Hello friends & family,
Last spring a good friend of mine motivated me to attempt my first half-marathon. This year, I'm going to challenge myself to take it a step further in a place I love to visit... I'm going to run (okay jog) the NYC marathon as a St. Jude Hero!
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.
Please prayerfully consider donating to help me reach my goal and more importantly to help find a cure for childhood cancer!
