Being in the profession I'm in, I have been hit by childhood cancer more than I would have expected.
I've been in that medically driven IEP meeting.
I've been in that meeting where we learn a student is back in the hospital.
I've been that teacher giving homebound services.
I've also been that friend watching from afar as I pray for a child to make it through their next treatment or surgery.
St. Jude is there to find a cure, to support families in their time of need.
No donation is too small. Please consider giving to this amazing cause.
I'm running for every kid battling cancer. Especially my former students ♥
I am a St. Jude Hero! I have chosen to run for a reason bigger than myself by fundraising for the kids and families at St. Jude. I am 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 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.
