I'm Walking to End Children's Cancer
Okay, I wanted to add my own little piece before you read the official stuff below.
If you’re reading this, then thank you so much already for just being here! I truly appreciate it! So my name is Abby Bickers and I am a childhood cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with ALL leukemia when I was 3 years old. I spent a lot of time in the hospital growing up and underwent tons of chemotherapy and experimental treatments that are now helping kids who are where I was today.
As you may or may not know, I recently lost my nephew a few months ago. My nephew Owen was huge part of my life and I considered him to be my “first born” son. His radiance was snuffed in less than 24 hours. Our family has not recovered, some days are better than others but the pain is still very much there. I would appreciate a donation from you as a sign of hope and support for many families like mine and children like me.
Hope is all we have, wether we are fighting, grieving, or surviving; it’s the one factor that ties us all together.
Now, on to the important stuff!
I'm participating in the 2019 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!
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.
- 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.
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!
