I am excited that after 2 years of trying I will be running my first marathon in New York this fall as a St. Jude Hero. My friend, Anna Hensgens, and I have decided to embark on this journey to run in honor of our moms and I am honored to be raising money for an amazing organization at the same time. Please help me reach my goal by donating to help fight childhood cancer. Your donations will cover:
$30 blood clot test for 1 patient
$50 red blood cell transfusion for 1 patient
$75 birthday or "coming off chemo" celebration party
$100 spinal tap for 1 patient
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 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.
