Why I Support St. Jude
My nephew Brock Was diagnosed with AML around his 9th birthday, he became a patient at St. Jude and began treatment shortly after. He was in remission for a short time, then it returned and the doctors began preparing him for a bone marrow transplant. We were heartbroken when Brock succumbed to complications from his bone marrow transplant. He was 2 weeks shy of his 11th birthday! If it were not for St Jude we would not have had the last two years, for that our family is grateful.
Making memories. Supporting a mission. That’s why I’ve signed up to fundraise for the St. Jude Walk/Run. This September, I’m joining the nationwide movement to honor Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and support those who need us most — the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Can I count on your donation to help me reach my goal?
When St. Jude opened in 1962, childhood cancer was considered incurable. Since then, treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent.
And because St. Jude shares the breakthroughs it makes, every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Thank you for supporting me and the lifesaving work happening at St. Jude today. Let’s cure childhood cancer. Together.
