Emma's Fighting Stars
8 years! It has been 8 years since our family learned that Emma Jean Pederson had leukemia at the age of 3. Since then, we have learned more about childhodd cancer, research, funding, treatments, cures and loss of life than any parent should have to know. But, because of this personal journey, we have learned how vital research is for childhood cancer and treatments that are tailored to pediatric patients are for survival and long term remission. It is because of CureSearch and the research conducted in concert with Children's Oncology Group, that allowed Emma to receive the same protocol of treatment that kids would recieve at major hospitals and university medicial centers accross the country, but we were able to reamain in our hometown. Supporting CureSearch, not only helps fund life saving research, but allows families in smaller communities with smaller medical facilities, receive the highest standard of treatment for their child's disease, through the Children's Oncology Group clinical trials.
Together, we will see the day when, every child that has cancer, has a cure!
I am super excited to participate in this year's Superheroes Unite! event. This event benefits CureSearch for Children's Cancer and the money our team raises supports their mission to fund and support targeted and innovative children's cancer research!
I can't do this alone. I need your help to be successful. Please, join my team, register as an individual, or just make a donation to CureSearch on my behalf.
