Why We Support St. Jude

St. Jude Walk/Run - Portland, OR

Team Mariah

Our daughter, Mariah, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in December of 2020. She was 8 months old. Her specific type of brain tumor called for proton radiation therapy as part of her treatment plan. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is home to the world’s first proton therapy center solely for children and because of Mariah’s young age, we hoped we could take her there. The day we got the call Mariah had been accepted as a patient at St. Jude, we cried. We were packed and on our way to Tennessee one week later. St. Jude quickly became nothing short of a second home to us. It’s a place where miracles happen. It’s a place where every child receives the highest quality of care and compassion any parent could wish for. It’s a place where families feel camaraderie and hope as they fight for their child’s life. It’s a place where battles are won. 

In July of this year Mariah relapsed. We again moved the family to Memphis to start treatment. Mariah is currently halfway through her first cycle of the SJDAWN non-protocol treatment plan. St. Jude is the ONLY hospital where Mariah can get this specific treatment, nowhere else has ever done it. Once she finishes two cycles of these two very specific chemotherapies, she will have scans to see how her cancer responds and from there we make more decisions. We unfortunately cannot be there in-person for this event, but it would bring our hearts so much joy to see YOU there, in honor of Mariah. We are fighting this battle the only way we know how…on our knees in faith because God is the ultimate healer and miracle worker, and we believe in Him! And with the support of our team here at St. Jude, whom we are forever grateful for. Without St. Jude, Mariah would not have the option for the treatment she is getting right now.  And by joining Team Mariah you can help; it is so very important.

A donation of any amount will help, please join us in the fight!

Since its founding 60 years ago, 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 us and the lifesaving work happening at St. Jude today. Let’s cure childhood cancer. Together.
