27 miles to tell children's cancer to take a hike!
This is the third time I am participating in the Ultimate Hike. As a daughter, I hike for my parents who lost their first child at age of five to leukemia four decades ago. As a mother, I hike for my daughters who are learning the importance of caring and giving. As a researcher, I hike for my fellow scientists who are working hard to understand the disease and search for new treatment. As a pediatric hematology/oncologist, I hike for my patients and their loved ones who are the bravest people I have ever met. I want them to know that they are not alone. Together, we give hope and find a cure!
Cancer is the leading cause of disease death in children in this country with 16,000 children diagnosed each year. Of those who survive, 2 out of 3 will develop at least one chronic health condition due to the toxic treatments they receive. This September I'll be lacing up again and hiking 27 miles all in one day to raise critical funds for CureSearch's cutting-edge research programs. I'm training hard so I can take care of the miles, but I need your help raising funds. If you're able, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help tell children's cancer to take a hike. Better yet, let me know if you'd like to lace up and join me!

Thank you for your support.
