Welcome to Sheldon Bright's 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.
I know what you are thinking. Your kids are healthy and your wife is in remission from her lung Cancer. Yes both of these are true. Thank God! However, I was deeply affected by my encounters with children with Cancer when my wife was at MD Anderson Cancer Center.
One day waiting for the elevator, I met a small boy who was battling cancer. He was just being a kid. Smiling and laughing and talking to his Mother. He had no hair and you could tell from the color of his skin he was going through Chemotherapy. His Mother was smiling and talking to him. It was the look in her eyes though that still weighs heavy on my heart. She was looking at her child and smiling but your eyes were very tired and sad. She was holding it together FOR her son but inside you could tell she was heartbroken. Who wouldn't be? I cannot imagine how terrifying it must be to have your child, your baby, diagnosed with Cancer. The thought "My Child might die?" is so painful to even imagine.
I would like for no parent to ever have to experience this. Please help me by donating to this cause. 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 to tell children's cancer to take a hike!
