Cancer is horrible. Cancer is wrong. Cancer in a child...well now, that’s the ultimate wrong. I’ll be running the half-marathon in Memphis this coming December as a St. Jude hero to help raise money towards defeating childhood cancer, so that in the future, no parent has to experience seeing their beloved child go through the hell of battling such a devastating disease. My goal is to raise $3,000. If you feel inclined, please check out my fundraising page. Every penny will go towards research and finding a cure for childhood cancer.
See you all at the finish line,
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 is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and they 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.
