Welcome to My CureSearch Walk Page
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.
Did you know the most current childhood cancer treatments were approved before 1990? Imagine relying on 1990's technology to solve modern-day challenges, but that's what kids with cancer are facing today.
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.
* 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.
Why do I walk? I have watched the beautiful little girl in my profile picture, Abby, go through these toxic treatments. While we are so blessed that she is a brain cancer survivor, there are lasting side effects from chemo and radiation. We need to help with funding because there is very little federal aid to support the research needed to help improve these treatments. Your donation can help!
Thank you for your support!
