This July will be my seventh St. Jude Run. What a blessing!
I am incredibly proud of my sister with all that she has overcome; her resilience will never cease to amaze me. I am so proud of the other children I knew that were afflicted with childhood cancer during our eight months at St. Jude. I am so proud of the children that fought their battle and did not make it; I know the Lord had other plans for them that are beyond my Earthly grasp. I am so proud of my mom; I admire her strength in the midst of the chaos and grief that comes from being a parent of a child with cancer. I am also proud of myself as I found a blessing amongst this hardship; this year I have begun my career as a NICU RN where I am able to directly care for ill infants and their families just as the nurses did for mine.
Each donation is going directly towards the medical care of pediatric oncology and hematology patients. I will be running this race in honor of all people affected by childhood cancer. Please, consider donating to this incredible. Thank you & God bless!
