I am a St. Jude Hero! I have chosen to run for a reason bigger than myself by fundraising for the kids like Hogan and families at St. Jude! Most of you know my son Hogan was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in October of 2018. He’s been in treatment with St.Jude for over a year now and he’s in remission!!! Praise be to God! Until he became a patient I really didn’t realize the extent that St.Jude goes to make this life changing disease a little easier for the patient and their families! They don’t want you be have to worry about money for treatments, housing while living in Memphis, and many other things; they want you to focus on your sick child and getting them better! My family is training to cross the finish line on race day and 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 us reach our goal. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues.
