Welcome to My CureSearch Walk Page
As you know, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. But this September is monumental for me. It marks 25 years since I heard those terrible words "you have cancer." I was 15, had just started my sophomore year of high school, and was blindsided by the news that I had leukemia. I was "lucky" that my illness had an 85-90% survival rate at that time, but that doesn't take into account everything I would endure, including two and a half years of chemo plus a stroke from one of those chemos. I still have long-term effects from the stroke that affect me to this day.
This is why I'm proud to support CureSearch. I'm participating in the 2021 CureSearch Walk to raise funds for children's cancer research, and I hope you'll support my efforts by making a donation of any size. With your help, we can change the odds for the 40,000 kids who undergo treatment each year!
Your donation will support CureSearch for Children's Cancer, a national non-profit whose mission is to end children's cancer by driving targeted and innovative research with measurable results in an accelerated timeframe.
- 45 children are diagnosed with cancer every day; one in eight will lose their battle.
- For the children who survive, most will suffer long-term toxic side effects from treatment.
- In the last 20 years, only four cancer treatments have been specifically developed and approved for children.
By supporting CureSearch, you're helping to find new, less-toxic treatments for the children who need them most. You can learn more at www.curesearch.org.
Thank you for your support!
