In July of this year, my dear friends, Amy and Dave, lost their son Benjamin Dixon to Ewings Sarcoma, a rare pediatric cancer. Our entire community was devastated. The Dixons are a huge pillar of love, kindness and charity in Northern Colorado. For two years they shared their family's ups and downs, highs and lows, hopes and pain as they battled for Ben's life. Our community has come together in unity after Ben's passing to honor this sweet young man that exuded love and kindness every day for the 11 short years he was here on Earth with us. It was so heart warming to see how this young man was still bringing kindness into our world even after leaving us.
In Ben's memory, I will be participating in the United CureSearch Walk on September 25th and am raising funds to support the most promising new children’s cancer research in hopes that someday, all kids will survive a cancer diagnosis and go on to lead long, healthy lives.
I have committed to raising $1,000 in honor of Amy, Dave, and Ben as well as the 45 children who are diagnosed each day.
I hope you’ll support this important cause by joining me for the walk and/or making a donation. Any contribution is greatly appreciated and will make a real, measurable difference in lives of kids battling cancer. And please share with others too.
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 ten will not survive.
- 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!
