I am a PhD candidate at St Jude doing my thesis work aiming to understand hereditary cancer predisposition syndromes. Every day I see these beautiful kids and the incredible work done at this institution. I am pledging to raise $2000 for the kids at St Jude and will participate in the Memphis half Iron Man as a relay, completing the 1.2 mile open water swim for this race.
I am a St. Jude Hero participating in the inaugural St. Jude IRONMAN 70.3 Memphis! I am fundraising for the kids and families of St. Jude. With your donation, we can cross the fundraising finish line together because the money you donate helps find a cure for childhood cancer.
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.
