I'm Walking to End Children's Cancer
Working with pediatric oncology patients, I often get comments that sound something like "That's so sad" or "I don't know how you do it." Sometimes it is sad, it is always hard, but many I'm filled with overwhelming joy for being given the heart and opportunity to take care of these little warriors and get to be a small part of their families life. These kids and their families go through more than many of us can even imagine, and for that they deserve more.
This week Jordan and I will be participating in the 2019 Omaha CureSearch Walk to raise funds for these little warriors through children's cancer research. Please, if you are able, consider supporting my efforts by making a donation to this amazing cause. Hopefully with your help we can change the odds for the 40,000 children who undergo cancer treatment each year.
Specifically, 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.
Some additional facts (in case you needed some more research to back up your donation):
43 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.
These warriors deserve better.
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.
