My daughter Logan was diagnosed with a Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), an incurable, highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumor found at the base of the brain, in May of 2015 at 3 years old. We researched all options and debated traveling to St. Jude for treatment but ultimately decided against it since the treatment would be the same regardless of hospital and we wanted to stay home in Nashville where our support group was close. Logan passed away in April of 2016 and my good friend Art reached to ask if we should put together a team to walk in Logan's memory. We've been joining every year since and always end up in the top earners because of our generous friends and family. Help us do it again this year by donating today!
There are so many reasons to support this wonderful organization but my favorite part of St. Jude's mission is families never have to worry about bills and can completely focus on their child. Your donation helps keep that going.
Why I Support St. Jude
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.
