I am so excited to participate in this year's CureSearch Walk. The Walk benefits CureSearch for Children's Cancer and the money our team raises supports their mission to fund and support targeted and innovative children's cancer research!
Emersyn finished her 2.5 years of cancer treatment on August 15, 2015! She will be starting 2nd Grade in the fall! She is a healthy thriving SEVEN year old! We are so thankful that Emersyn is healthy BUT we can't forget where we came from - We can't forget that children are suffering everyday from Cancer - We must continue to raise funds for CHILDRENS cancer research. This matters!
Each year, the parents of approximately 15,700 kids will hear the words “your child has cancer.” Across all ages, ethnic groups and socio-economics, this disease remains the number one cause of death by disease in children. Despite major advances – from an overall survival rate of 10 percent just fifty years ago to nearly 90 percent today, for many rare cancers, the survival rate is much lower. Furthermore, the number of diagnosed cases annually has not declined in nearly 20 years.
We need your help to find a cure for childhood cancer! Please, join our team, register to walk with us, or just make a donation to CureSearch for Children's Cancer on Emersyn's behalf.
Together, we are fighting for the future every child deserves and every parent dreams of. Thank you so much!
