As many know, My grandson Job Kemp recently passed away from a cancer called DIPG. DIPG stands for diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma. It is a type of high-grade glioma, a brain tumor that comes from cells called glia that surround, protect, and otherwise support the nerve cells in the brain.. I am raising funds for St. Jude in his memory and attempting to participate in the St. Jude 1/2 marathon Dec. 2019. Ironically, the weekend of the race falls on Dec. 8, which would have been Job's golden birthday. Asking for your support and please feel free to share my page with others. Thank-you in advance for this worthy cause and helping to eradicate cancer and help the children of St. Judes.
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.
