A few years ago, one of my closest friends was diagnosed with Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma. She was only six, and had to go through 42 weeks of chemotherapy, with radiation starting around week 13. At the end, she was declared cancer free, but relapsed later in the year. She went through it all again at age 7, and was cancer free again by the end. Then she relapsed for a second time. She fought and fought, but she got so sick that the doctors had to take her off chemotherapy. She died July 22nd, 2018, before her tenth birthday. #teamisabella
I am taking a stand against childhood cancer by joining more than 90,000 Mini-THON® students who are fundraising for Four Diamonds.
In the U.S., more children die from cancer than any other disease, with 16,000 kids diagnosed every year. But Four Diamonds ensures that every child they treat, regardless of income, receives the highest quality of cancer care without ever seeing a bill for that care.
Four Diamonds also supports the latest breakthroughs in research to benefit children around the world. Having a better understanding of how cancer works will help Four Diamonds’ researchers develop new, more effective treatments to test through clinical trials and save more lives.
But Four Diamonds needs your help to conquer childhood cancer. Please support my efforts to save more kids fighting cancer by making a donation today.
