I'm part of this year's relay team for the St. Jude Peoria Run. Please help me reach my fundraising goal for the kids of St. Jude, who are battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases. As a family physician, I have seen firsthand the hardships these families face and the benefits they receive from St. Jude.
Thanks to generous donors:
- 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.
I have the seen the fear on the faces of family members as they face these diseases and the gratitude for the support provided by St. Jude. I cannot fathom the pain that comes from losing a child, and my goal is to do my part to make sure that childhood cancer no longer holds that power over families. Likewise, St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer. Will you support me by making a donation?
