help me reach my goal. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues.
