Wren's Village Ultimate Hike Page
Thanks for visiting my Ultimate Hike page!
As many of you know, my family experienced a tremendous loss almost 4 years ago. My oldest brother Brian was a cancer warrior who fought 37 years of his life battling brain cancer and all of the horrific treatments and side effects that came with it. His battle started at just the young age of 3 years old when he was diagnosed with a massive Astrocytoma brain tumor. My parents were given a 3 month life expectancy for him to live. As many children aren’t always so lucky to beat those odds, my brother did. He lived a life that allowed him to be independent, resilient, and incredibly brave. At the age of 40 years old, that same Astrocytoma made its way back and sadly overcame Brain's never-ending battle. For this reason, I am hiking to raise money for those children who weren’t able to live 40 years of a life that they dreamed of. I am hiking for my brother Brian.
Another story that’s near and dear to my heart is about a sweet little girl named Wren. When Wren was just 4 years old, her and her family’s lives were turned upside down when she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a fast-growing cancer of the blood and bone marrow. After two long years of chemotherapy treatment, and many blood transfusions, this sweet little girl is on the road to recovery. In December, the family hopes Wren will be off treatment and in remission. I am hiking for my brave, sweet, little neighbor, Wren.
In honor of my brother Brian, and sweet neighbor Wren, and the start of Pediatric Cancer Awareness month, 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.
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.
5 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 in telling children's cancer to take a hike!
