Welcome to Team "Fight Gabby Fight"
Thank you for visiting my page!
The little girl pictured above is sweet Gabby. She is a playmate of our oldest son Jesse. A little over two years ago at 22 months old, she was diagnosed with stage 4 high-risk Neuroblastoma. Gabby has had two years of active cancer treatment. Our family prays every day that good news will come, that the treatments have killed off her cancer and that once day she is cancer free. Every day we feel helpless for this beautiful little girl and her family, but I have chosen to do everything in my power to help raise funds towards Children's cancer research.
Sadly, 5 of the 43 children diagnosed every day do not survive. Unfortunately, most of the treatment and protocols for treating childhood cancer are those used to treat adult cancer. In 20 years, there have only been three new drugs introduced to help cure childhood cancer. To me, this is simply unacceptable.
With all that said, this year I will again be hiking 26+ miles. I hike in honor of Gabby. I hike to share her story. I hike for all of the children diagnosed with Cancer. Some of those children are survivors....sadly, most of them are not. I hike to raise much needed money for research and to develop clinical trials so that maybe one day, childhood cancer will no longer exist. Honestly? I hike because I have to do something to help.
I am very excited to participate in Ultimate Hike, a program of CureSearch for Children's Cancer! The funds I raise supports their mission to fund and support targeted and innovative children's cancer research! In addition, they are the authoritative source for information resources about children's cancer for families and their support systems.
So… I am asking you not to help me, but to help these children beat this dreaded disease. Any amount will help out. Please do what you can!
Together, I am fighting for the future every child deserves and every parent dreams of. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for kindness and support.
