Dear family and friends,
Thank for for continuing to support our family's commitment to raise money to help fund better treatment options and to find a cure for all pediatric cancers. This is our fifth year walking with and raising money for CureSearch for Children's Cancer and we are honored to join these amazing families, caregivers, doctors, nurses, and most of all, the tiniest of heroes who are surviving cancer.
This June, our family celebrated Piper's sixth year in remission. Every year when we reach this milestone we feel incredibly blessed to have Piper in our lives. When Piper was diagnosed with cancer on June 2, 2010, at the age of 2, and during the 2 1/2 years that she received chemotherapy, it was very hard for us to imagine our future. But, thanks to receiving the best treatment possible, including participating in studies funded by CureSearch, our girl survived and thrives today.
Our family is one of the lucky ones. Piper is a healthy, energetic 8 year-old who loves to read, swim, travel, and play with her friends and cousins. Many of our friends continue to struggle with cancer and the side effects of its harsh treatment. Some of our friends are no longer here. Some of our friends have just begun this awful journey.
All of these children and their families deserve better. Please help by making a donation. Every dollar brings us closer to better treatments, a cure and more survivors.
Jake, Julie, Piper, Emmett & Calvin Novak
