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. Ever since my Granddaughter Mary Rose Harrington was diagnosed with Leukmia when she was just 3 years old, I have become more and more aware of the lack of cures for kids. It is so sad. Some of the "cures" they give these kids are over 45 years old. They are torturous and I believe sometimes the cure kills more kids than the cancer. Mary is one touch cookie and is now cancer free. She still goes in for tests to be sure the ugly monster isn't hiding in her little body somewhere.
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.
There are lots of trials for adults, but not so many for kids. Cures for adults do not work for kids. Adults earn money and raise money for their special causes, kids can't and they need us to do it for them.
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!
