Welcome to My Ultimate Hike Page
Thanks for visiting my Ultimate Hike page!
I am participating in a true ultimate challenge - hiking to raise funds for children's cancer and with your help, I can surpass my fundraising goal! Please, make a donation and make a difference in the lives of the 43 children diagnosed with cancer each day.
At only 17 years old my best friend, Emily, was diagnosed with AML (acute myeloid leukemia.) Only five months after her diagnosis she lost her fight. I’m hiking in memory of Emily and in honor of all of the children who fight every day.
Did you know that in the past 20 years only THREE drugs have been created specifically for children’s cancer? Children are often given the same drugs as adults, sometimes in the same or higher doses. Children’s cancer only receives 4% of the funds for cancer research, this is NOT okay!
The money I raise will support CureSearch for Children's Cancer, a national non-profit foundation whose mission is to fund and support targeted and innovative children's cancer research, with measurable results. In addition, they are the authoritative source for information resources about children's cancer for families and their support systems.
Five of the 43 children diagnosed every day do not survive. Please, support me as I help change the odds for those children most at risk.
Thank you for helping me work tell children's cancer to take a hike!
