Welcome to My CureSearch Walk Page
I'm participating in the 2021 Charlottesville 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!
I walk for Stefan, my late husband who was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma at 18 years old, just as he was graduating high school. Stefan endured 4 bouts of cancer over 8 years and had to endure endless rounds of chemotherapy, radiation, surgeries, and hospital stays. He did all of this with a positive attitude and a smile on his face, because he loved life. He made it his mission to live life to the fullest and spread joy to those around him. Today, it's my mission to ensure that kids have more effective, less toxic treatments so they can have the opportunity for a full, healthy life.
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. CureSearch also provides a variety of free resources for patients and families to help them navigate a cancer diagnosis.
* 47 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!
