Ana's Ultimate Hike Page
Thanks for visiting my Ultimate Hike page!
Zach and I are participating in a true ultimate challenge - hiking to raise funds for children's cancer research and programs to help put an end to this devastating disease. As a pediatric oncology nurse I see every day the devastating effects a cancer diagnosis can have on a child and a family. I hope that by caring for these children and families I am doing my part to help in the fight against pediatric cancer. I hope that you will join me in this fight. With your help, we can meet and surpass our fundraising goal!
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, including trials that I will be participating in through my job. In addition, they are the authoritative source for information resources about children's cancer for families and their support systems and support grants to for our national nursing organization to allow nurses to develop research projects to help better the lives of our patients and familes.
43 children are diagnosed with cancer each day and of those 43, five do not survive. Please, help Zach and I make a difference for all families affected by pediatric cancer by doing our part to help find cures!
Thank you for helping me work tell children's cancer to take a hike!
Please also visit Zach’s fundraising page and consider donating to him as well as we will be going on this hike together! We need the support of friends, family and all who want to help fight against pediatric cancer!
