Why I Support St. Jude
My sister, Allie, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in March 2020. We rushed to Memphis, Tennessee, where the incredible doctors at St. Jude removed most of her tumor. She developed a complication, and had to re-learn how to walk, talk, write, etc. with the help of the team of St. Jude physical, speech, and occupational therapists. She has been stable for 3 ½ years, and is now a freshman in college! My entire family is incredibly grateful to everyone at St. Jude, so this year I am hoping to raise money and awareness during Childhood Cancer Awareness month to help St. Jude continue helping people like my sister!
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.
